Our Winter Lust – Antarctica
People say that you don’t go to Antarctica; you earn a visit to it. If you have an insatiable sense of adventure and a respect for the elements, head to Antarctica to be in awe of the place. Get set to experience extremes – extreme nature, extreme cold and extreme adventure.
The fifth largest continent in the world, largely untouched by man, has an aura about it that is hard to describe in words.
Man-made instruments for recording time like clocks and calendars do not determine the time of your visit here; ice and weather do. In a vast, harsh but beautiful land, learn to let go of yourself and appreciate the fact that you are just a tiny speck in the universe. Penguins, seals, albatrosses, petrels and giant killer whales all live in the icy climes of Antarctica indifferent to the human ways of life. It is a humbling experience.
From Cook to Amundsen to Scott, man has been trying to penetrate the vast mysteries that Antarctica hides in its depths but all have achieved limited success. Whether you come by sea or flight, expect the unexpected. Some of the world’s most extraordinary species and most amazing icy sights will await you. Are you brave enough to take it on?
We take you on a pictorial journey to Antarctica to give you a snapshot of what lies in store for you.
