The coldest place on our planet, with temperatures dropping below -60°C (-76°F), Antarctica is truly unlike anywhere else on Earth. It has fascinated explorers from all over the world since the late 1800s, marked by the first major expeditions to uncover the mysteries of the White Continent.
A journey into the great unknown
The first part of our expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula makes a stop in Ushuaia, Argentina, the world's southernmost city and the gateway to Antarctica. Often referred to as the 'end of the world', it marks the beginning of our journey.
Two days later we reach the White Continent, after crossing the famous Drake Passage, one of the roughest waterways in the world. Ready to face anything, from stormy “Drake Shake” to peaceful “Drake Lake”, we set a course for adventure.
