Tours In Antarctica

Antarctica is planet Earth’s southernmost continent. Encapsulating the South Pole, it is situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern hemisphere and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. At 14.0 million km2 (5.4 million sq miles), it is the fifth-largest continent in area after Asia, Africa, North America, and South America, and is nearly twice the size of Australia.

Antarctica, on average, is the coldest, driest, and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. About 98% of Antarctica is covered by ice that averages at least 1 mile (1.6 km) in thickness. Considered a desert, Antarctica has an annual precipitation of only 200 mm (8 inches) along the coast and far less inland.

The temperature in Antarctica has reached −89 °C (−129 °F). There are no permanent human residents, but anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 people reside throughout the year at the research stations scattered across the continent. Only cold-adapted organisms survive in Antarctica, and vegetation where it occurs is tundra.

Despite the cold and desolation, nothing can compare to the wonders and awe inspiring beauty of Antarctica. The world's last frontier, it is a continent of dramatic ice mountains and never ending snow fields, jagged icebergs of every shape and size, and wildlife which is nothing short of astonishing. Come and discover the rugged beauty that is Antarctica!
