viewing penguins in antarctica

The end of the world is just the beginning

Colder, drier, and windier than anywhere else on the planet, Antarctica is so extreme and remote that it barely feels like it’s part of Earth at all. But it’s that very otherworldliness that appeals to the adventurous souls who come here. Painted in shades of white and blue, the landscape is as beautiful as it is forbidding: monstrous glaciers, saw-toothed mountains, colossal icebergs, and fields of ice that stretch on forever. But as barren as it looks, life – specifically penguins, whales, and seabirds – finds a way to thrive here. The journey here is long, and the memories earned, eternal.
