Although Antarctica is mostly uninhabited and is known to be the coldest, windiest, and driest continent on earth - not to mention that during summer it receives more solar radiation than is received at the Equator in an equivalent period – it is also one of the planets most desired destinations. It wasn’t until 1840 that the pristine remote wilderness area of Antarctica was established as indeed a continent and not just a group of islands.

About Antarctica Travel

Antarctica is the world’s fifth-largest continent, following Asia, Africa, North America, and South America, but larger than Australia and the subcontinent of Europe. It has a total land area of 14 million sq km (280,000 sq km ice-free, 13.72 million sq km ice-covered). With average elevations between 2,000 and 4,000 meters and mountain ranges up to nearly 5,000 meters, Antarctica also hold the record as the highest continent on earth.

It is the Antarctic Peninsula with the most moderate climate that attracts most visitors. The abundance of wildlife around this area, including whales, various species of seal and bird life (in particular penguins) and the beautiful iceberg formations that make Antarctica one of the hottest destinations.
