ADVENTURE BEGINS AT THE EDGE OF ANTARCTICA

When asked why go to Antarctica, the answer can be many things. Because there are only a handful of destinations left on the map that we can truly call life changing. Because it’s a vast wilderness at the bottom of the world. Because its beauty humbles, its temperature surprises and its inhabitants are some of the friendliest you’ll ever meet (and we don’t mean the scientists). Over 5.5 million m2 (that’s larger than Europe and Australia), Antarctica doubles in size every winter, providing a haven for the abundance of wildlife that call it home. Penguins, whales, seals, albatrosses, not to mention the many other seabirds and plethora of underwater life you have never heard of make the snowy plains and icy waters their home. Unobserved and unaware of human behaviour, forget Shackleton, Scott et al; these are the true kings of the Antarctic. We go to Antarctica because the landscape is both bold and behemoth. Its surreal silence is a welcome change to the rush of daily life; because getting connected here refers to with yourself, not online. Yet despite its inaccessibility and its inhospitality, Antarctica’s charisma shines bright. Blinding white deserts as far as the eye can see, spectrums of colour in every iceberg, monochrome and orcas breeching before your very eyes. We go because it’s there. That’s why.
