THE WHITE CONTINENT

ANTARCTICA

Antarctica still retains its mystery. Travelling to the seventh continent is a challenge that very few travellers ever face. It is a unique experience that brings with it unforgettable memories and awakens your curiosity and sense of wonder.

Roland Huntford , a reporter for the London newspaper The Observer, wrote a legendary chronicle where he recounted the race between the Brit Robert Scott and the Norwegian Roald Amundsen to conquer the South Pole for the first time, On 21st century travellers no longer pursue the same challenges. Places like Antarctica  are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the ambitions of today’s travellers, like, for example, the discovery of new experiences, self-improvement, the search for new landscapes and the unquenchable thirst for adventure.

Antarctica is a remote and magical place that now welcomes, with its imposing beauty, those who come to visit. It is home to colossal bays, immense glaciers, sharp pieces of ice that jut out from the blue water, and the endless white that covers the seventh continent of the Earth. Here you can admire the wildlife that has dared to defy the laws of nature. For instance, those crazy little creatures known as penguins who, despite always chasing the sun, cannot live far from the cold. You may also catch sight of those legendary whales that sailors like old Captain Ahab, aboard his whaling ship the Pequod, searched for in pursuit of Moby-Dick.

You can take a cruise across some of the most unspoiled places still left in the world or sail along the lands of southern South America (the continent closest to Antarctica). Disembark with scientists and explorers in search of new challenges for science, go on long hikes in snowshoes and even go kayaking surrounded by ice.

The first explorers who came to this land, always sheltered in the ice. They said that the extremes of our planet are magnetic: not only do they attract compass needles like magnets with their polar forces, they also entice us because they represent pure adventure. Antarctica is the queen of this spell.



The F&S ‘MUST SEES’

  • Spectacular ice landscapes, imposing icebergs. Antarctica is still a remote location shrouded in mystery. A Terra Incognita, as the old maps called it, an unspoiled nature.
  • During the austral summer, a large number of penguins, whales, seals and water birds gather to feed and mate. Unconcerned by the presence of humans, these animals are an endless source of inspiration for passionate photographers.
  • The call of adventure. Discover the Strait of Magellan, Tierra del Fuego, Torres del Paine and Chilean Patagonia.
  • On the edge of impossible. Antarctica knows no limits. Explore with scientists, hike in snowshoes, spot marine animals, go kayaking in waters surrounded by ice...
  • Sailing aboard an exclusive boat on a sea that is truly at the end of the world. Relaxing on the boat, savouring a fine whisky on the rocks (Antarctica's ancient ice), while the music and chatter in the background create the soundtrack.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS…
"It is a corner of the planet where the ice sheets can be up to 4,000m thick, and in which information has been accumulating for thousands of years, information that we should decipher before it is ruined".

Josefina Castellví, scientist and director of the first Spanish scientific base in Antarctica (1989-1993)
