This remote and mysterious part of the world draws many visitors.

Penguins are the main inhabitants of Antarctica

The Earth's southernmost point, Antarctica is the driest and coldest of the seven continents. For a place that's 98 percent covered in one-mile-deep ice, it's hard to imagine why anyone would want to visit at all. But there's an eerie, stark beauty about Antarctica that is incomparable to anywhere else on the planet. Sprinkle in some penguin sightings and you've got one of the most unique settings in the world. While Antarctica has no permanent residents, there are often up to 5,000 researchers working there at a time. We recommend visiting by cruise ship.
