Huge icebergs that gleam like marble, soaring mountain ranges and the vast emptiness of the polar plateaus will leave you open-mouthed. Surprisingly, the most remote and harshest continent on the planet abounds with wildlife.

Antarctica is an ideal place for whale-watching, with over 8 different species found in its waters, including the largest of them all, the Blue Whale.
