A whale in Antarctica
If ice, snow and temperatures of -50 degrees Celsius are really your thing, then you might want to consider a trip to Antarctica. Something different than your annual winter sports holiday in the French Alps. Antarctica is the continent of the South Pole and surrounded by the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Antarctica is almost completely covered by an ice sheet. In this coldest area on Earth, the average temperature is between -40 and -60 degrees Celsius. The ice sheet is on average 2.200 meters and in some places even more than 4.500 meters thick. Ice or not, incredible tours are also organized on this barren continent.
Kayaking in Arctic Water
Maybe it's not a tour you would immediately think of. You should! Awe-inspiring Antarctica is more than just cold and chattering teeth. Hiking on glaciers, kayaking in the ice sea, camping on glacial plains and swimming at volcanoes are some unique activities you can do here. Of course the whale watching is not forgotten. Every day is adventurous and takes you to unexpected cold places.
Crossing from South America
You arrive at Antarctica via a ferry crossing from South America. This crossing takes you past immense icebergs and white fjords. The penguins and fur seals will give you a warm welcome when you arrive on this special continent. Just pack an extra pair of gloves in your suitcase and you're good to go!
