Travel to Antarctica
Only a lucky few get to experience travel to wonderous Antarctica — a life-changing voyage you should trust only to the seasoned experts at A&K. More than a seventh continent to conquer, it’s an extraordinary place beyond a bucket list, addictive in its beauty, ever-evolving and home to the world’s most important conservation research work. At the edge of the map, the White Continent represents the last true wilderness and a launching pad for dramatic extremes. Gargantuan icebergs and glacier-cloaked mountains, stunning bird and epic marine life not found anywhere else on earth, geothermal beaches and dramatic light reflected across ice-blue seas — count these among Antarctica’s many magical displays.
