It took a decade of planning (not to mention saving) to reach Antarctica. There aren’t really any budget options for a visit to the white continent…yet. Tourism is on the rise though and the tourism board is scrambling to not only keep up with influx of tourists, but also to ensure it does not damage this endangered place.
Those that can find a way to justify the cost will find a breathtaking monochromatic world with minimal human interference, though still bearing the scars of past incursions. Here are 16 photos from my unbelievable week “down south.”
