Things to do in Antarctica 

EXPERIENCES 
 
 
Antarctica has long been considered a destination for scientists and photographers. However, in recent years, the continent has become one of the most desirable, off-the-beaten-track destinations for adventure seekers. Aside from the hauntingly beautiful icebergs and mysterious mountains, the landscape and seas are rich in wildlife.  
 
Nowhere is the same in Antarctica, with each destination offering a rather different experience.

Incredible experiences to try in Antarctica  

The best way to experience the immense beauty of Antarctica is from the sea, where land & marine wildlife are easier to photograph & view. Visitors usually opt for a zodiac cruise among the icebergs. 
 
There are a variety of guided excursions leaving from almost every island on the continent, each offering a unique adventure.  
If you're looking for a less traditional travel activity, then camping under the Antarctic stars is definitely for you. 
 
You'll set up camp with the help of experienced guides after a zodiac cruise, with all equipment provided. Locations will vary according to weather conditions. 
Far from desolate, Antarctica wildlife have found a way to exist in the most adverse of conditions. Penguins, seals, flying birds, orcas  
& whales are some of the wildlife you can look forward to seeing.  
 
View the ice desert specialists on wildlife tours, whether from the water, on land or helicopter flight.  
You'll do a lot of walking in & around various points of interest, such as research stations and historic explorers' huts. Perhaps the most exciting are the wildlife hikes offered by tour operators. You'll be able to get close to the famous Antartic penguins who are known to waddle close to visitors. Tour operators typically offer trekking poles, parkas and muck boots to make your hike easier. 
 
For more experienced hikers/climbers, Mount Vison in the Antarctic Peninsular or a trek to the South Pole are highly recommended, life-changing experiences although they take months of preparation. 
You don't need to have experience to brave the Antarctic snow, but the challenge of shredding the slopes on skis or snowboard is worth it. With plenty of high peaks on the continent, Antarctica offers close to 80 slopes & glaciers that you'll find nowhere else on earth.  
 
Most skiing expeditions offer camping or yacht stays as accommodation on your excursion.  
See the frozen landscape of Antarctica from the air, arguably the most scenic flight on earth. This is an amazing way to see the true size of this wilderness. 
One of the most epic ways to explore Antartica is in a kayak. Not only will your wildlife viewing be a more intimate experience, but marine life such as whales, leopard seals and orcas are known to swim alongside you. If you only do one thing in Antartica, it should be this. 
The cousin to the Aurora Borealis, Antarctica's Southern Lights phenomenon is equally as spectacular. It's much more challenging to view the lights, but this is what makes it that much more special. Viewing usually takes place on a cruise with an experienced guide.  
 
March is the best time to chase the Southern Lights.  
Humans are always pushing the boundaries of endurance & the Antarctic Marathon is no exception. The marathon usually takes place in December near the South Pole when the weather is milder & sunnier. You can compete in the classic 42 km race, or for the less fit; the Frozen Continent Half Marathon.  
 
Become part of only a handful of people who have ever competed in this epic race. 
If jumping into -2°C water is your idea of adventure then taking the invigorating plunge is well worth it. This guided experience is perfectly safe, so long as you jump in and out quickly. Initially you won't really feel the cold with your adrenaline in overdrive. A warm spa & hot drink awaits you, as well as some serious street cred.  
 
For advanced scuba divers, Antarctica is unlike anything you'll ever experience. It's a crystal-clear underwater world with rich, unspoilt marine life. You need to have logged 20 dry-suit dives before you explore. 
Antarctica is a world of contradictions. In the middle of this ice desert, thermal springs bubble up from an active volcano on Deception Island.  
 
Bring along your swimsuit and bath in these perfectly temperate pools in the middle of a snowy tundra. 
You will be guaranteed to have a camera in your hand from the beginning of your trip, to your return home. The landscape is simply gorgeous, an otherworldly realm of ice, sea & unspoilt wildlife viewing.  
 
Photographic tours are availiable with resident photographers & workshops to ensure you capture the perfect shot. Don't forget to bring a decent camera along. Tours typically last between 7 to 10 days.
