Hillary, Ross, Byrd, Shackleton…and you? Once unimaginable as a tourist destination, today thousands of people travel down to the bottom of the planet for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Not every voyage is the same, however, and although options may be more limited than a traditional vacation, there is still much variety and many fascinating places to explore. Whether you brave Drake Passage or fly directly to the last continent, a visit to Antarctica is a must for every nature-loving travel enthusiast.
