For a truly spectacular trip to a place where few have gone before you, venture to Antarctica, arguably the very last frontier on earth. Home to the legendary South Pole and a land of extremes where the world's top scientists are still only scraping the surface of all that this icy land offers and influences. The most popular way to visit Antarctica is part of a cruise, and Latin Excursions has some tips for how you can think about planning your journey to the ends of the earth.

  • Don't Forget Your Creature Comforts On trips to anywhere else in the world, it is typically guarantee that you will stop by cities or small towns that allow you to stock up on snacks, that toothpaste you forgot, and lovely souvenirs. However, there are no towns in Antarctica to speak of, about 2 dozen scientific stations more focused on conducting research than catering to travelers. This means what you see is 100% authentic, and also that you shouldn't leave at home the items you love to have with you!
  • Consider Your Style Antarctica can be as cool and relaxing or as wild and adventurous as you want it to be. It is the continent that hasn't yet been defined by humans. Cruising by small vessel or sailboat is often the most popular way to navigate around the iceberg-laden channels, enjoying the comfort of your fully outfitted boat while gazing at the spectacular wonderland around you. Some vessels are more adventurous and expeditionary (with guided hikes and Zodiac excursions, for example) while others are catered to travelers looking for an indulgent experience. How do you want to see Antarctica?
  • Remember to Sleep The sun never sets on Antarctica, another symptom of its extreme location on the globe. Therefore, it is important to consciously maintain a healthy sleep schedule and body clock. If traveling by boat, your cabin's blackout curtains will prove to be literally lifesavers. For your own habits, remember that just because it's still light out doesn't mean the day isn't over!
  • Hit 2 Birds with 1 Stone Since Antarctica does not have any towns, much less any airports, visitors must first fly to Argentina. The southernmost airport in Argentina is in the port town of Ushuaia, which is easily accessed from domestic flights out of Buenos Aires and other destinations in the country. Therefore, a vacation to experience both Argentina (rich in culture) and Antarctica (rich in landscapes) make a most ideal combination indeed.
