Serene, empty, surreal and beautiful -- On the White Continent, nature reveals herself in all her majesty
There’s a bit of a bite in the air as you skim across the chilly waters of the Weddell Sea off the coast of the Falkland Islands. You’ve left the comforts of your luxurious cruise ship behind for an excursion that’s only possible here. All around you are glaciers and icebergs, some towering as high as skyscrapers. Aboard your zodiac you gasp in awe as you hear a whale just a few hundred feet away coming to the surface for air. Further on, you see a large white outline moving across a canvas of snow and ice. As you grow closer, you can make out two polar bears, a sight to behold in their natural habitat. Ashore, you marvel as you imagine yourself Gulliver, the giant surrounded by literally thousands upon thousands of penguins. Between the exotic wildlife that can’t be found anywhere else on earth, to watching some of nature’s most breathtaking sculpted scenery pass you by awash in luxury on a top-of-the-line cruise ship, an Antarctic cruise vacation offers you adventures found nowhere else on earth.
