One of the great tourism frontiers for travellers, explorers and adventurers is Antarctica, Earth's southernmost continent. Located in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, it is home to the geographic South Pole. This remote region is popular with tourist seeking an experience that is different and memorable.

Whilst there are tours that can fly to Antarctica, many visitors prefer the experience of reaching Antarctica by ship, with a number of operators available dependent on your route. The best times for visiting the Antarctic Peninsula is usually between mid-November and early March. East Antarctica is less accessible, with the best time to visit being late December to March.

For those travelling on the Marina Svetaeva, they use Zodiac inflatables with their outboard motors to get you from the ship to where ever takes your fancy. Some of the dramatic backdrop to the freezing waters from being surrounded by floating ice to coastline devoid of snow, but rest assured it is still very cold.

The Australian Government - Australian Antarctic Division website lists Australian tour operators for the Antarctic. For those planning to include Macquarie Island World Heritage Area, information is available from the Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service.


Many thanks to Jennifer Cooke for sharing the story and images of the wonderful tour she went on with Aurora Expeditions to Antarctica.
