Glistening white, dazzling blue, raven black – in the sunlight the land looks like a fairytale. Rows of points and peaks full of cracks, wilder than any country on earth, it lies there, never beheld, never treaded

Good to know - A trip to Antarctica is one you won't forget soon, but it's also not an average destination. Read here what you need to know for a trip to Antarctica.

Flora and Fauna

During the expedition cruises you will spot different animals. The first thing you will notice during a visit to Antarctica, are the many penguins. Plants on the other hand, you won't come across many. They generally grow very slowly on Antarctica, but they can get very old. Some lichens are already hundreds of years old!

Activities

During an Antarctic expedition cruise you go ashore several times, this is called 'landings'. You will then be brought ashore with a zodiac. With a few expedition cruises other activities are also possible, such as: diving, kayaking and camping! 

Practical information

Antarctica is not an average travel destination. In preparation, there are a few things to think about. 

Small-scale ships

During this period, the daytime temperature on the Antarctic Peninsula is around 0 to 5 degrees, comparable to a winter sports holiday. However, the weather is variable and you can experience different climatic conditions in one day, even during one landing. Sometimes, due to strong winds, the feeling temperature can be considerably lower, think of about -18 º C.

An unforgettable journey to Patagonia and Antarctica

With our whole family we made an unforgettable journey to Patagonia and Antarctica. Sapa Pana Travel organized the trip for us and everything was taken care of down to the last detail. We enjoyed the 'wonders of nature', immense glaciers, beautiful lakes, penguins etc. Especially the zodiac trip on Antarctica was an experience to remember. In short, amazing!
