Antarctica is a destination unlike any other. While most vacationers opt for the usual tropical retreat, a trip to the White Continent remains one of the most unique experiences of a lifetime. Once known by explorers as "Terra Incognito", Antarctica boasts the most rugged and perhaps spiritual missions known to man. Antarctica holds the record for the coldest, windiest, driest, and highest elevation on Earth. The journey there is an adventure in itself, as crossing the turbulent Drake Passage south of Argentina will not soon be forgotten.
