Antarctic no-go

You don’t see too many tours to the Antarctic, and there’s a reason for that. First, most humans flee at full speed away from frigid temperatures. Unless you’re a skier, you are usually looking for deals to Tahiti or similar climes. It’s always nice to come back from a trip without frostbite.

As a primer, here is more about this barren land: Antarctica, the southernmost continent and site of the South Pole, is a virtually uninhabited, ice-covered landmass. Most cruises to the continent visit the Antarctic Peninsula, which stretches toward South America. It’s known for the Lemaire Channel and Paradise Harbor, striking, iceberg-flanked passageways, and Port Lockroy, a former British research station turned museum. The peninsula’s isolated terrain also shelters rich wildlife, including many penguins.

But, all jokes aside, in many cases, you can’t visit the Antarctic. You’re just not allowed. And that probably sounds unfair, doesn’t it, especially if you have the means to take that trip, and you positively won’t cause any problems with the environment there.

And, as it happens, there are very good reasons why you should perhaps think of a different destination. Watch the video below and learn more about our fragile planet. There are very good reasons.
