Antarctica, one of the most remote and desolate places on the planet is also known as the South Pole and the southernmost continent in the world- and yes, it is actually classed as a continent. However, Antarctica is not quite the size that people think and is actually only the fifth largest continent in the world and is only twice the size of Australia- although, you have to admit that is still pretty big. Despite Antarctica’s reputation bring of a cold, icing desert, it actually is home to a huge range of wildlife and animals such as colossal squids, fur seals and penguins will house there. Alongside these larger animals by comparison, smaller organisms like fungi and bacteria can and will leave on the continent despite the extreme conditions. Believe it or not you are able to set foot on the same ground as the famous explorers Captain Scott and Roald Amundsen. These trips are expensive and can only be reached by boat, but you will be able to step foot where only a small number have trodden. So check out out guiders and our research on the best way to get there. If you have anything to add to our guides, or you have been to Antarctica yourself we would love to hear from you.
