The Antarctic is recognized as the harshest and most inhospitable continent on the planet, characterized by extreme cold, dry conditions, and strong winds. It has the highest average elevation of all the continents. Antarctica is commonly referred to as the largest desert in the world, with only 2% of the continent not covered in ice. Unlike the Arctic, the high elevation of much of Antarctica contributes to its freezing temperatures, making it colder than its northern counterpart. Also, the Arctic Ocean covers the north polar zone, transferring the ocean’s relative warmth through the ice pack. Sea life in Antarctica includes penguins, blue whales, orcas, and seals. The ideal period to embark on a trip to Antarctica is late spring to early fall, as the sea ice conditions permit ships to navigate the stunning glacial landscapes.
