The southernmost of the Earth’s mapped five major circles of latitude, the Antarctic Circle is renowned for its extremely icy air, stark wilderness landscapes and exotic wildlife. The continent of Antarctica falls within the area of the Antarctic Circle. Antarctica is spectacular, a wilderness of landscapes reduced to a pure haiku of ice, rock, water and sky, filled with wildlife still unafraid of humans. A land of extremes, it is described by a bevy of superlatives – the driest, coldest, most inhospitable and isolated continent on Earth, Vast and ownerless. Antarctica is unique, and a journey here is like no other.
