Beautiful skies. Surroundings free of nearly all modern-day noises. Picturesque vistas. Untamed wildlife. These are just a few of the things you experience when traveling to the world's polar regions.
Every trip, every destination, and every adventure has a "Why" and for every traveler, that "Why" is different. Antarctica and the islands of the Southern Ocean are no exception.
Antarctica often feels so removed from the rest of the world; it is easy to forget that getting there requires going through some other fabulous destinations, too.
Polar expedition cruises to the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands typically embark in one area of Argentina, and sometimes disembark in another, providing the perfect opportunity to include some Argentine sights at the beginning or end of your voyage.

Generous, athletic, caring, and gregarious — with all their charms, it's no wonder King Penguins often serve as the quintessential image of the black and white bird.
South Georgia's birds are a bit safer this week after a years-long project to rid the island of invasive rodent species was complete.
