lifetime journeys to the bottom of the planet

Remote and rugged Antarctica, with its monumental and otherworldly scenery, is beautiful in a way that staggers the mind. Perhaps equally astonishing is the dazzling array of wildlife—leopard seals, orcas, seabirds and more—that inhabits this seemingly barren landscape of glaciers and ice-bound ridges. We sail south on comfortable ships, weave through sea-mountain passages, and Zodiac ashore to hike, photograph, take in the triumphant wildlife, and even camp or ski.
