Antarctica is definitely not one of the most accessible places on our planet but if you ever visit it you will realize the place is worth all your efforts and time. Surprisingly, more and more people sign up for one of the trips organized yearly in the area by professional wildlife and ice experts. The Antarctic summer, November to March, is by far the most popular period to visit the continent, mainly because of the long days, which usually last for just over 20 hours.
The long days create fantastic light conditions for those passionate about photography, so if you want to enjoy these breathtaking landscapes and remember them over the years make sure you bring your camera. Antarctica is also the only place where you can see penguin eggs hatching or seals breeding. The fauna is absolutely fantastic and if low temperatures are not a problem for you planning a visit is mandatory!
