Antarctica

Antarctica is a land of extremes: it is the coldest and driest continent on Earth and has the highest average elevation. As the fifth largest continent in the world, Antartica is also the most Southern, overlying the "South Pole". Scarcely touched by humans, the frozen land boasts breathtaking scenery, broken by only handful of scientific bases and a "permanent" population of scientists numbering only a few thousand. Visitors to Antarctica generally must brave rough sea crossings aboard ice-strengthened vessels, but those who do are rewarded with amazing scenery and tremendous and unique wildlife.

The Frigid World of Antarctica

By Travel Outsider

Antarctica the most inhospitable place on Earth.

Antarctica considered by many as one of the last pristine regions on the Earth, and the most inhospitable. It offers the adventurous traveler the world’s most magnificent wilderness, abundant concentrations of wildlife, icebergs sculpted by the sea, oceans covered by pack ice, mountains, vast snow covered plains, mammoth glaciers, and other breathtaking scenery.
