Antarctica: Exploring the frozen corners of the world
Antarctica is the last continent discovered by men. Most of its 14 million square kilometers are covered with ice, which is about 1.5 kilometers thick.
This territory is located almost entirely within the Antarctic Circle, and because the lines of longitude meet at the poles, Antarctica encompasses all time zones on the planet. Its name derives from the Greek word Antarktikos, which means “opposite the Arctic”, that is, opposite the North Pole.
Its history is linked to the era of explorers and adventurers. From Cook, Bellingshausen, Weddell, and Ross, to Amundsen, Scott, Nordenskjöld, and Shackleton, Antarctica beckoned man with its uninhabitable lands, challenging seas, and the promise of great discoveries.
Today, the White Continent continues to captivate people’s imagination, with a different imprint: the unforgettable experience of visiting one of the last places on the planet where nature still dominates, undefeated.
