Patagonia and the White Continent
One of the main reasons to embark on an Antarctic Cruise is, of course, to step foot on the Antarctic Peninsula itself. This thin string of islands, covered in a sheet of ice, juts away from the mainland and is shaped like a crooked finger pointing northwards towards South America. Covered in steep glaciated mountains and deep snow, it is virtually impossible to cross without flying over it, meaning most cruise boats will either head east or west to avoid it.
