The last unexplored place on Earth, a mysterious world filled with huge icebergs and a kingdom of penguins.

Antarctica, known as the “White Continent,” was first discovered by humans in 1820. Covering an area of about 14 million square kilometers, approximately 37 times the size of Japan, it is the last untouched natural wonder on Earth. Massive icebergs float in the sea, and towering mountain ranges covered in millennia of snow stand among them. Setting off from South America towards Antarctica, one can experience a magnificent journey through drifting ice and icebergs. Traveling in small Zodiac boats, tourists can observe up close the natural habitat of penguins, seals, whales, and seabirds. Since being opened to general tourists about 40 years ago, only a limited number of visitors are allowed to explore this isolated and boundless “White Continent.”

Antarctic Islands

The Antarctic Islands are located at the southern end of the Drake Passage, separated from the Antarctic Peninsula by the Bransfield Strait. These islands comprise 11 large islands and numerous smaller ones, with a climate that is warmer and rainier. On Half Moon Island, one can see chinstrap penguins, Antarctic terns, and skuas; on Livingston Island, there are emperor penguins, macaroni penguins, walruses, and great skuas; and on Penguin Island, chinstrap penguins, Antarctic sea lions, and walruses. Deception Island, an active volcanic island, experienced a major eruption about 10,000 years ago. The top part of the island collapsed, allowing sea water to flow in, forming a horseshoe-shaped island. The coastal seawater of the island is warmed by geothermal heat.

South Georgia Island

South Georgia Island, located in the South Atlantic near the Antarctic Peninsula, was discovered in 1675 and is shaped like a crescent. The island is home to thousands of penguins and hundreds of large sea lions, seals, and birds, living on its rugged cliffs and shores. At Fortuna Bay, there are king penguins and seals; at Gold Harbour, Antarctic fur seals and walruses; and at Cooper Bay, macaroni penguins and king penguins. Explorer Ernest Shackleton once explored here and established the first whaling station.

South Orkney Islands

The South Orkney Islands are located 1,360 kilometers northeast of the Antarctic Peninsula, mostly covered by thick glaciers and often surrounded by ice packs from the Antarctic Sea in winter. These islands were discovered in 1821 by the American Nathaniel Palmer and the British seal hunter George Powell.

Falkland Islands

The Falkland Islands, a British territory located in the South Atlantic, consist of over 420 islands, with East Falkland and West Falkland making up the majority of the land. The capital, Stanley, is the most bustling place on the islands. Five species of penguins live here, including king, emperor, rockhopper, macaroni, and Magellanic penguins. There are also albatrosses, fulmars, leopard seals, and sea lions.

Ushuaia (Argentina)

Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, is located at the southern tip of Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego. In summer, it is the starting point for Antarctic cruises, with many cruise ships docking in Ushuaia. In front of the city lies the Beagle Channel, leading to Antarctica. The city has an old train, once used to transport prison construction materials, now known as the “End of the World Train.” There is a museum displaying the history of the indigenous people and the early history of Ushuaia, as well as the “End of the World Post Office” located in the Tierra del Fuego National Park.

Antarctic Continent

The northernmost part of the Antarctic continent is the S-shaped Antarctic Peninsula. Compared to the interior of the continent, the climate is warmer and the wildlife is more abundant. The only two flowering plants on the Antarctic continent – Antarctic hair grass and Antarctic pearlwort – are found here. Previously a refuge for whaling ships, now one can still see whale skeletons. Petermann Island is the southern breeding ground for emperor penguins. One of the most beautiful places on the Antarctic Peninsula is Paradise Bay, a tranquil bay surrounded by ice walls and various icebergs. This used to be an ideal stop for whaling ships. Argentina’s General Brown base is located here. The Lemaire Channel, between the Graham Coast of the Antarctic Peninsula and Booth Island, is 11.2 kilometers long and 40 meters wide, and is one of the most scenic straits in the Antarctic Peninsula. Ships slowly pass through the narrow strait, with breathtaking scenery on both sides.

Buenos Aires – The Paris of South America

Teatro Colón (Columbus Theater)

One of the world’s top three theaters, it features an elegant and dignified architectural style. It is one of the few theaters in the world that produces its own costumes and props. It currently houses ninety thousand costumes, twenty thousand pairs of theatrical shoes, and more than five hundred different set designs. Famous vocalists like Pavarotti and Domingo have performed here.

Avenida 9 de Julio

The most important urban landmark of Buenos Aires, it is the widest avenue in the world, with a total of 18 lanes.

Venice of South America Yacht Cruise

Charter a boat to enter the world’s second-largest delta, known as the “Venice of South America” – the Delta. Explore the vacation destination of Buenos Aires’ aristocracy of the last century and dine in a famous restaurant on one of the islands.

Argentinian Sleepless Night – Tango Dinner Show

In 2009, the United Nations inscribed Argentine tango on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Tango is not only Argentina’s dance but also its culture and pride. Enjoy a brilliant performance at one of the best venues in Buenos Aires, savor the flavorful steaks, and sip on aromatic red wine. A dazzling experience with a lingering taste.
