Take an adventure cruise to Antarctica
This once inaccessible mass of rock, ice, and penguins now attracts upwards of 50,000 tourists each year. Most will visit aboard expedition cruises from the likes of Lindblad, Silversea, and Quark Expeditions, which typically depart from Ushuaia, Argentina, during a small window of time in the Southern Hemisphere summer (November to March). Unlike your average cruise in the Caribbean or Mediterranean, trips often involve educational sessions, adventurous excursions (like kayaking, hiking, and mountaineering), and harrowing Zodiac rides to some of the lonely landmasses along the way. If you’re looking for the ultimate destination to one-up your friends, earth’s remotest continent should fit the bill quite nicely.
