Although the environment can be harsh, during the Austral Summer Antarctica teems with life. Between November and February, visitors can closely observe dolphins, whales, seals, and penguins.
The scenery here is breathtaking. Jagged vertical peaks, ancient ice floes, and colors ranging from black to green, to deep blue. In Antarctica, the golden hours are prolonged; dawn and dusk are often bathed in orange, red, and gold.
Crossing the Drake is a rite of passage—a tribute that adds to the sense of camaraderie and anticipation. It’s an adventure, and it heightens the sense of connection to the first explorers. Air-cruise options are available, allowing visitors to fly over the Drake, bypassing the nearly 50-hour journey by ship.

“Antarctica has this mythic weight. It resides in the collective unconscious of so many people, and it makes this huge impact, just like outer space. It’s like going to the moon.”

First light at Machu Picchu is an unforgettable experience. At dawn, the site is often concealed by low clouds. As the sun rises, the mists slowly dissipate to reveal walls and plazas — first in glimpses, then in majesty.
