Gap Year in Antartica

The “snowy desert” is the southernmost point of the planet and the choice of the most courageous travellers. With a land mass greater than Europe and a population of zero, this vast continent is explorable only by the dedicated adventurer. Temperatures reach -80 deg C, and virtually no plant-life survives here.

Voyaging through this dramatic continent is surely the experience of a lifetime. Most visitors take an expedition to discover Antarctica, but it’s not cheap – package prices start at about £1800.
