    FAR AND AWAY
    In Antarctica, everything is extreme. It is the most remote and least-known continent on earth. You’ll see icebergs larger than Luxembourg, spectacular
    mountains of rock 140 million years old and wildlife thriving in some of the most severe conditions on earth. Exploring here with Adventure
    Associates, you’ll see why Antarctica holds a special place in our imagination. It’s a transforming experience.
