Compared to other continents, Antarctica remains the most untraveled by humans. The majority of human activity consists of scientific research explaining why most destinations are, in fact, stations and camps for researchers. The climate is so cold that some of these research stations are only open in the summer season.
Quite a few countries have laid claim to Antarctic land, but many of these claims are disputed. The only true means of reaching the continent is through work or through a tour operator. Individuals fortunate enough to reach the continent will be impressed by the icy white landscape and wonderful wildlife.
