Antarctica is Earth's southernmost continent, and the South Pole goes through here.

Would you have any interest in going here?

Yes, I would love to go there even though I hate the cold.
However at the moment I do not feel like travelling so probably will not get there.

It is not on my bucket list (don't actually have one!), even though I would find it interesting.

I know a wonderful family who have done the Antarctica trip,and despite the years which have passed they have never forgotten a moment of it! I would personally LOVE to visit this amazing region,but only if I could be assured of being able to stay warm!!
That's a huge
I think I would freeze! But, like Jules has said, if I was assured of being able to stay warm - and if I was assured my presence wouldn't contribute to the degradation of this majestic place - I would go in a heartbeat.

I absolutely hate the cold, so no. This would be hell for me.
I have flown on an Inaugural QANTAS flight, to Antarctica!

Thirteen hours non-stop return. 11673 klms!
It was THE most marvellous experience!
Even beats flying over the North Pole, which I've done several times!

The camaraderie on board was fantastic, & all had a WOW of a time! The meals served were excellent. Snacks & drinks were available the entire time. All included in ticket price. So too, speakers' on varying pertinent subjects.

Spent THREE hours, at 10000', doing huge figures of 8, over our Territory, which is 41% of total land mass there. We could see to the Horizon, 165 mls away, & it was just pack ice.
We saw Mawson's Hut, & a French freighter unloading at its' base.

A radio-operator from our Davis base spoke to us from there, explaining life on the base, from season to season.

At exactly three hours', we zoomed back to cruising altitude, for 5half hour flight home!

Better than going by ship, IMO, & certainly a lot more comfortable!

Three cheers for the 'Flying 'Roo'!

10 years ago I gave that idea to my husband for his 60 birthday present. He’d love for us to go, but hasn’t doesn’t anything about it yet. He’s always organised our holidays, because he’s done it through his previous job, (but has now retired). (His company he worked for doesn’t pay for the holiday by the way!)
Hi Finy, I know it's difficult to get a photo for some subject matters, but I believe the above is possibly of Torres Del Paine, Patagonia.

The water colour also is wrong for Antartica.
I would love to visit Antarctica. It's been on my list for a long time ever since I read the incredible book about Tom Crean
