Explore Antarctica on a Titan Travel holiday
Holidays in Antarctica represent the pinnacle of adventure, with notable numbers of visitors - not including scientists or explorers - only heading to the icy region as recently as the 20th century.
A getaway to this part of the world with Titan Travel consists of an Antarctic ocean cruise from Argentina - a destination well worth getting to know in its own right - to the Antarctic Peninsula and the various islands of the continent.
One of our Antarctica holidays also offers the chance to stop in the Falklands, making for a truly non-stop adventure.
It's easy to think of Antarctica as a snowy wilderness where not much happens, but the fact is the area is teeming with animals and birds, making this an excellent destination for a wildlife watching holiday with a difference.
The Antarctic Peninsula is the northernmost point of the continent and the perfect place to get to know Antarctica via a cruise from Argentina.
Here, you can visit locations such as Paradise Bay, the Gerlache Strait and the Schollart Channel to marvel at wondrous glaciers and huge mountains, as well as see a plethora of land and sea life.
These include the Gentoo penguin, which are distinctive by their orange beaks and the single white stripe that flashes across the top of their heads. If you're lucky, you'll get to see their superior diving and swimming abilities compared with other penguin species; Gentoo penguins are able to dive as deep as 170m below the water and swim at speeds of up to 36km per hour.
Islands of Antarctica
The continent's islands are also ideal ports of call for Antarctica cruises and penguin watching holidays. The uninhabited Elephant Island is one of these, providing plenty of opportunities for passengers to spot some of the local wildlife.
Located off the Antarctic coast, the island is home to elephant seals and penguins, among other creatures. The former are particularly large, with male elephant seals able to grow to 6m in length, although this is not why they have been named after the elephant - these seals boast inflatable snouts that can become similar to a trunk in shape.
Argentina and the Falklands
While Antarctica will undoubtedly be the highlight of your holiday, the time you get to spend in other destinations is also sure to create some fantastic memories.
Many Antarctic cruise ships depart from Ushuaia, the southernmost city on the planet, which is itself accessible from Buenos Aires.
You will have plenty of time to explore both of these locations on your holiday to Antarctica, as well as other destinations such as the wildlife-rich Horn Island, Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands, Puerto Madryn in Patagonia and Montevideo.
As such, you can expect to enjoy an incredibly diverse cruise holiday that will enable you to fit the best of the natural and cultural worlds into one trip.
A cruise to Antarctica is one of the world's great journeys and is sure to be one you will never forget.
