Brief Directions: Hmmm. Catch a cruise ship, sailboat or scientific vessel in Argentina (I boarded in Buenos Aires) or Chile and head south over the Drake Passage into the Southern Ocean, aiming for Antarctica's long Antarctic Peninsula.
Best Season: Summer
Description: The coastal peaks, glaciers and an occasional sailboat, star in the blue early morning light along the Antarctic Peninsula. The dots on the snowy ridge in the foreground are, of course, penguins.
