A visit to Antarctica will likely be a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore somewhere truly unlike any other place on earth, a magical world where all home comforts are left behind.
Travel Health Information
The harsh weather conditions make Antarctica the coldest, direst and windiest destination on the planet. The top health risk for travellers is the extremely low temperatures, and so visitors should always make sure they have the appropriate kit and clothing before travelling here. The glare from the sun on the snow can be so bright that visitors risk damaging their eyes and skin, and so protective eyewear is also highly recommended. You must always take adequate food and essential supplies with you, even if you’re travelling as part of an organised tour. It’s also recommended that you have means of summoning help and communicating your location in the unfortunate event of an emergency.
