    The Earth is beautiful, but it’s not always a fun place to be in. Deserts and snowy, icy corners of the planet are not everyone’s idea of a good time, and when it comes to Antarctica, for example, few people except for scientists would be willing to spend time there.

    But as maligned as Antarctica might be, it is in fact a very interesting choice of a travel destination, and not just because visiting a continent covered in ice at the South Pole of the planet sounds cool.

    A trip to Antarctica might just convince you that even the most inhospitable spots on the planet are actually excellent places for holidaymaking. Here’s a traveler’s guide to visiting Antarctica, for those who are looking for a freezing adventure.
