Usually when we think of Antarctica, we think of a huge ice island floating around and a bunch of penguins. And the Antarctica, which I have seen only through TV so far, is almost like a planet outside the earth and far from reality. In fact, Antarctica accounts for 60% of the Korean Peninsula, accounting for 9.2% of the Earth’s land area. In 1821, after humans took their first steps, Antarctica was on the bucket list of thousands of explorers and travelers for over 200 years. But looking for someone who has been to Antarctica around us is a star in the sky. If so, is it possible to tour the southernmost continent of the earth, Antarctica? Of course, if you have studied Antarctica, you can visit Antarctica with a scientist or researcher. Professions such as chefs, hairdressers, and plumbers can also be supported at the Antarctic base. But Smart Incom wants to let you know how ordinary tourists can visit Antarctica for pure travel. Here are five ways you can travel to Antarctica:
1. Take a cruise trip.
The most common way to get to Antarctica is on a cruise. Most Antarctic Cruises depart from Ushuaia, South America’s southernmost point in South America, and usually have a 10-to-3-week package. But forget about the huge luxury cruise we usually imagine. The Antarctic ice can not afford a big boat, so you can only use a boat with 280 passengers in 45 passengers. For reference, these cruise packages can cost from $ 4,500 to $ 16,000 for 10 days.
2. We leave the same day airplane tour.
The fastest way to see Antarctica and the whole way to see it is the same day airplane tour. I just can not get off the plane and only have to watch the Antarctic view for a few hours and go back through the windows. Of course, the tour guide will give you snacks on the plane and kindly explain the scenery and history around you. Currently, these Antarctic day tour packages only depart from Australia. Usually the reservation is full, depending on your seat or during off season / peak season, the amount varies from $ 1,000 (about $ 1.12) to $ 8,000 (about $ 9 million).
3. Book luxury air + ski + camping packages.
Luxury air packages are available only a few times a year in Australia, Chile and South Africa. Some of the packages include camping, skiing and mountain climbing. If you are camping for 1 night or 2 days, it can be resolved at 5 million won, but you have to pay 50 ~ 70 million won for 1 or 2 week skiing or mountain climbing package. Typical companies include ‘White Desert’, ‘The Antarctic Company’ and ‘Adventure Network International’.
4. Get on France supply line.
A contract with the ‘Mer et Voyages’ travel agency in Paris will pay for the € 8,030 package, which will start a French supply ship “Marion du Presne 2” from Réunion Island in southeastern Africa to the South Pole for a month Available. Of course, the public can also board this supply line.
5. Participate in extreme marathon or ski tournament.
That’s right. Indeed, once every year, the ‘Ultra Ice Marathon’ and the ‘Half Marathon’ are held in the South Pole and anyone can register if they pay a combined price of 15,000 euros (approx. You can also apply for an entry to the Antarctic ski competition with a company called Ski Antarctica.
