Here are some interesting Antarctica facts:  The seasons in Antarctica are the opposite of the seasons in the Northern hemisphere–summer is October through February, and winter is March through September.  Also, tourists to Antarctica generally visit the Antarctic Peninsula (sometimes referred to as the “Banana Belt”), where the climate is mild in comparison with the rest of the continent.

Antarctic Cruises include stops in South America, Drake Passage, and the Falkland Islands.
