Marilyn JonesGetting to Antarctica is no easy feat. First there's air travel to Ushuaia, Argentina, the world's southernmost city. From here specially designed cruise ships take passengers across the Drake Passage – the world's most turbulent waters – and finally you arrive in the surreal world of rock, ice and snow.

I traveled to Antarctica with One Ocean Expeditions on a small research vessel that takes on 125 passengers for a handful of excursions every summer from November to March.

Traveling along the northern edge of Antarctica offers all manner of ever-changing scenery. Great mountains and glaciers reflect the summer sunlight against a backdrop of crystal blue skies.
