The best Antarctica Instagram spotsHow do these rankings work?

1. Mount Vinson

Antarctica’s highest mountain, Vinson Massif is an unforgettable climb. One of the renowned “Seven Summits” (the highest mountains in each of the seven continents), the crystal clear glaciers and white snow you’ll see here is incredible.

2. Port Lockroy

Port Lockroy is a charming sheltered harbour off the coast of Wiencke Island. There’s a penguin colony on the island, and various wooden huts with a rich history.

There’s also a fantastic museum and post office operated by the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust.

3. The Drake Passage

The Drake Passage or Mar de Hoces—Sea of Hoces—is the body of water between South America’s Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica.

It’s one of the roughest sea crossings in the world, yet one that passengers on Antarctica cruises look forward to the most. Pop a seasickness tablet, roll with the waves and keep an eye out for humpback whales.

4. Deception Island

While this island looks normal from the outside, it’s actually in a ring-shape, hence the name ‘Deception Island’.

There’s a massive penguin colony here, plus hot glacier springs that you can dip into to heat yourself up in the biting Arctic cold.

5. The South Pole

You can’t go to Antartica and not visit the southernmost point on the surface of the Earth.

Antarctica is the coldest and driest place on the globe, and the South Pole is one of the most isolated spots you’ll ever see. Still, it’s great fun here as the resident scientists make the most of it.

You can also boast that you’ve run around the world after circling the pole.

6. Vernadsky Research Base

The only bar in all of Antarctica is found at this Ukrainian research base. The rustic bar features photos of various explorers and is a lively place to spend an evening.

FYI, vodka is free to any woman willing to donate her underwear to be displayed in the bar. We think we’d rather just pay the $3.

7. Blood Falls

This unique five-story, blood-red waterfall flowing from the Taylor Glacier is one of the strangest natural sights in the world. The water gets its colour due to oxidized iron in brine saltwater.

The deep-red of the water staining the pure white snow makes for an insane Antarctica Instagram photo.
