Antarctica and The Arctic Ocean

Antarctica is the coldest, driest and windiest continent. There is little precipitation, except at the coasts, so the interior of the continent is technically the largest desert in the world.
There are no permanent human residents and Antarctica never had an indigenous population. Only cold-adapted plants and animals survive there, including penguins, fur seals, mosses, lichens, and algae.

Tourism in the Antarctic is mainly by around 20 vessels carrying 45 to 280 passengers each.
