Only 50,000 tourists travel to Antarctica each year. To put that in perspective, 85 million travel to France. Bucket lists could change that, but still, Antarctica’s tourist crowd will likely remain tiny. Many who have traveled to Antarctica say their trip was the best vacation they’ve ever taken. That’s quite a statement when you consider that anyone who visits Antarctica has probably already been to many of the world’s other incredible destinations. Here are some of the reasons why people consider Antarctica the ultimate.

The Amazon is a river of many rivers stretching almost coast to coast across the northern regions of South America. The seventeen longest of the Amazon's 1,100 tributaries flow more than a thousand miles. Two of its tributaries, the Negro and the Madeira, are the fifth and sixth largest rivers in the world by volume.
