Craving an out-of-the-box travel experience? Well, clear your calendar, because the eco-friendly, adventure-focused travel company Intrepid Travel wants to help two lucky travelers discover Antarctica this winter. The company will give away a spot for you and a friend aboard the Ocean Endeavour ship for the "Best of Antarctica" tour, an 11-day expedition around the continent worth $25,000.
The lucky winner and their guest will spend one night in Ushuaia, Argentina (airfare to and from Argentina is not included in the giveaway) before embarking through the icy waters of the infamous Drake Passage, which is known to be one of the world's choppiest passages. Despite the rough waters, if conditions are right, you might be able to spot dolphins, orcas, and albatross.
From there, the bulk of the journey will be spent in the Antarctic Peninsula, where you'll participate in an array of adventures. Explore the rawness of glaciers, mountains, and wildlife, go on Zodiac excursions and experience the calving of icebergs while in the midst of total silence. For additional fees, you can participate in a kayaking trip or take a photography master class (you can't come home without photos for the 'gram, after all!).
After a few days of once-in-a-lifetime adventures, you'll have even more to enjoy onboard the Ocean Endeavour before disembarking in Ushuaia. The ship itself boasts health and wellness facilities comparable to any hotel. Relax in one of the saunas, book a massage, dive into the saltwater pool, or take a yoga class on board.
If this sounds like your dream adventure, be sure to enter here between now and August 23rd. If you're lucky enough to win, you'll need to book your trip by September 30th for your expedition, which will leave on December 29th. Read the official contest rules here.
