Drones are becoming more and more accessible, but the footage from Swedish filmmaker Kalle Ljung's Antarctica is truly one-of-a-kind. Armed with a GoPro and a DJI Phantom drone, Ljung documented his 16-day exploration in the South Pole to produce this cinematic masterpiece.

The visuals are breathtaking: majestic glaciers, humpback whales, and glistening oceans that give new meaning to the word 'surreal'. Amidst the dramatic scenery, a strong undercurrent of isolation runs through the film; there's not a soul in sight save for Ljung and his team.

If Ljung's film calls forth the adventurer in you, you're in luck. You can explore this untouched region in comfort and style onboard a cruise ship by Silversea or Intrepid Travel.
