Prepare for jagged mountain peaks clad in glaciers which flow to the sea or crash from hundreds of feet in the air to the waters below. With its sudden weather changes and an astonishing variety of wildlife, it is regarded by many visitors as being one of the most beautiful places on earth.
On beaches and ice flows, fur, crab eater, leopard, and Weddell seal can be seen in abundance. In the southern summer, as the ice recedes from the peninsula’s north-west coast, seabirds such as petrel, skua, and four species of penguin come to breed.
The Lemaire Channel is the most famous and visually stunning place along the peninsula. Enormous sheer cliffs plunge straight into the sea, and the picturesque ice covered islands to the south offer the opportunity to disembark from your ship and step into this spectacular winter wilderness.
The Peninsula is a serene and beautiful place where you will feel like an intruder into another world, a world where few tourists have ventured before you.
