Frozen wonderland of unforgettable adventures

The Antarctic Peninsula extends like an inviting hand, displaying jagged mountain peaks veiled in ice-cold glaciers that birth majestic icebergs into the ocean .

The Antarctic Peninsula features a submerged ridge, the Scotia Ridge, which emerges above sea-level at its northern tip. With an 800km (500 miles) chain of mountains and scattered islands, the peninsula showcases Antarctica's most striking landscapes and diverse wildlife. Prepare for potential sensory overload from the sheer scale of the landscapes you will see here.

There are many exciting destinations around the Antarctic Peninsula including Hope Bay, which proudly hosts the Argentinean Esperanza Base. As a year-round settlement, it offers various amenities like a post office and school, symbolizing humanity's continuous presence in this harsh yet enchanting region.

Paradise Harbour, true to its name, reveals a breathtaking spectacle of diverse wildlife and captivating landscapes. Petrels, cormorants, seals, penguins, and occasionally whales grace the scene, enhancing the natural grandeur of the area. A zodiac cruise in this enchanting haven ranks as one of the most unforgettable experiences during a trip to Antarctica.

Discover Marguerite Bay on the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Admire its ice-covered mountains and witness the enchanting Emperor penguin colony at Dion Islands. Immerse yourself in history with research stations like San Martin on Barry Island (Argentinian) and Rothera & Fossil Bluff on Adelaide and Alexandra Islands (British), dating back to 1951.

The Lemaire Channel, often dubbed one of Antarctica's most stunning and photogenic sights, is a narrow passageway wedged between the Antarctic Peninsula and Booth Island. Its serpentine route presents a navigational challenge, bordered by towering cliffs that create an awe-inspiring corridor for those fortunate enough to traverse it.

Additionally, Port Lockroy is the home of the British Antarctic Survey base, nestled within a natural harbour accessible through the Neumayer Channel. Aside from its picturesque charm, the site houses a post office and a fascinating museum so you can send your loved ones a postcard from one of the most remote post offices in the world!
