Overview

Antarctic Cruise - The Peninsula offers the most dramatic scenery and biggest variety of wildlife in Antarctica. Visitors are easily overcome by sensory overload by the huge amount of ice-bergs, glaciers, high mountains and the abundant and tame wildlife. In the southern summer the large ice-free areas at the peninsula’s north-west coast provide breeding grounds for large numbers of seabirds such as petrels, skuas and four species of penguins. On beaches and ice-flows you will encounter, Fur Seals, Crabeater Seals, ferocious Leopard Seals and friendly Weddell Seals. In the waters around the Peninsula Fin Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales and Killer Whales are common.
