The wild and remote east coast of the Peninsula is found in the Weddell Sea, known for its stunning scenery of giant tabular icebergs and vast sea ice. This ice-choked sea was made famous by the saga of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men from the Endurance expedition. This area is also the realm of the Emperor penguin , the largest of the 17 penguin species and the most vividly coloured.
Also found here is Paulet Island - home to one of the Peninsula’s largest penguin rookeries, Snow Hill Island - the base for the Heroic Age Nordenskjold expedition and Seymour Island - where scientists are still finding fossils of giant penguins.
