The landscapes in the Antarctic Peninsula are spectacular, breath-taking, and mind-boggling. Large icebergs rear up against the horizon in a thousand different shapes and forms, whilst chunks of broken pack ice dot the water; inland, a sweeping ice-cap masks mountains and fills trenches, binding together a continent that is about the same size as Africa.
The peninsula is home to an extraordinary array of wildlife: five species of seal including the Weddell seal, the predatory Leopard seal, and the Crabeater seal, massive penguin rookeries, a significant number of whale species and a wide variety of seabirds, including albatross, petrels, shearwaters and skuas.
