There is a reason people go to such lengths to visit Antarctica, and its abundance of seals, whales, penguins, and other near-limitless seabirds are just part of the polar story.
But even if you strike these remarkable surroundings from the list, you still have a wealth of activities that make Antarctica more than value the trip: mountaineering, kayaking, SUP boards, camping, scuba diving, and more.
Here are some of the best things to do:
Peruse penguins and colossal penguin colonies
Penguins and penguin colonies can be found in many locations around Antarctica, but there are few key places that they are top found.
One of the tops among them is the emperor penguin colony at Snow Hill Island.
Snow Hill Island is placed in the Weddell sea and is seldom visited since it is generally locked in ice, approaching by even ice-strengthened vessels impossible.
Further, the Antarctic Peninsula is the best location to spot penguins, mainly Chinstraps, and Adelies, gentoos. Actually, Adelies live in Antarctica, unlike other penguin species.
Cruise the spectacular Ross Sea
Pendleton strait is an occasional landing place that can afford you a visit to the Southern tip of Renaud Island if sea ice permits it.
This Antarctic attraction is house to Adelie penguins as well as remarkable blue-white icebergs.
The Amundsen Sea is another big Antarctic attraction. There you can find emperor penguins, groups of seals lounging on the ice floes, possible orcas and minke whale spouting along the ice edge, and various species of marine petrels.
Duse Bay is another Antarctica attraction.
A helicopter flight may deposit you on a rocky hillock near an old refuge hut overlooking this wonderful bay.
Seymour Island is also a perfect place to view fossils, sedimentary rock, and vast Antarctic views.
