Antarctic Peninsula holidays

Pancake Ice, Antarctica Peninsula
Jo Cooper

The Antarctic Peninsula is the northernmost part of mainland Antarctica, and almost the only part of that continent that extends outside the Antarctic Circle. Teeming with wildlife, the Peninsula features hundreds of offshore islands and is one of Antarctica’s richest breeding grounds for seabirds, seals and penguins.

The Peninsula is the most easily accessible region of Antarctica, reached from South America either by air or, more commonly, on a two day sea crossing over the Drake Passage. Its mountainous landscape is attributed to a continuation of the majestic Andes of South America, with the two continents being linked via a sub-marine chain of peaks. The soaring mountains of the Antarctic Peninsula are peppered with immense glaciers, which flow into the Larsen Ice Shelf.

Due to its accessibility and relatively mild climate, the Antarctic Peninsula has the highest concentration of research stations on the continent. It is also the region of Antarctica most often visited by tourist ships, which are rewarded with spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife.
