Antarctica Ice. That’s the real star of Antarctica.

The penguins are adorable, the seals are spectacular and the whales have that “Wow Factor” that take your breath away when they pop up beside your zodiac. They could all easily be the stars of Antarctica but they’re not. The real star of Antarctica?


We couldn’t get enough of looking at the different hues in the ice. The amazing ice bergs make you stand in wonder. Listening to ice break off of thousand year of glaciers from the seat of a kayak is overwhelming and catching seals sleeping on ice flows in the middle of the Antarctic Peninsula is astounding. Check it out for yourself and decide if Antarctica Ice is the star of the seventh continent or not.

    These are breathtakingly gorgeous and the landscape seems otherworldly! I can’t imagine getting used to seeing so much ice in one place. I hope to travel there someday and have some icy adventures of my own!

      Glad we could bring back some memories for you. We love reliving amazing travels through photos. It’s true icebergs definitely look best in blue, but this black and white did turn out ok didn’t it:)

    These are simply gorgeous. I haven’t been to the Antarctic yet but I have been to the Arctic and there is just something fascinating about the ice on the frozen parts of our planet few of us are lucky to see.
