Antarctica, the “blue continent”, is like no other place on Earth, with its glittering ice, majestic peaks and amazing beauty. Between November and March, an abundance of penguins and many other seabirds including the albatross, arrive on Antarctica to breed, whilst during the summer you can see whales feasting themselves before they head north.
