Snow Hill Island penguin rookery

The rookery of emperor penguins on the ice shelf tucked beyond SnowHillIslandis Antarctic wildlife safari-ing at its best. A few days slow cruising the massive bergs of the Peninsula before breaking through the sea pack near Snow Hill will get you in the right area for the largest, most colourful penguins on the planet, but the onboard chopper will get you even closer: within a few kilometres walking distance. Watch adults and fledglings huddle and cavort and belly slide across their ice and you’ll have a camera full of fine pics in minutes to join others of the spectacular scenery.
