  • Icebergs

    Icebergs

    Antarctica is a land of snow and ice and its giant glaciers and ice shelves create icebergs of all shapes and sizes. Your first sight of Antarctica is likely to be the huge tabular icebergs that have broken off and due to their size drift north before finally melting away. The peninsula itself will present you with a plethora of icebergs or all shapes and sizes from big lumps of ice freshly broken off a glacier to smaller bergs that have been carved and sculpted by the waves and melting into amazing shapes.
