West Point is one of the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean. With a more rugged lifestyle than the military school of the same name, this small island has a stark beauty. Soaring tufts of tussock grass - some nearly six feet tall provide a sheltering habitat for rockhopper and Magellanic penguins and a large albatross colony.

Saunders Island is located on the northwestern region of the Falkland Islands. The highest point is Mount Richards which is 1,499 ft. high. It consists of three peninsulas linked by a narrow new. The neck is approximately one hours drive and it is isolated for a prime wildlife viewing.

Port Stanley is the only town on the Falkland Islands, and though it has little more than 1,200 residents, it contains half of the islands' population. There are 700,000 sheep, and a wonderful assortment of sea birds and elephant seals.

When the Endurance was crushed by the ice of the Weddell Sea, it is on Elephant Island in the South Shetlands that Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew sought refuge, floating on three small boats through mammoth icebergs and landing between steep cliffs. For 105 days, 22 members of the crew endured hardship as Shackleton pressed forth on a harrowing search for help. Here, expedition photographer, Frank Hurley, took his striking photo of the crew waving at Shackleton as he set off.

Antarctic Sound also know as, Iceberg Alley, is accompanied my views that can only be described as amazing. Huge open skies, enormous icebergs, low clouds, sudden weather changes and constant surprises from the hugely abundant wildlife you see will keep you in a constant state of awe. Travellers will discover colonies of Adelie penguins, and ice floes also provide a floating resting spot for various seals.

Antarctic Peninsula

The Antarctic Peninsula thrusts out past the Antarctic Circle, lunging vainly towards the Andes, across the infamous Drake Passage. As far as the Antarctic is concerned, the peninsula is the most densely populated location on the continent, sprinkled with vast research bases and minute outposts alike. At the height of the summer season, the human population numbers over 3,000 - not counting tourists. That figure shrinks to less than 1,000 during the intensely chilly winter.
