Antarctica Things to Do: 527 reviews and 1,073 photos

We were lucky to pass Gerlache Straight in great sunshine and I stood out on deck for hours, watching all of the great icebergs passing by. This was certainly one of the highlights of my cruise onboard of the "Bark Europa" and it was not easy which 5 of all of the hundreds of photos that I had made to choose for this tip.
In a great day like this you should by all means wear sunglasses and suncream with a high factor, in the evening my eyes were hurting although I had a polaroid factor with my ordinary glasses, maybe I got too much wind, maybe some of the suncream came into my eyes. I had to go to sleep early and the other day it was OK again.
Most of these pics were taken by my fish-eye-lense with an angle of 180 degrees !
