"The Glacier of Paradise Bay" Top 5 Page for this destination Antarctica Things to Do Tip by globetrott

Antarctica Things to Do: 514 reviews and 1,042 photos

On our Zodiak-Tour through Skontorp Cove / Paradise Bay we also got quite close to the glacier and it was fascinating to see all of the snow and ice waiting to fall into the water and become an Iceberg, floating through Antarctical waters. Take a look at my photos and get an idea how this snow and ice was set togeather with maybe some ordinary snowing first, then maybe a bit of melting before freezing again and getting some crispy edges and layers, then the big irregular cubes of an averlanche maybe, followed by ashes of an eruption of the closeby vulcano on Deception Island etc.
