"Penguin-highways" Top 5 Page for this destination Antarctica Things to Do Tip by globetrott

Antarctica Things to Do: 515 reviews and 1,047 photos

Penguin-highways are to be found at all places, where large colonies of penguins are living and you will recognize them easily by the grey color in the white snow. Such highways are the most convenient way to reach the ocean and it gets it typical grey color by the penguin-poo. It is best NOT to use such paths for exploring Antarctica, because the small feet of these cute animals will fall into the human footsteps and will have a lot of problems to use it further-on.
When-ever you have to walk across such a penguin-path, fill up your traces again with snow.
Penguins never get agressive, when they start screaming it is mostly to impress their partners or for discussions and disputes among themselves.
