- Off the beaten track
Few sights I've visited have impressed me as much as these immense expanses of water and ice did. I arrived here from the city of Ushuaïa onboard a boat taking a group of tourists to the site. It's quite an expensive trip, but the amazing things that await you at the other end make it a price worth paying.
I'll never forget the pristine purity of this sparse landscape at the very edge of the world: the splendour of the raw, wild nature here. I particularly enjoyed sailing amongst the hundreds of islets there are around the peninsula, skirting the edge of the ice field, and stopping to trace the steps of the first explorers. I also had the opportunity to see seals, elephant seals, penguins and humpback whales, proving that a rich variety of life exists even in the most hostile environments to man.
