Orne Harbour & Port Lockroy

Dec 22, 2017 - National Geographic Explorer

Our first landing of the morning was a continental landing at the spectacular Orne Harbour, home to the dramatic Vidbol Glacier and a chinstrap penguin colony. We also took the opportunity to zodiac cruise around this wonderful location and were rewarded with two whale encounters. In the afternoon, we called in to the historic British base at Port Lockroy and explored the fascinating stories behind this unique site.
