The setting is a photographer's dream. Some say it is Antarctica's most beautiful place. The name, Paradise Harbor, was well chosen because of the setting's serene ambiance.
This is a marvelous spot for catching the sight of glacial calving. This defines the moment when a monstrous chunk of ice breaks off the facade of a glacier and dramatically crashes into the sea to become an iceberg.
When the glaciers are not calving icebergs, the waters can be peacefully smooth, creating a visual paradise. The surrounding glaciers and snow covered peaks are mirrored on the water.
Both the chintrap and gentoo penguins have colonies in the area.
