Paradise Harbor
tips and insights


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.

Tranquil reflections

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.

Penguin colonies

Both the chintrap and gentoo penguins have colonies in the area.
