Arctowski Station

Time to say good-bye to Antarctica for this voyage! This morning we performed our last landing before heading out into the Drake Passage. We visited Arctowski, a busy Polish research station. On the beaches nearby, many elephant seals were hauled out, and we got to see Chinstrap-, Adelie- and Gentoo penguins again.

The pictures of the day were taken by Margaret Byford and Helgard and Oliver Gimm.
