Now we can say that we had walked on Antarctic mainland. Neko Harbor, named after a ship that anchored there in the early 1900´s, is an area where Gentoo penguins breed during the summer season.
We really felt Antarctic weather during the landing in Neko: snowy and windy.

During the afternoon we sailed through the narrow Errera Channel to reach Cuverville Island, where one of the largest Gentoo rookery takes place. We are not tired of seeing penguins every day!

After a small walk up a hill, the scenic of the glaciers and icebergs was fascinating! The sun was shining for the entire landing time.
