On a visit to Antartica to watch the emperor penguins

Emperor penguins and their chicks.

Few years the ship Kapitan Khlebnikov was the only tourist vessel on which people can watch penguins in their natural habitat.

For the explorers in Antarctica this year may be the last, when they will be able to delve into the region to watch the penguins in their natural habitat.


Kapitan Khlebnikov – a Russian icebreaker in which 100 lucky people can see the newborn penguins. Usually, the journey begins in October, which gives tourists the opportunity to see the chicks when they are only two months old.
