Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica
What is Paradise Harbour?
Paradise Bay or Harbour is one of the most beautiful and pristine spots in Antarctica. Here, mountains and glaciers reflect off the calm water, and it's the perfect place to soak up the peace and stillness of Antarctica.
It is also one of only two ports used for cruise ships to stop on the continent; the other is Neko Harbour, a stunning area for whale spotting and panoramic views.
