Deception Island

Recommendation by Lemi

One of the most interesting points of Antarctica, Deception Island is the caldera of an active volcano. It was formed when a portion of the rock wall collapsed and the chamber flooded with water. The sand is warmed from beneath the surface, and mist hangs low due to differing temperatures. Entering the inner waters poses a challenge due to what is called Neptune’s Bellows (the narrow opening of this horseshoe-shaped island). Trek through abandoned settlements, observe the undisturbed fauna and take in the sweeping landscape of thrashing waters and unique rock formations. The daring may even take the polar plunge in frigid waters for a bucket list experience!
