Secrets you don’t see on Antarctica Cruises…

Antarctica cruises law enforcement

If you ever went on an Antarctica Cruise or have seen pictures of Penguins on Antarctica expeditions on TV, you see they frequently line up one Antarctic penguin behind the other Antarctic penguin. Close encounters on an Antarctica cruise with an icebreaker will bring you next to these truly permanent visitors of Antarctica and like any other animals, they will have walked a trail in the ice. And like most people, also the penguins from Antarctica will stay in line as much as possible…

Enough about Antarctica cruises, you can find more about Antarctica cruises here.

Below: the secrets you don’t see on Antarctica cruises… 🙂

How cold does it get on Antarctica?

Antarctica travel advice: always bring lip balm!

If you travel to Antarctica, be aware that there are no trees to shelter: so if there is an Antarctic wind blowing, it will be cold and dry. This Antarctic winds can dry out your skin very easily, especially your lips, so do bring lip balm if you plan a cruise to Antarctica.

For now, enjoy the Antarctic fun below 🙂

Bush attacked by Antarctic Penguins?

The march of the Antarctica penguins…  

Was Bush in Antarctica? Not really, it was more like the Antarctica penguins took the "March of the penguins" way to literal by marching all the way from the south pole to Bush…

All set aside, Bush has more hot topics on his mind than cold Antarctica…

Maybe somebody was trying to give President Bush a cold welcome by sending in troops of Antarctica penguins… Quite harmless 🙂

Oil in Antarctica?

A funny look towards Antarctic penguins from the eyes of an Al Jazheera cartoonist.

This is a nice twist to the western cartoons depicting penguins as nuns… 🙂

Anyway, since there is no (oil)mining allowed on the South Pole, nor are there land-claims possible on Antarctica: this cartoon is pure fiction.

Striped Iceberg

Admire this beautifully coloured striped iceberg pictures taken taken several hundred miles north of the Antarctic.


Not all icebergs are white. Most icebergs appear white as a result of the tiny bubbles trapped within them which reflect light in every direction.


Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes lined with stripes. The striped iceberg photos below were taken by Norwegian sailor Oyvind Tangen from aboard a research vessel:

  • around 1,700miles south of Cape Town and
  • 660miles north of the Antarctic.

How do the green, blue, brown colors get into these amazing striped icebergs in Antarctica?


  • green stripes are created by the freezing of algae-rich Antarctic sea water. When icebergs falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside of the iceberg. If this sea water is rich in algae, the new frozen layer will form a green stripe.
  • icebergs with stripes
    blue layers in icebergs with stripes are formed when iceberg layers melt and refreeze quickly. Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.


  • black, brown and yellow are created by sediment collected by the ice when it moves down a hillside towards the sea.


mint humbugThe first striped iceberg Oyvind Tangen spotted is about 150ft long and 30ft high and reminded him of a striped candy -a humbug- he bought as a child. Hence the name "humbug iceberg" was born.
