Antarctic Peninsula: A Visitor's Guide is the essential companion for anyone planning to visit this unique place.
Focusing on the geography and physical phenomena of this remote region, it contains vital information visitors will need before and during their trip, including the variations in climate and weather, geographical statistics, human activity and the location of research stations, the different types of icebergs to be seen and more.
