The Lemaire Channel is an 11 kilometre strait off Antarctica leading to a jigsaw of jewel like islands.
Filled with ice-bergs and hemmed in by steep glacial cliffs, the passage is not only extremely scenic, but the protected waters are usually as still as a lake, creating wonderful reflections of the surrounding landscape.
Flowing between Kiev Peninsula and the mainland’s Graham Land and the 3,000 metre cliffs of Booth Channel, the Lemaire Channel is one of Antarctica’s top destinations and has been nicknamed ‘Kodak Gap.’
Just 1,600 metres wide at its narrowest point, passing through the channel makes for an unforgettable journey, upon which orca or humpback whales may be seen.
