Video: Take a Timelapse Cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula

Most of us won’t have the opportunity to visit Antartica ourselves, so we have to find alternate means of visiting that incredibly beautiful place. This video was shot by Andrew Peacock, a medical doctor (and fantastic photographer) who teaches expedition medicine courses. Andrew recently wrapped up just such a course aboard the National Geographic Explorer, a ship operated by Lindblad Expeditions. While he was aboard the Explorer the vessel completed a cruise through the Lemaire Channel, an 11 km (6.8 mile) passage that is just 1600 meters wide at its narrowest point. This leg of his Antarctic journey made for a scenic route, which Andrew captured in timelapse. As you’ll see below, this amazing part of the world is simply too beautiful for words.

Thanks to Andrew for sharing this with us. I hope everyone enjoys it.
