While all the other six continents in the world seem to be filled with tourists year-round, Antarctica is not usually considered a travel destination. However, the icy continent has so much to offer, such as beautiful blue glaciers, fascinating active volcanoes, and 360-degree views of completely untouched snow. Here are some views you cannot miss while visiting Antarctica.

This minor Antarctic island is only accessible by sea or helicopter, as its 171-hectare surface does not include an airport. Half Moon Island is home to very diverse fauna and flora. The most common animals on the volcanic land are birds such as south polar skuas, chinstrap penguins, and Antarctic terns.
Discovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the French Antarctic Expedition, Dorian Bay is a cove on the northwest of Wiencke Island. Nowadays, the Damoy Hut is listed as a Historic Site and is maintained by the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust.
