Things to Know

Please note this may not be penguin-perfect for every couple. Being on the ice shelf is:

  • A slippery slope, so stable ice-worthy shoes are needed
  • Cold enough to have snow, with an air temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Limited to 30 minutes

    For your safety, touching the penguins is not allowed.
