Antarctica, Antarctic Peninsula, Brief Summary

Antarctic Peninsula brief summary. The Antarctic Peninsula was surprisingly quiet this year, with only two expeditions attempting mountain objectives. During November and December the Omega Foundation conducted its fifth Antarctic expedition in as many years, this time on Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands. Later, in January, a group of Israeli and Palestinian adventurers sailed down the Peninsula to make a first ascent in the name of peace.
