Barrientos Island – Aitcho Islands

Is located at 62°24S, 59°47’W. Is between Robert and Greenwich islands, in South Shetland Islands.

Was my first landing in 2013 expedition. We had great weather when we crossed the Drake Passage. That’s give us time enough to visit this place.

This site was discovered in 1936. There we found a colony of gentoo and chinstrap penguins with their chicks. Also giant petrels, skuas and snowy sheathbills.
