This very rarely visited island was named for its two striking peaks or 'horns' and is the nesting site for some 10,000 pairs of Adelie penguins. If weather conditions permit, you may walk up a scree slope to the top of the island's western peak. A few hundred meters in height, the summit provides superb views into Erebus and Terror Gulf. On the upper slopes, you may even see nesting snow petrels and Wilson's storm petrels. For those who are less active, the comings and goings of penguins on the beach and the attendant skua population provide endless fascination. There are often large numbers of grounded icebergs offshore.
