Paulet Is, Antarctica

Paulet Island is a small island located off Dundee Island in the Graham Land Peninsula, Antarctica. It is composed of lava flows capped by a cinder cone with a small summit crater. Geothermal heat keeps parts of the island ice-free, and the presence of such heat suggests that it was last active within the last 1,000 years.

At Paulet Island there are thousands of Adelie penguins, and visitors can see the remains of the stone hut where members of the stranded crew from the sunken Swedish ship Antarctic, spent a terrible winter until their rescue in 1903.
