It rains more than you know in parts of Antarctica
Or more poetically, the Crystal Desert. It is stunning with countless landscapes that constantly are altered by the ever fast changing weather conditions you experience when adventuring the Antarctic Peninsula. Antarctica is known as the coldest, driest & windiest continent on earth; however, on the peninsula it actually rains, snows and hails quite consistently even during its summer months.
The previous statement refers to the overall average of the entire continent, which is a massive chunk of land and well.. ice too; however, the coastal region of Antarctica weather and the precipitation amounts are far, far higher than what we consider to be a dry region. This is one thing a lot of people first notice when they reach the peninsula for the first time, especially, when a rain storm hits with intensity. One thing is for sure though is that the peninsula landscape is breathtaking no matter if the sun is shining, the snow is falling or the overcast skies darkening the ever present glaciers
