Petermann Island is a small island just 1 km long, lying off Graham Land on the Antarctic Peninsula, and 10 km north of the Ukrainian research base on Galindez Island. The Antarctic Circle is still 155 km to the south of Petermann Island. An ice-cap covers part of the NW end of the island and a crevassed permanent ice-slope largely covers the southern end of the island. Stoney bays indent its coastline, with nearly continuous rocky outcrops along the shore. The island lies south of the frequently visited Lemaire Channel, as far south as cruise ships venture. It rises to 150m.

The island was discovered by a German expedition of 1873-74, and has since attracted explorers and researchers from France, Britain, Argentina and Ukraine. For those who are interested in unusual names, a French expedition in 1909 named a port on the island Port Circumcision, which served as a base for their ship Pourquoi-Pas? (Why-Not?) Remaining on the island are a cairn, Argentine refuge hut of 1955, and a cross commemorating three members of a British survey team in 1982.

The island is an important bird area, attracting Adélie penguins, blue-eyed shags, Wilson’s storm petrels, snowey sheathbills and south polar skuas. It is also home to the world's southernmost colony of gentoo penguins. The ice-free areas are covered by mosses, algae and lichens. Only small explorer ships come to this region. As with all sites in Antarctica, no more than 100 visitors are allowed on shore at a time, and every 20 persons have a guide who knows the restricted areas and historic sites.
