While many people were ringing in 2023 at a party, or in the comforts of their own home under their blankets, Zoey Deutch and best friend Nina Dobrev were soaking in some of the best Mother Nature has to offer in Antartica.
And on Thursday, the Everybody Wants Some!! star, 28, took to her Instagram page to share a slew of photos from their monumental trip that included her beau Jimmy Tatro, 30, as well as Dobrev’s, 34, partner Shaun White, 36.
The group, who toured the continent observing some of the wildlife, didn’t seem to fazed by the cold temperatures, which can fall to a brutal -70 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter.

During their adventure to the ice-covered continent, the two actresses took a helicopter ride, where they touched down on a heliport, amid all the ice chunks and glaciers in the water.
In one photo, Dobrev gave the thumbs up alongside Deutch who flashed a cool and confident look.
Both of them were bundled up in heavy jackets, layered clothing, and hats, as their long locks flowed down over their shoulders.
Deutch would throw in a shout out to her gal pal by writing, ‘Nina,’ along with a white heart emoji at the bottom of the photo.

Worldwide, glaciers cover about 10% of the Earth’s land area; Antarctica accounts for about 85% of this total cover, according to Discovering Antarctica.
It turns out, Antarctica contains 90% of the world’s glacier ice, which is enough ice to raise world sea level by almost 60 metres if it were all to melt.
Deutch just couldn’t get enough of the wildlife, which included posing in front of a slew of penguins congregating on rocks.
‘It was love at frost sight,’ she joked, in a reference to the penguins that seemed to be interested in her presence, especially one in particular that was about 10 feet behind her.

Along with the penguins, there were also a series of images of seals and sea lions playing in the water and on the rocks at the shoreline.
While some of the animals were seen just as they were about to jump in the water, there were others seemingly on the hunt for food, and one or two taking a nap just off from the water.
There was no shortage of beautiful photos of the incredible ice shapes in the water and on land, in which the actress took advantage of by laying on the ground and posing for a series of snaps.
