Antarctica

Antartica is Earth’s southernmost continent and it contains the geographic South Pole and is situated in the Antartic region of the Southern Hemisphere surrounded by the southern ocean. Nearly twice the size of Australia, Antartica is the fifth largest continent. About 98% of the continent is covered by ice that averages 1.9 kms in thickness that extends all but the northernmost reaches of the Antartic peninsula. It is the coldest, driest and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all continents. Anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 people reside throughout the year at research stations scattered across the continent. Antartica is noted as the last region on earth in recorded history to be discovered, unseen until 1820, when a Russian expedition sighted the Fimbul Ice shelf. The continent remained in isolation for the rest of the 19th century, until in 1895 the first conducted landing was confirmed by a team of Norwegians.
Scarcely touched by humans, the frozen land of Antartica boasts of breathtaking scenery, broken by only a handful scientific bases and a “permanent” population of scientists numbering only a few thousands. Visitors to Antartica generally must brave rough sea crossings aboard ice strengthened vessels, but those who do are rewarded with amazing scenery, like nowhere else in the world, and unique wild life. The primary destinations for those visiting Antartica will either be a research base (for those working on the frozen continent) or the Antartic Peninsula or Ross Sea (for those visting by ship).

Antartic Peninsula - Antartica’s principal destination nearest to Tierra del Fuego, with the impressive topography of the Antartic Andes, island hot springs, the continent’s densest concentration of research stations. South Shetlands Islands is a major attraction on the Antartic Peninsula cruise ship circuit, including penguins and hot springs at Deception Island, Hannah Point, Half Moon Island, Aitcho Islands and the ever friendly Polish researchers at Arctowski Station.
East Antartica - The Eastern Hemisphere’s vast icy desert wasteland that makes up most of the continent is probably the least well known to tourists, but there are few interesting destinations, including Mawson’s Huts ( the small encampment of Sir Douglas Mason’s ill fated Australian Antartic expedition, of which he was the sole survivor, at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay), and the Southern Pole of Inaccessibility – which is the hardest place to get to in the world. This is home to an abandoned Soviet station, which though covered by snow, still bears a visible gold bust of Lenin sprouting from the snow and facing Moscow. If you can find a way to get inside the building, there is a golden visitor book to sign.
Ross Sea - The principal destination for cruise ships leaving Australia and New Zealand has some of Antartica’s most impressive sights around volcanic Ross Island and the huge Transantartic Mountain chain. World’s southern most active volcano Mount Erebus is located on Ross Island. The McMurdo Station (USA) and Scott Base (New Zealand) are situated on the the mainland near the Ross Island.
South Pole - Unlike its Northern cousin, the South Pole sits upon stationary ground, and therefore supports a permanent research station and a ceremonial “pole”.
West Antartica - With the exception of Antartic Peninsula, West Antartica is barren and empty, even of research stations (except for the Brunt Ice Shelf). But it does contain the continent’s highest and lowest points, the former of which you can climb on a guided expedition.
