South Pole

Set foot at the bottom of the world, 90 degrees South

Expeditions to the South Pole

The South Pole is situated on the Antarctic continent, at the bottom of the world, 90 degrees south. The area surrounding the South Pole is a desolate and barren landscape, with ice stretching for miles in every direction. Adventurers and explorers tried to get there in a race for fame and glory, many failed their expedition. The first man who reached the South Pole after an almost flawless expedition, was Roald Amundsen. Nowadays, it is a lot easier to reach the Geographical South Pole.

In order to visit the South Pole, most visitors stay in a comfortable base camp on the Antarctic continent. From there, a special airplane flies to the most southern point of the world. Others may choose to make it themselves more difficult, by skiing the last degree, 60 nautical miles (111 km). The reward after reaching the geographical South Pole by skiing, is overwhelming and indescribable.

If you have ever seen ‘March of the Penguins’, you know where you can expect to see those extraordinary creatures. The Emperor penguins only live on the seventh continent, Antarctica. Combine your expedition to the South Pole with a visit to the Emperor penguin colony, an exclusive wildlife experience.

Visiting the South Pole is a challenging endeavor, typically requiring extensive planning and logistics due to its remote location and harsh climate. However, for those who undertake the journey, it offers a unique opportunity to experience one of the most isolated and inhospitable places on the planet.
