Antarctica is a land of extremes: it is the coldest and driest continent on Earth and has the highest average elevation. As the fifth largest continent in the world, Antartica is also the most Southern, overlying the “South Pole”. Scarcely touched by humans, the frozen land boasts breathtaking scenery, broken by only a handful of scientific bases and a “permanent” population of scientists numbering only a few thousand. Visitors to Antarctica generally must brave rough sea crossings aboard ice-strengthened vessels, but those who do are rewarded with amazing scenery and tremendous and unique wildlife.

The primary destinations for those visiting Antarctica will either be a research base (for those working on the frozen continent) or the Antarctic Peninsula or Ross Sea area (for those visiting by ship). Other destinations are reachable only by those blessed with extreme motivation and (most importantly) funding.

South Pole — needs no introduction
Southern pole of inaccessibility — the furthest place in Antarctica from the Southern Sea (in other words the hardest place to get to in the world), home to an abandoned Soviet station, which although covered by snow, still bears a visible gold Lenin bust sprouting from the snow and facing Moscow (if you can find a way inside the building, then there’s a golden visitor book to sign)
Mount Erebus — world’s southernmost active volcano, on Ross Island right next to ~Mount Terror!~
Anver Island / Anvord Bay — if any part of Antarctica is “touristy,” this is it, home to Palmer Station (U.S.), the museum at Port Lockroy, Cuverville Island, and the only two cruise ship stops on the continent: Paradise Bay and Neko Harbor
South Shetland Islands — another set of major attractions on the Antarctic Peninsula cruise ship circuit, including: penguins and hot springs at Deception Island, Hannah Point, Half Moon Island, Aitcho Islands, Artigas Base (Uruguay), and the ever friendly Polish researchers at Arctowski Station
McMurdo Sound — McMurdo Station (USA) and Scott Base (New Zealand) on the mainland near Ross Island
Mawson’s Huts — the small encampment of Sir Douglas Mawson’s ill-fated Australian Antarctic Expedition, of which he was the sole survivor, at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay

    A question to scientist who don't believe in Allah. Do you still think that this all is just an accident?

    Some of the most beautiful scenery. My whole being wants to experience it.

  4. orangesheepdog says:

    Am I the only person who finds this frozen wasteland so goddamn interesting?

  5. The humans and penguins enjoy Antarctica. Hopefully the blacks are not able to adapt to its cold.

    se eu pudesse quando morresse mandava me cremar e jogar as cinzas na Antártida

  7. Tim Hallas says:

    It doesn't look like an ice wall to me. I see land everywhere. I'd have to say that's a continent.

  8. need some sort of mapping instrument as it sails around the shore so the flattards can match it up to a globe map shape as i doubt they would believe it even in front of them… would the machine used be a lie too… any excuse

    It's amazing and beautiful, that icy landscape.
    I wonder what the black rocks are made of? Is it coal, graphite or a kind of dolomite, limestone?

  10. hongry life says:

    I see that there is a lot of light around there even when the sun is almost below the horizon.
    Interesting and looks great and is still good for perfectly lit 3D pictures as I see 🙂

    Such a peaceful place and you had to ruin it with your Metal type shitty Background Music.

  12. Las Forgetme says:

    This place is full of frequency, or something, vibration, you can see it in the air, shimmering, and where did that seagull
    go at 5:21, it disappeared. It looks ancient. Silent.

    Flat earthers are paranoid schizophrenics.
