Trip overview

 

Moscow - Punta Arenas (Chile) - Patriot Hills (Antarctica) - South Pole - Patriot Hills - Punta Arenas - Moscow

 

The South Pole, also known as the Geographic South Pole  is one of the two points where the Earth's axis of rotation intersects its surface. It is the southernmost point on the surface of the Earth and lies on the opposite side of the Earth from the North Pole. Situated on the continent of Antarctica, it is the site of the United States Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, which was established in 1956 and has been permanently staffed since that year. In our program we visit so-called the Ceremonial South Pole, it is an area set aside for photo opportunities at the South Pole Station. It is located a short distance from the Geographic South Pole, and consists of a metallic sphere on a plinth, surrounded by the flags of the Antarctic Treaty signatory states.
