Antarctica travel guide

Antarctica - East Antarctica & The South Pole (Chapter)

5th Edition Nov 2012

This is the East Antarctica & the South Pole chapter from Lonely Planet’s Antarctica guidebook.

Severe and spectacular, East Antarctica is the land of the polar plateau and the continent’s coldest temperatures. The icebound coast, with its massive ice shelves, is broken up by the occasional ice-free oasis, or teeming seabird or emperor penguin colonies. Only a small number of research stations are scattered along these difficult-to-reach shores, and visitors are so extraordinary that they are generally welcomed with open arms. Inland East Antarctica, the heart of the ice cap, is only rarely visited by tourists. Several important research stations take advantage of the vast, thick ice sheet and its high, dry, freezing conditions: perfect for astronomy and physics.
