Welcome to Ross Sea

Antarctica’s largest modern-day outpost, McMurdo Station, sits alongside diminutive, eco-friendly Scott Base, but the region’s scree-covered shores and enormous Ross Ice Shelf are mostly the domain of Weddell seals and Adélie and emperor penguins. The steaming volcano, Mt Erebus, and the mysterious and otherworldly Dry Valleys are two additional prizes won by travelers persistent and fortunate enough to reach this relatively remote part of Antarctica.
