Welcome to South Pole


Known to Polies simply as ‘Pole,’ the South Pole was, just a few decades ago, off-limits to all but the US government program’s scientists and support personnel. The only exceptions were a small number of other countries’ government-sponsored expeditions that traversed the plateau from the coast, and well-financed adventurers who passed through on private expeditions to cross the continent by ski or dog team. Today, ‘ordinary’ tourists can make the trip, though the cost is significant and not many stay more than a few hours.
