The Antarctic Peninsula is the most-visited region of Antarctica. This northward-reaching extension of the polar continent reaches within 1000 miles of the southernmost tips of Chile and Argentina. It includes both the landmass of the actual continent of Antarctica, numerous islands, and the ice sheets that extend and connect many of these bodies of land.
The Antarctic Peninsula is almost a mirror image of southern South America.
Because Antarctica is not an easy place to get to, to subsist within or to travel around, this inevitably presented a series of challenges – challenges that remain to this day.
A challenge which fuels the Wanderer to head out and explore the land.
