The Magical Place Which Is Called Union Glacier Camp in Antarctica

Union Glacier Camp in Antarctica

Wes Anderson-esque guide to one of the most fascinating places you can visit, the Union Glacier Camp in Antarctica.

The camp works during the Antarctic summer (November through January) and is stripped down at the end of each season. It is located in the spectacular (and remote) southern Ellsworth Mountains, on Union Glacier. It is only available by air via a naturally occurring blue-ice runway.

Located 1,859 miles (2991 km) from the southern tip of Chile and a short flight from Mount Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica. The South Pole is just over 600 nautical miles (1138 km) away. The camp can hold up to 70 guests in their double occupancy Clam Tents.
