Ant­arc­tic pan­ora­ma: Cape Ada­re

The­re is a new pan­ora­ma tour (vir­tu­al tour) from Ant­arc­ti­ca, name­ly from Cape Ada­re in the Ross Sea. Cape Ada­re is one of the most famous, but rare­ly visi­ted pla­ces in Ant­arc­ti­ca: in 1895, it was the site of the first well-docu­men­ted lan­ding on the con­ti­nent, and in 1899 it was the site of the very first win­te­ring on the con­ti­nent, by an expe­di­ti­on led by Kars­ten Borch­g­re­vink. The­se sto­ries are short­ly sum­ma­ri­zed in the new pan­ora­ma tour, and so is the visit of the nort­hern par­ty under Camp­bell during Robert F. Scott’s final expe­di­ti­on with Ter­ra Nova.

The pan­ora­ma tour docu­ments the his­to­ric huts at Cape Ada­re and gives impres­si­ons of the ama­zing sce­ne­ry of the place at the nort­hern­most end of Vic­to­ria Land, being part of the famous Tran­s­ant­arc­tic Moun­tains. Cape Ada­re is also home to the lar­gest colo­ny of Adé­lie pen­gu­ins in Ant­arc­ti­ca, which means in the world.

In ear­ly Febru­a­ry, I was lucky to spend a rare good wea­ther day at Cape Ada­re. On this occa­si­on, I shot the pan­ora­mas which are now assem­bled to this new pan­ora­ma / vir­tu­al tour (click here to get to the tour). Enjoy a vir­tu­al trip to Cape Ada­re!
