Antarctica is the world’s southernmost continent. As a result of its unique location, it is also the coldest, driest, least polluted and least populated. The majority of the landmass is covered by several ice sheets, although the coastal areas are also quite mountainous. Over the past few decades, the continent has become an increasingly popular extreme adventure location with everything from skiing to the South Pole to climbing one of the Seven Summits.
Famous Mountains in Antarctica
Antarctica is home to several different mountain ranges, including the Transantarctic Range that runs through the middle of the continent and the Sentinel Range, on the Western Peninsula. However, Mount Vinson, the continent’s highest peak is the most popular climbing destination.
While not technically as difficult as many other members of the Seven Summits, the harsh conditions and remote location make it one of the toughest to achieve.
