In 1911, Shackleton’s daring race to the South Pole unveiled the last uncharted frontier on Earth: the unexplored wilderness of Antarctica. Shrouded in mystery, it holds many secrets. This land of extremes conceals a trove of wonders within its icy embrace. Bloody red waterfalls, ancient fossils, peculiar natural phenomena, and incredible creatures. A world beneath the ice, from salty underground lakes to a vast mountain range hidden below.

This frozen continent is one and a half times the size of the United States, of which 99 per cent is covered in ice. The Southern Ocean is the fourth largest in the world, surrounding Antarctica. It is here that the Metis Polar Station sits. Three buildings form the primary research facility. A mile away, two smaller huts long since abandoned were part of a more minor outpost.

Beneath the frosty veneer, an underground world thrives, from briny subglacial lakes to a colossal mountain range shrouded beneath the ice. One and a half times larger than the United States, this frozen titan lays entombed beneath a crystalline blanket that envelopes 99 percent of its vast expanse.

The Southern Ocean—the world’s fourth-largest ocean—encapsulates Antarctica in an unyielding embrace. Amidst this daunting seascape, the Metis Polar Station stands sentinel, a trio of buildings forming the nucleus of an ambitious research endeavour. A mile away, two forsaken huts linger in quiet desolation, the remnants of a once-thriving outpost now surrendered to the relentless march of time.
