The poles of inaccessibility are arguably the last true frontiers for explorers. But where and what are they?
I’ve long been fascinated with the remote places of Earth and the epic journeys of discovery to reach them. I’ve spent countless long mornings lying in bed leafing through giant reference books on the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration and even longer afternoons pouring over immense maps detailing epic voyages and enduring quests across untamed oceans.
It was the names of Amundsen, Livingstone and Magellan and their unfathomable tales of distant lands, high seas and adventure that first inspired me to travel. For modern explores the poles of inaccessibility represent the outer limits of mankind’s grip on our planet.
