Spherical panoramas

Experience Antarctica by viewing these spherical panoramas where you can look in every direction: 360° around, up, down, and zoom in and out.

These panoramas work great on an iPad (try landscape mode), but the resolution is reduced so you can’t zoom in too far. To see more detail, view them on a computer (try full screen mode). On a computer you can pan around using the arrow keys, and zoom in and out using the Shift and Ctrl keys.

Cape Royds, Ross Island

Shackleton’s Hut
The weather is very unpredictable in Antarctica, and we were very fortunate to have been able to made landings at all three huts on this trip. It started to lightly snow when this spherical panorama was being taken, but it is hard to imagine what it was like to have spent a whole winter here.

Tasmania

Australian Antarctic Division headquarters
The morning before embarking on this expedition, I visited the Australian Antarctic Division’s headquarters in Kingston, Tasmania.
