Transport

Approaching Antarctica by ship is a fraught business as the unpredictable seaice cover can delay, trap or sink a vessel. Icebreakers and research ships supply bases, while tourist ships are usually ice-strengthened. Flying is also difficult, with unpredictable weather, and landing strips of snow and ice. The helicopter is a vital part of all operations, base and tourist. On the ground sophisticated tracked oversnow vehicles and skidoos have replaced the husky - more efficient, but not cuddly. Hedgehog House photographers have tried many forms of transport.
