Attached to my guide while climbing Queen Maud Land’s giant (tens of meters high), surreal ice waves that form near the coast when the wind and sea push the ice into the continent, causing it buckle and refreeze.

\

In Queen Maud Land, the pack ice extends for hundreds of miles but near the coast, the wind and sea push the ice into the continent, causing it buckle and refreeze into these giant (tens of meters high), surreal waves of ice. There are also jagged peaks and ice caves in every shade of blue, and crevasses, small lakes, and streams.

Queen Maud Land is almost entirely devoid of life, save for two species of birds that occasionally breed there. In my entire stay, I saw four birds. This was one of them. He was called Dickey, and he followed us everywhere. We were told he comes back to camp year after year.

Trekking nine miles down and over mountains of giant rocks to get closer to Queen Maud Land’s coast to climb the giant frozen ice waves.
