Princess Elisabeth Station

This is from Belgium's Princess Elisabeth Station in the Antarctic. Mail from this ultra modern station is sent out by ship through Cape Town in South Africa.


The station sits up on a rocky ridge (a Nunatak) known as Utsteinen, in Queen Maud Land, over 200km from the coast. The base has accommodations for up to 16. During the summer months, several research teams setup camp behind the station.
