Burke Island, Antarctica

There are still a few places on our planet that no country has claimed. Burke Island is one. Recognised as a terra nullius, this ice-covered island about 30 km (19 miles) long and 11 km (7 miles) wide was delineated from aerial photographs taken by the U.S. Navy in 1960. Located in the Amundsen Sea in the King Peninsula, it owes its name to Admiral Arleigh A. Burke of the U.S. Navy, the Chief of Naval Operations during Operation Deep Freeze (1956-1961), a series of United States missions to Antarctica. You will have the privilege of sailing around this island in a Zodiac® dinghy and landing on a “no man’s land” for a rich and unique experience.
