On 14 December 2011 it is exactly 100 years ago that Amundsen reached the geographical South Pole. For that reason we organise an Polar symposium on that exact day. Below you find some links of websites with more information about this remarkable man.
On the website of the Fram museum in Olso you can find a lot of information about Roald Amundsens life and history.
On the website of the Fram museum, the daily notes of Roald Amundsen are available. The blogs started June 6th.
It is also 150 years ago since the birth of Friedjoff Nansen, a reason for the Norwegian to call 2011 the Nansen-Amundsen year.
