Halley Bay, Antarctica
Halley is the UK's most isolated station (75.35S, 26.39W) and is afloat on an ice shelf on the mainland of Antarctica. In winter there is darkness for 105 days - darkness relieved by magnificent auroral displays. The relief of Halley is a major undertaking with supplies being landed twice a year by ship onto the ice shelf and then towed on sledges by Sno-cats to Halley, some 12 km distant from the ice edge.
