Their nearest neighbours are almost 2 000 kilometres away in South Africa and to South America and did about 3000 kilometers.

Scientists and engineers come to the archipelago and live here for a year because of its proximity to Antarctica.

Alert, a remote village in the canadian province of Nunavut, is just 750 kilometers South of the North pole. All year round it is home to only 5 people, probably due to severely low temperatures. Here in summer the sun shines 24 hours a day, and in winter, by contrast, is dark all the time. The closest area of civilization — a fishing village about 1 800 kilometers. In the Alpine there is the airport used by the military, but because of zwergholdrio climate to do it turns out very rarely.
