It's been 100 years since humans first reached the South Pole.
According to the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators, about 30,000 people visit the continent of Antarctica annually. However, only a fraction make it to the pole.
Is there a "frugal traveller" means of reaching the South Pole? What options exist? Do you need a team or can you join a group tour? How much time needs to be allocated for a round-trip there?
