Welcome to Framheim, Captain!

Welcome to the world of Polargeeks. Framheim has been created to explore the phenomena of Polar Exploration: the books, the people, the places and the movie(s).

Please take a look at Framsjaa, our News page, containing news, tidbits, and current travelogues relating to polar exploration (Framsjaa was the name of the ship's newspaper aboard Fridtjof Nansen's Fram during her Arctic drift. Framheim if full of delicious polar minutiae such as this).

We have been told that this site can be confusing to navigate, what with all the pages and links and whatnot. Well, check out the sitemap, which may help.

Our polar library lists some of the more interesting or newsworthy polar books. There are thousands of books out there, and no one can read them all. Have you read a book that's not listed in our library? Read what stuff we're accepting and let us know.

Framheim is a work in progress, so not every section will be complete. In fact, our neglect of the history section has left it desolate, though Shackleton, Amundsen and Scott have a few short pieces about them. Please be patient. If you'd like to see other explorers, or perhaps submit a write up of your own, please contact polargeek@framheim.com. We welcome contributions.

Just as the real Framheim was the product of many men, so is eFramheim (a name we will use just this oncem and with tongue firmly in cheek) a collaboration of many people with many opinions. Though the crevasse separating idea and actuality is growing ever wider, someday we will have the message boards and Expedition game up and running. We could use your help.

To see the latest additions to Framheim, please check our News page. Of course, we recommend you bookmark this page and come back often to see what's new. Feel free to send us a cable to let us know what you think. Don't forget to sign the register, or check out what other people think of this place.

Don't know anything about Antarctic Exploration? Want to know where to begin? Take a walk through The Last Place on Earth museum. Buy the book! Rent the Masterpiece Theatre series! That's how we got started, and look where it got us.
