Pole Trekking Maps

By: Adventure Travel

If you venture into a new place that is greatly unknown to the outside world, you may be very uncomfortable trying to find your way around. However, if you have enough maps to guide you, you tend to relax in the barely-charted territory. The same is true of both the North Pole and Antarctica. While many people dream of exploring such uncharted territory, the few that have had such an opportunity have used a map to find their way around. Before you decide to take the same sort of journey, you'll want to consult several pole trekking maps.

Why would someone need more than one map of the same area? Well, first of all, the North Pole and Antarctica are not charted in the same detail as countries such as the United States or England. Much of these areas are not well explored or well documented. While this is part of the appeal of the area, it is also a great danger to those who wish to cross the icy terrain without a guide. Pole trekking maps are not all the same or completely accurate, and consulting more than one will give a traveler a better chance at finding his or her way to a specific location without getting lost, as well as a better idea of the actual lay of the land.

Even if you don't carry multiple pole trekking maps, you should have at least one good map of the areas you wish to explore. If you read maps well and have a good sense of direction, this may be possible. However, remember that in the unexplored territories north and south of civilization, you will not have cell phone or Internet access, and you can't simply call someone to come get you. There are no GPS mapping devices, and no technology will help you find your way home. Therefore, should you choose to go out alone without a guide and tour group, you must prepare with pole trekking maps.

Where can you find this information? First, you should check with the travel agency that helped you book your trip. If they have nothing or you didn't use a travel agency, purchase one at another agency or travel store. Be sure that the directions on the map are given according to actual landmasses and other permanent structures that can serve as points of reference. Icy formations cannot be used as a point of reference because addition to the structure from additional precipitation or changes to the shape due to melting can easily steer you off course.
