On December 14, 1911, Norwegian Roald Amundsen became the first person to reach the South Pole and secured his place in history as one of the great explorers. Exploration infuses everything we do at Viking River Cruises and so we celebrate this accomplishment of courage, determination and careful planning. Join us on an exciting journey through history — on the centenary of Amundsen's expedition — with this 10-minute film, narrated by Viking's own Karine Hagen. "Victory awaits him, who has everything in order. Luck we call it." -- Roald Amundsen Karine Hagen of Viking River Cruises is your host.

All the lessons he took from his time during his northwest passage crossing among the inuit people proved to be in his favor during this great accomplishment.. smart man and the men of his team.

Scott should not have used horses, but camels from Mongolia, camels that have two humps and are adapted to extremely low temperatures and live in snow and ice. These camels stand perfectly -40 degrees, they can be two months without eating, and to drink if they do not have water they can eat snow. Scott's expedition could have consisted of 50 Mongolian camels, each carrying a sleigh or cart loaded with soybeans and wheat, wearing protective boots and warm clothes, and the expeditionaries mounted on camels, not to walk

Scott had to use not horses but Mongolian camels, the two-humped camels, which are animals that support -40º centigrade without problems, that support two months without eating, that they can eat ice and snow if they do not have water, without problems. These camels could have been dragging carts with very wide wheels or sledges laden with soybeans and wheat, which could also have served as food for humans. These camels could wear vests and boots against the cold. And humans go riding on them, on horseback, not walking. In total an expedition of about 50 camels going in single file.

Royally Unstable I had to watch this I class and again for homework and complete a worksheet. I'm interested in this but I just don't like it when I have to do work about it. But then again at least I didn't have to write 2 essays on it.

And the weakest dogs were eaten in the last few days before they reached the pole ..I have one of the bells from the dogs necks prized procession ...
PJOandHoOfan 16 (2 years ago)
Pedro Alegre yeah that makes sense but would the Mongolian camels be able to survive the cold climate? Amundsens dogs were able to survive because they were bred for cold weather. And they have thick fur to keep them warm.
Pedro Alegre (2 years ago)
Scott should have used 30 or 40 Mongolian camels, not horses, because camels resist 30 days or more without eating. And Scott and his people go mounted on camels, not walking

KirbyGamer293 (4 years ago)
When I started watching this I noticed it was 10 minutes but when I finished this I got so much research and it felt like it gave me the most information!
PJOandHoOfan 16 (2 years ago)
KirbyGamer293 I know at the beginning I wasn't sure if I would be able to write what I learned about it and the details but at the end I realized that I needed more space than what they gave me for writing down my answers I learned so much from it

MAKES ME PROUD..my great grandfather Helmer  Hanssen was with Ronald Amundson on the South Pole Expedition ,I grew up on the stories from my grandfather  from where they lived and the day they returned ,I have the original book my great grandfather wrote as well as one of the bells from the dogs neck. What is never mentioned was the King of Norway gave metals to them all and the King of Norway also paid for my great grandfathers burial 44 years later they were and still are not forgotten in Norway... again makes me proud...

Pam willson (1 year ago)
I have read his book quite a few times (once Modern voyagers) and what they went though was amazing but by reading what he wrote you also learn a lot about what was done and how they beat Scott to the pole I have some of the most wonderful pictures but cant find how to up load to here .

roald is my great x6 uncle, related to my mothers grandmothers side.
Tony Micel (2 years ago)
I would be proud to . those expeditions in those days were ground breaking. it took balls to go where nobody has succeeded and uncharted territory took more then balls n guts. especially when u hear of all the other attempts and there Fait. it's almost like being suicidal. I prefer to be in a warm bed with a woman then searching for the North Pole in 50 below weather. but that's just me. 😋

Roald was a brilliant Polar Explorer. All Kudos to him. Then there was Lindstroms hot cakes waiting when they arrived back at the bay of whales. Lovely trip to the pole and back. All came home fit and well. Bit different to Scotts Horrible man hauling with insufficient food and fuel. Lost the race and all his men.

our school in Latvia Ask us to view it and answer the questions for practicing English :)
Crobular I (5 years ago)
Most brilliant feat of all polar exploration. Amazing man and team. Well planned and executed. Made a fool of poor old Scott with his fiasco. And to think that I was taught at school (1947) that Capt. Scott discovered the South Pole. Old Roald discovered and boxed it nearly 5 weeks before Scott got there. Amundsen got back as well in one piece. It was a relatively easy trip for Amundsen using sledge dogs and a rediculous fiasco for Scott Man-Hauling.

This great Some much information in a 10 minute Video Great job.

No wonder Amundsen took a round about way to get back to Norway, I would have waited for Nansen to cool off too, he looks like a rather intense guy.
