Adrien Victor Joseph de Gerlache (1866-1934) was a lieutenant in the Royal Belgian Navy and in 1898 he was sailing into Antarctica on the ship Belgica. You will see his monument opposite of the "museum of the end of the world"
Adrien de Gerlache was the first to winter-over in Antarctica (1897-1899)

In case that you plan to go to Antarctica,
the best time to do so is between November and March
