Bouvet Island is unihabited with sheer cliffs, remains covered (almost entirely) by a glacier and, in winter, its seas are pack-ice.  It's nearest neighbor is Antarctica, a thousand miles SOUTH!

The Norwegian Polar Institute established a 36-square-metre (390 sq ft) research station, made of shipping containers, at Nyrøysa in 1996. On 23 February 2006, the island experienced a magnitude 6.2 earthquake whose epicenter was about 100 km (62 mi) away (originally reported as magnitude 5.5), weakening the station's foundation and causing it to be blown to sea in a winter storm
