Information about Alger Island

Camp Ziegler on Alger Island was one of the camps used by the Fiala-Ziegler Polar Expedition of 1903-1905. This expedition failed in its ultimate goal to reach the North Pole. The expedition crew sought refuge at Camp Ziegler after repeated unfavorable events caused their mission to halt, mostly from extreme weather. Today the huts are in ruins, but one of the best preserved in the area.
