Sonny gets a tour of Scott Base, home away from home for all kiwis in Antarctica. He learns how they turn sea water into drinking water and how they use poo-eating bugs to deal with the waste.
Sonny catches a helicopter to meet some of Antarctica's adelie and emperor penguins, tries out a loo with a view and helps the scientists by collecting some penguin poo.
Sonny travels to the coldest, windiest, driest place on earth, camps out on the ice and meets a 'seal whisperer', even hearing the songs of seals underwater.
