Here are some interesting facts I found at worldatlas.com. " Antarctica, almost 98% solid ice, was finally considered a continent in 1840, and not just a group of isolated islands. Today it has active territorial claims submitted by Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom." Do you think you have cold Winters? Check this out, "Antarctica is the coldest and windiest spot on the planet. In fact, the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth was recorded in Antarctica (-129.3ºF) and the mean winter temperatures range from -40º to -94ºF. Winds are commonly measured at up to 200 miles per hour."
If you were to take refuge in Antarctica, I think zombies would be the least of your concerns. There are several research stations there though - manned by various different countries. You might be able to take refuge at one of them. From what I understand, one of them is green, so you might be able to survive in it.
Here's a couple to check out: http://www.antarcticstation.org or http://www.usap.gov.
I've personally never been to Antarctica (I hate the cold), but if you love adventure, there are different expeditions you can join. One that sounds interesting is through a company called Expedition Trips. According to their site, the trip includes a "cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula and surrounding islands aboard a stylish state-of-the-art expedition ship with outstanding guides, kayaks, underwater dive master, and National Geographic partnership." The site has a picture of people in a raft checking out penguins. That's kinda epic I guess if you prefer penguins to zombies... unless they are zombie penguins, which would be kinda freaky.
If Antarctic is on your post-apocalypse bucket list, you may want to book a per-apocalypse trip with one of these expedition companies to check out the turf. As for me, I'm going to stick with my deserted island plan.
