The expedition was carried out in close co-operation with the Finnish Antarctic research Programme FINNARP, and the participants stayed at the Finnish resarch station Aboa, located close to Wasa.

The Wasa Research Station was built at Vestfjella in Dronning Maud Land during the 1988/89 Antarctic Expedition. The station is located at 73°03’S, 13°25’W at the Basen nunatak. Wasa and Aboa Research Station constitutes the Nordenskiöld Base.
