This paper describes 3 new boreholes (1.6, 15 and 25 m deep) that were drilled and instrumented in 2008 on the top of Mount Reina Sofia near the Spanish Antarctic station on Livingston Island, South Shetland archipelago. Because these boreholes are intended for long-term permafrost monitoring, this paper serves as a base reference to describe the sites, the instrumentation and the borehole drilling methods
