Bowser's Castle in Mario is Missing!, which is situated in Antarctica.

Antarctica (Spanish: Antártida; French: Antarctique; Norwegian: Antarktis) is a continent on Earth, and is the only continent not inhabited by humans due to its frozen climate. Many Penguins populate Antarctica.

Antarctica appeared in an episode of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, "7 Continents for 7 Koopas". When Bowser tried to conquer the entire Real World, he put Big Mouth Koopa Jr. under control of Antarctica. Big Mouth used his Magic Wand to create an Abominable Snowkoopa to terrorize the local Penguins. Luigi later restored peace to the continent.

In Mario is Missing!, Bowser and the Koopalings travel to Antarctica and build a fortress there. It was Bowser's plan to steal and sell various artifacts, and use the money he got to buy hair dryers from Hafta Havit Mail-Order, which he was going to use to melt Antarctica, flooding the Earth.
