Luxury Expedition Cruising
Presenting a rugged Antarctic appearance, with over half the island permanently glaciated, South Georgia is unbelievably picturesque.
Abundant with wildlife, spectacular scenery and a truly captivating history, South Georgia’s unlimited sense of wonder makes it easy to see why this remote location is so fascinating to explore. A small number of British Antarctic Survey staff permanently reside in Grytviken, but the rest of the island is now only inhabited by an array of wildlife. Around half the world's population of southern Elephant Seals arrive in South Georgia each year to breed, whilst you can also expect to spot six penguin species, including Kings, Adelie and Rockhoppers. When you’re not admiring the magnificent mountains or watching thousands of penguins as they cover the coastline, ensure you pay a visit to historic Grytviken Whaling Station and Museum, the Norwegian seaman’s church and peaceful graveyard of legendary Antarctic explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton.
