Once a prolific whaling hub, now a graveyard of expedition stations and hunters, South Georgia is teeming with animal life.

Often the first points of entry into the Antarctic, South Georgia greets visitors with magnificent mountains, slowly growing with the approach. The island itself is a wonderland of the world’s most southerly ecosystem. Animals here seem indifferent to human presence – being the custodians of this land – as visitors tiptoe among the penguins and seals. With reindeer, albatross and more living beneath a backdrop of glaciers, the island of South Georgia is the perfect introduction to any Antarctic trip.
