Antarctica: South Georgia

Two days’ voyage north from Antarctica across the Scotia Sea, this narrow island of two mountain ranges rises 2,300m from the ocean – a land of glaciated alpine peaks, ice-scalloped fjords and protected valleys. It is at the now-rusting whaling station at Stromness that Shackleton first raised the alarm of his wrecked ship, having famously trekked across the mountains

Breeding colonies of king, gentoo, macaroni penguins are to be found, Adélie, chinstrap, Magellanic and rockhopper penguins may also be spotted. Also present are Antarctic giant petrels, snow petrels, snowy sheathbills, Antarctic and slender-billed prions, albatrosses and mollymawks. Elephant seals, and over a million fur seals breed on the beaches, and leopard seals hunt around the penguin rookeries.
