Those who have been will tell you that visiting South Georgia is a world apart from Antarctica. Both are stunning and unique but both offer their own fascinating wildlife and scenery. South Georgia is well known for its huge penguin rookeries, home to hundreds of thousands of King penguins and beaches fought over by elephant seals. In addition the island is known for the heroic journey by Shackleton and his men across the glaciers to the whaling stations on the north shore. The great man now lies buries at Grytviken and visiting his grave is a highlight of your journey. Onward to Antarctica where glaciers, icebergs, several species of penguin, sea birds, seal and whales await. Add to this journey a stop at the Falklands with its unique avifauna and one of the world's most remote outposts and you have a journey that is hard to beat.
