Museum, Shackleton's grave, King Penguins, Albatross
Alternative Port:  South Georgia Island   - click for cruises that visit this port.

Snow covered mountains provide a dramatic background for the remains of the oldest shore-based whaling station in Antarctica, abandoned in 1965. This former Norwegian enclave was the largest of the five South Georgia whaling operations and the vast complex can still be visited. Today it is home to an intriguing museum, a small garrison of British soldiers and Shackleton's grave in Grytviken Cemetery. Weather permitting, a visit can be made to a vast colony of magnificent king penguins and a nearby island providing a nesting-ground for the huge wandering albatross, the world's largest seabird. Fur and elephant seals can be seen on the beach, and giant petrels, shags, skuas and terns breed here in amazing concentrations.
