South Georgia

Widely known as the Serengeti of the Southern Ocean. South Georgia is an island in the southern Atlantic Ocean, within the ecosystem of the Antarctic but outside the ice limits. This means visitors can enjoy a wealth of fascinating wildlife species without the concerns about whether the island can be reached. It is included as a destination on cruise itineraries from South America, usually as part of an Antarctic cruise, and you’ll benefit from the guidance of your on-board experts who can teach you all about the native species and their habitats.

The island is home to millions of breeding penguins, seals and seabirds at any one time, with the chance to get close enough to see seal pups darting in and out of the water, albatross flying overhead and more. Around the island you’ll find a number of abandoned whaling station and even a small church that was used by sailors. The island also hosts a discreet graveyard where Sir Ernest Shackleton, the great explorer, is buried, should you wish to pay your respects.

The currency on South Georgia is the British Pound. South Georgia is 2 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -2).
