SOUTH GEORGIA

Charcoal-black mountains ladled with snow, giant glaciers and thriving wildlife combine to make South Georgia one of the great natural islands. Adventure to these far flung lands - where the animals are in charge and humans come a distant second. Here you'll witness a cacophony of calling birds, natural set pieces like elephant seals clashing and thrashing, and crowds of colourful king penguins stretching out as far as the eye can see.

An overseas territory of the UK, these isolated, subantarctic islands once formed a remote whaling centre - and you can still visit the former whaling stations. Nowadays the giants of the sea are free to cruise the icy waters uninhibited. Written into explorer history due to its links with Ernest Shackleton’s tale of Antarctic exploration, shipwreck and survival, the Endurance’s crew were saved when he reached the salvation of these shores in 1916 - before returning to collect the remaining sailors from Elephant Island. A museum commemorates the legendary mission, and you can see the memorial to Shackleton that stands over his final resting place on this fabled island. South Georgia’s colonies of king penguins - with vivid bursts of yellow and orange around their necks - stand, squabble and curiously investigate, enjoying the isolated respite of this island. They’re joined by smaller penguin species like Macaroni penguins, and other glorious birdlife like the majestic wandering albatrosses, which you can see gliding on gusts of wind, over the choppy waves.

Excursions in SOUTH GEORGIA

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

South Georgia, an island with high mountains and glaciers going all the way down to the ocean, has the largest concentration of king penguin colonies worldwide. It is nesting ground for various albatross species, amongst other seabirds. Also elephant seals and fur seals are common at the beaches of the island. At various beaches are still some remains from the whaling time. At the former whaling station Grytviken - which will be visited during our time at South Georgia - is in our days a small museum, the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton and a small post office

Hiking with Silversea Expedition team

We will enjoy guided hikes with your expedition team over tundra, beaches, small streams and avoiding the meanacing teeth of the Furselas who are always eager to defend their territory. Hikes of different lengths and abilities are offered in order for everyone to enjoy the spectacular setting. Even if you cannot wander far, there is always plenty of wildlife to see near the landing sites.

Kayaking with Silversea Expedition team

Take the opportunity to get out onto the water with our Kayak guides and experience the South Georgia wildlife and coastline from water level. This must be the most spectacular place in the world to get out by Kayak to view bird and wild life.

Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team

Explore the northern coast of this island with arguably the best and most concentrated wildlife on the planet. Enjoy several Zodiac landings on beaches covered with King Penguins, Gentoo Penguins and go in search of Rockhopper Penguins. We will go ashore on landing sites where thousands of fur seals have given birth to pups. We will also view the size and grandeur of elephant seals at other sites. There is a rich whaling history in South Georgia and we will land near some of these locations to admire these historic remains.

We will also offer Zodiac Cruises along the spectacular shore line in small bays where Macaroni penguins, Leopard seals and whales can be found.

Wildlife sightings can't be guaranteed and may vary according to the time of the year we visit this region.
