Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Kerguelen Islands

The Kerguelen Islands were discovered during a French search for ‘Terra Australis’ in 1772 and claimed by France in 1893. Today the main island is home to the only settlement, the Port-aux-Français Research Station, with an additional 30 research huts and houses across the island. Known as “Grande Terre” this island is surrounded by some 300 smaller islands and islets and it alone covers 6,675 of the archipelago’s 7215 square kilometers. Kerguelen’s highest point is Mt. Ross with 1,850 meters and on its western side is Cook Glacier. View more
