Our trip to South Georgia was spread over a period of about a week and was done on the Polar Pioneer with Aurora Expeditions of Sydney Australia. The highlight of the trip to these remote islands is the abundance of Penguins (total of 10 Million on the islands) Seals (incredible in their abundance and variety of species) birds, whales and dolphins.

Snow capped mountains and towering glaciers flowing into the sea make this a most wonderful place and well worth the cost, tine and discomfort in getting there.

There is also a small museum and souveneir shop run by a handful of scientists who live in 6 month postings at Grytviken station.
