Day 9 - South Georgia

South Georgia is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The island is a tiny speck in the vastness of the South Atlantic Ocean, one of the most remote parts of our planet. A 3,000-metre mountain range forms the spine of the long, narrow island. Between the mountains, shattered glaciers carve their way through tussock grass to the deeply indented coastline. Despite being such a small outpost in the vastness of the south Atlantic, the sea around South Georgia is one of the most lively areas on earth. The abundant marine life supports millions of seals, whales, penguins and seabirds. Shackleton and five of his crew sailed from Elephant Island in the James Caird for 16 days and 1,300 kilometres and finally found safety in the tiny entrance of Cave Cove. This epic story of survival began with the sinking of his ship, the Endurance, in the Weddell Sea, six months earlier. As you explore South Georgia, you will have the opportunity to reflect on Shackleton’s epic journey.
