South Georgia Penguins

Stunning South Georgia

South Georgia is arguably the most stunning place I’ve ever visited for wildlife and photography. Warning: This is a photo-heavy post but it’s worth the bandwidth!

The island of South Georgia is only 165 kilometers long and <35km wide, but it contains incredible mountain landscapes, with peaks up to 2,934M, and shocking quantities of wildlife, including millions of penguins!

Incredibly, I hadn’t heard of South Georgia and the South Shetland Islands until beginning my search for Antarctic cruise options; rather astonishing for a geography nerd like myself!
