A trip to South Georgia in the remote southern Atlantic reveals its 9,000-foot peaks and some 160 glaciers among converging ocean currents that feed some of the greatest densities of megafauna on the planet. It is a stop on many Antarctic tours, along with the Falkland IslandsSouth Georgia island is known for its large populations of king penguins, seals, and various sea birds, including the diving petrels and majestic albatrosses. Along the way, you will spot the mighty Southern Right Whales breaching the water and then head on to the Antarctic Peninsula to follow in the footsteps of Shackleton himself, whose crew rescued themselves in South Georgia after floating 800 miles in a life raft from Elephant Island.
