Circumnavigation of South Georgia

Expedition Highlights

  • Spend seven days exploring South Georgia, a land of majestic beauty and amazing wildlife.
  • Visit the beautiful, windswept Falkland Islands to view nesting black-browed albatross, Magellanic and rockhopper penguins, along with a host of endemic birds found nowhere else in the world.
  • Witness huge colonies of king penguins; with over 200,000 at Salisbury Plain, the colony extends for miles along the sandy beach and tussock-covered hillside.
  • Learn about early polar exploration and whaling history, including a visit to the burial site of Sir Ernest Shackleton.
  • Watch the antics of fur and elephant seals—males protecting harems, juveniles sparring, and females tending to adorable young pups.

Zegrahm makes it happen! The quality of the staff and their lectures cannot be beat. Each day is jampacked with opportunities to learn and explore—if you want to go somewhere remote, wild, and complicated, they're the best.
