Fortuna Bay, Stromness Harbour, Maiviken & Grytviken, South Georgia

Feb 28, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


We spent another gorgeous day in South Georgia.  Offering guests an early morning landing gave some the opportunity to hike the last section of Shackleton’s journey walking from Fortuna bay ending in Stromness Harbour.  The conditions were beautiful and they lasted with us throughout the afternoon, where we went ashore at Grytviken an old whaling station that is now manned year-round by workers of the British Antarctic Survey.
