Grytviken

  • Aboard the National Geographic Orion
  • Antarctica
After gale force winds prohibited us from completing our morning operations, we found ourselves at Grytviken an iconic and historically rich site that is a must-see for any traveller. Here we landed near the remains of the station and museum before continuing on to explore the surround area. Later in the afternoon, with a wet and gloomy backdrop, we all meet at a small cemetery just outside of town – the final resting place of Sir Ernest Shackleton.
