Sail to South Georgia Island
Crowned with snow-capped peaks and positively packed with penguins, this sub-Antarctic island is one of the world’s most remote and beautiful places. It’s also home to a mind-blowing array of wildlife, including species that are either extinct or endangered virtually everywhere else. Here you’ll find fur seals thriving, as well as the wandering albatross—the world’s largest bird when measured by wingspan. Again, it’s the millions of the penguins that serve as South Georgia Island’s chief attraction, with rookeries of majestic king penguins simply breathtaking in size and scope, numbering in the hundreds of thousands at St. Andrew’s Bay and Salisbury Plain.
