South Georgia / Antarctic
The island group of South Georgia is located in the South Atlantic, some 1,400 km east of the Argentine mainland. In administrative terms, the archipelago, together with the Southern Sandwich Islands, forms a British overseas territory. The main island of the group is the South Island by the same name.
The tundra vegetation of the islands is only covered by a few low-growing plants, including mosses and lichens, various grasses, and in the summer even some types of flowers. South Georgia is known as the most important breeding area of the king penguin. Over 400,000 animals, it is estimated, have found ideal conditions for living and breeding here. Numerous sea elephants and sea lions are also found in South Georgia. Located on Bird Island, northwest of the main island, is an observation station for seabirds and seals. Which of the islands of the archipelago are always on your agenda, fascinating and unforgettable experiences and impressions you will take home in any case.
