South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands

South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands is a British Overseas Territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean.  Stunningly beautiful and rugged, this island wildlife sanctuary, once visited, is not easily forgotten. Its snow covered peaks, blue glacier ice and emerald green bays are breathtaking sights.

It is a real “oasis” in the stormy southern oceans and is home to amazing wildlife like penguins, albatrosses, seals, whales and petrels.
