Visitor Sites

A list of 49 approved visitor sites is included as an annex in the Information for Visitors to South Georgia booklet. Some approved sites are only suitable for Zodiac cruising and cruise ships carrying in excess of 200 passengers are only permitted to land passengers at certain sites.

On occasions approved visitor sites may be closed due to environmental issues. When possible, this information is detailed in the documentation. Permit Holders will also be advised during the course of their arrival briefings.

A number of Visitor Site Management Plans (SVMPs) have be prepared for the most popular landing sites and also landings which involve overland walks. It is a visit permit condition that all SVMP are followed and complied with at all times.
