Falkland Islands – South Georgia – South Sandwich Islands – Antarctica

MV Ortelius, 01-23 November, 2013

Ope­ra­ted by Ocean­wi­de Expe­di­ti­ons

Oceanwide Expeditions

A voya­ge to places inclu­ding some that are very rare­ly visi­ted even within an ant­ar­c­tic con­text, and we tra­vel­led under a lucky star. You need a bit of luck to land in St. Andrews Bay, South Georgia’s big­gest King pen­gu­in colo­ny, or to Zodiac-crui­se Point Wild on Ele­phant Island, whe­re Shackleton’s 22 men were maroo­ned for more than 4 months in 1916. But the high­light – I am sure­ly not the only one say­ing this – was get­ting to the very rare­ly visi­ted, remo­te South Sand­wich Islands, and even bet­ter: landing on one of them! The wea­ther gods were tru­ly on our side.

Have a look at my bilin­gu­al face­book side for a blog from the voya­ge (you don’t have to be mem­ber or pro­vi­de any infor­ma­ti­on to access the posts).

Here, you can find the tri­plog and four gal­le­ries with pho­tos from the Falk­land Islands, South Geor­gia, the South Sand­wich Islands and Ant­ar­c­ti­ca.

I also mana­ged to shoot quite a few 360-degree-pan­o­r­amic images and they will soon be acces­si­ble here. And I can pro­mi­se alre­a­dy now: it will be wort­hwhile coming back and having a look!
