Giant Iceberg, South Georgia Island

On the way to South Georgia, this massive iceberg dwarfed our small boat! South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands is a British overseas territory found in the southern Atlantic.
A major center for Norway’s whaling industry in the 19th century, South Georgia is a beautiful yet rugged landscape of mountains and glaciers and a dangerous coastline swept by frequent storms. A brief summer brings abundant Antarctic wildlife to the island, which in turn has led to an increase in tourism with cruise ships and private yachts visiting the area more frequently.
