Elephant Island is an ice-covered, mountainous island off the coast of Antarctica in the outer reaches of the South Shetland Islands in the Southern Ocean. To the north in an arc are the South American mainland, Falkland Islands, and South Georgia. Elephant Island was originally named Sea Elephant Island. While the island doesn’t support any significant flora or native fauna, migratory gentoo penguins and seals may be found on its shores, and chinstrap penguins nest there in season. Travellers who are eager to experience nature in its most raw state, and see parts of the planet completely unaffected by humans, will definitely not be disappointed.

The island is best known for the desolate refuge and eventual rescue of Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 28 in 1916, following the loss of their ship Endurance in Weddell Sea ice. The astonishing story of their determination - where 22 of Shackleton's crew spent four long, dark Antarctic winter months awaiting rescue - and amazing survival makes it a wonderful cruise destination for adventurous travellers. Shackletons’ men called Elephant Island “Hell-of-an-island.” There’s no evidence left of the 22 men who lived there in primitive conditions for 138 days, except a Chilean monument. Visitors must surely read about Shackleton’s voyage ahead of their cruise.

The island is elongated, 45km east-west, with hardly any flat land, and highest point 853m at Pardo Ridge (named after the captain who rescued Shackleton). It is uninhabited due to no safe anchorage. Ships cannot often land parties due to the conditions. The weather is normally foggy with snow and strong winds to 130 kph and waves to 15m. There’s a historic wreck of a wooden sailing vessel to the SW of the island. The main glacier on the island, Endurance Glacier, drains to the SE. Shackleton’s camp at Point Wild is on the north side.
