The South Shetland Islands is a group of 11 major and several minor islands located 960 km south of the tip of South America and about 120 km north of the Antarctic Peninsula. While discovered towards the beginning of the seventeenth century, either by Dutch or Spanish explorers, it is currently not administered by any one nation. There are 18 research stations on the islands (10 year-round, 8 summer only). With research a shared duty of nations, it is not surprising that the ‘Unofficial Capital of Antarctica’ is regarded as being situated on King George Island, the largest of the group.

Around 85 percent of the islands are permanently glaciated or snow covered. The sea around the islands is closed by ice from early April to early December. The climate is cloudy and humid all year round and very strong westerly winds blow at all seasons. The highest point on the island chain is Mount Irving on Clarence Island at 2,300 m. The region’s tundra vegetation consists of mosses, lichens and algae. Seabirds, penguins and seals feed in the surrounding waters. Sealers and whale hunters worked seasonally on the islands from the early 19th C to early 20th C.

Although flanked by some of the most excitable seas of the oceans, and ice-bergs in quantity, shore activities include mountain climbing, camping, kayaking and scuba diving. Albatrosses, seals and penguins of numerous varieties, myriads of other birds, and at times humpback whales, are all seen in abundance. Regarded by many as having some of the most beautiful scenery that the planet has to offer, seascapes and landscapes that one can only dream about, explorer ships bring it all to you.
