Cruises from South Orkney Islands

The South Orkney Islands is a group of islands in the Southern Ocean approximately 640 km NE of the Antarctic Peninsula. First discovered in 1821, they comprise four main islands, the largest being Coronation Island, highest point Mount Nivea standing 1265m above sea level. The islands are claimed by both Britain and Argentina. The primary presence on the islands is related to two research stations run by Argentina and Great Britain.
