We were incredibly fortunate to have exceptionally calm and sunny weather for our second day in South Georgia. Just minutes after sunrise, a group of us were onshore and hiking in the footsteps of Shackleton towards Stromness. Another party visited the Fortuna king penguin colony. Over lunch we sailed through a veritable ice sculpture exhibit with hundreds of icebergs stranded along the coast of South Georgia, set against the Allardyce Range in all its glory: razor sharp snowy peaks flanked by glaciers. The afternoon was spent exploring the Grytviken whaling station museum and kayaking around the bay. We ended the day with an endorphin-pumping polar plunge.
