#1 of 3 Sights & Landmarks in Grytviken
A landing at Grytviken Whaling Station was part of our Antarctic cruise itinerary, but we would definitely have made an extra effort to visit this scenic, historic and atmospheric place.
We stopped here on our Pontant cruise, you can do a walking tour of the old whaling station and learn about its history and processes.
#2 of 3 Sights & Landmarks in Grytviken
The fur seals were interspersed with a few king penguins and elephant seals as we made our pilgrimage up the slope to the whaler’s cemetery.
The Graves and surroundings are Very Well Maintained and well worth a Visit to Reflect on REAL History
#3 of 3 Sights & Landmarks in Grytviken
It was wonderful to visit this sweet lil Church on Christmas Eve! Set against a backdrop of beautiful mountains and surrounded by fur seals, elephant seals and king penguins!
There are various plaques on the wall commemorating visiting ships and at end of the building by the altar there is a library holding hundreds of old books, their age showing with blown bindings.
