Grytviken was the last stop through the South Georgia & Sandwich Islands. This is an old whaling town where in the last century, whalers would work here round the clock. The remnants of that history are prevalent everywhere, and our group was able to have a tour of the grounds. There is a small post office, and a small little shop that are active. There is a church, and old dormitories that are still there which were in full use once upon a time. I spoke with one of the ladies that worked at the shop and she said she was previously in a station in Antarctica before she arrived to Grytviken. Can't imagine living in such extreme cold for so long.
