relics of the former whaling town of Grytviken. Shackleton spent a month in 1914 in this town before sailing the endurance for his planned Trans-Antarctica Expedition. The ship was crushed in the Weddell Sea. He and five men spent 18 months getting back to South Georgia to seek rescue for the rest of his 21 men stranded on Elephant Island. The town was abandoned in 1965.
