Setting sail from King George Island

The relative proximity of King George Island to South America, together with the fact that around 10% of the island is ice-free, means that there are several research stations clustered here, along with an airfield. It's the biggest island in the South Shetlands archipelago, and is also home to the world's most southerly Russian Orthodox church!
