A surprising high point of the trip was our visit to Port Lockroy, a former British military base that has been restored and now operates as a museum. It is located in a sheltered harbor off the coast of Wiencke Island, discovered in the 1800s. Norwegian whalers established a floating factory here in 1911, and whaling remained at Port Lockroy until 1931.
