South Georgia had been the gateway to the Antarctic for many of the early expeditions to the continent. Ludwig Kohl-Larsen first visited the island in 1911 as a doctor on the Otto Nordenskjold expedition. Seeing South Georgia kindled in him an enthusiasm for returning to the Antarctic. He married Captain Larsen’s daughter and used his close connection with the Larsen family to return, firstly in 1924 on board the first whaling factory ship (Sir James Clark Ross) and then, in 1929, to travel around South Georgia and film the wildlife. He spent a summer camped in various parts of the island, exploring the interior on skis, collecting specimens and filming. This is the story of this private expedition, translated for the first time from the German.
