South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (SGSSI) is a British Overseas Territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is a remote collection of islands, consisting of South Georgia and a chain of smaller islands known as the South Sandwich Islands.
The South Sandwich Islands are uninhabited, and a very small non-permanent population resides on South Georgia.
Reportedly, there are no scheduled passenger flights or ferries to or from the territory, although visits by cruise liners to South Georgia are increasingly popular, with several thousand visitors each summer. (ANI)
