This 15-day journey begins in Santiago, Chile, and includes your flight to Punta Arenas, where you will board Hurtigruten’s newly refurbished MS Midnatsol! You’ll cruise through the Chilean Fjords, past Cape Horn and on to the Antarctic Peninsula for 6 days of on- and off-ship exploring. There will be opportunities to step foot on the continent; mingle with penguins, obsess e whales and seals, take unforgettable walks, and participate in naturalist-elf programming. This cruise is appropriate for anyone and any activity level.

Why Antarctica? 
Well there’s a lot more going on down there than you might think. There’s no government, but there is a treaty. It’s cold and covered with ice and snow, but it’s a desert. There are volcanoes, icebergs and a 16,000 ft. mountain peak. It wasn’t really discovered until 1820. And despite its bleak appearance, there is vast biodiversity. And penguins!! Perhaps the most surprising part of Antarctica is its accessibility. Ever year more and more people are discovering this otherworldly place. And now you can too!

A bon-voyage reception was held at Norway House on Thursday, March 3 celebrating the appointment of Minnesota attorney Sam Heins as the new Ambassador to Norway! Sam, his wife Stacey Mills, along with his 97 year old mother were honored by a group of Norwegian American leaders, college presidents, political leaders including Governor Dayton, and Norway House supporters. After a lengthy approval process, Ambassador Heins fills the position that has been vacant for nearly 900 days. Senator Amy Klobuchar was instrumental in moving the process along to final approval. We look forward to frequent updates from the Ambassador and his wife about their time in Norway. We know that all Americans will be well represented by their leadership.

The Norwegian-American community gathered on February 13th at Norway House to celebrate the nomination of Samuel Heins as US Ambassador to Norway. Senator Amy Klobuchar welcomed the new Ambassador after 869 long days pending in congress. Speaking on Heins, Ms. Klobuchar stated, “Minnesota is home to more people of Norwegian heritage than anywhere except Norway itself, so it is only fitting that the new ambassador hails form our state.”
