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.
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!
