Get ready for a rare adventure! From Ushuaia, cross the Drake Passage and sail on to an unforgettable exploration of Antarctica. Meet penguins up close and touch icebergs with your bare hands. On board there is so much to do: the Explorer room, Young Explorer programme, theme days, exciting lectures, and more, all designed to enhance your trip.
Hurtigruten is an exploration company in the truest sense of the word and our mission is to bring adventurers to remote natural beauty in distant corners of the world. Our experience in the field is unparalleled, and we draw on this unique heritage to guide our fleet of advanced expedition ships to unforgettable wilderness experiences in some of the most difficult to reach places on Earth.
Taking an expedition to Antarctica with MS Midnatsol is sure to rank among the most exciting things you’ll ever do – exploring the most remote place on earth. Join us on this adventure filled with the unparalleled highlights of Antarctica.
The adventure starts as we sail the famous Drake Passage before arriving in remote Antarctica. Things quickly become even more interesting – behind every new iceberg a new highlight appears.
The goose bump factor is huge and the wildlife of Antarctica is a chapter in itself. You will see whales, meet thousands of penguins and even some seriously cute seals. And the icebergs drift by in fantastic variety, in all shapes and colours. The horizon seems endless and blue-white, and the oceans are full of icebergs and whales. Even more awe-inspiring, we will have our first encounters with huge colonies of penguins. Most importantly, you will explore ashore and in small craft through iceberg-rich waters to feel like a real polar explorer.
Back on board, you’ll have fun opportunities to learn and share discoveries with family and new friends in a relaxed way. MS Midnatsol is a ship built and designed to meet the needs of modern explorers – both on and off board. Our explorer deck is where you can meet fellow adventurers for scientific fun with our engaging Expedition Team, no matter what age you are. The media room on board shows the highlights of the day, and if you haven’t joined an excursion or landing, you can see films and photos, and share in the adventures here at the end of each day. The children should check out our Young Explorers programme. All scientific content is presented in a lively, fun and easily understood manner – first class edutainment, so to speak.
So, join us on a voyage to the extremes of the world, on the adventure of a lifetime!
