Antarctica is a bucket list destination for many. Roughly twice the size of Australia, the southernmost continent is the fifth largest with its 14 million square kilometres of land mass. Most of this – 98% to be precise – is covered in ice.
It’s a once in a lifetime must-see destination due to its unique and untouched scenery of icebergs and glaciers. A frozen landscape teeming with fantastic wildlife: penguins, seals, whales and birds.
Sailing in such pristine surroundings naturally comes with a huge responsibility. Hurtigruten is committed to the highest standards of seamanship and an environmentally friendly operation. The expedition cruise specialist’s activities and reputation rests on its long tradition and experience when it comes to exploring polar waters.
Choose to sail onboard the world’s first hybrid-powered ships, MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen. Alternatively, choose the newly refurbished MS Fram. Hurtigruten offers the most sustainable choice with one of the lowest CO2- footprints of all expedition voyages to this region.
With over 10 Antarctica All-Inclusive itineraries to choose from, and Hurtigruten’s Book With Confidence offer, there’s no better time for your guests to plan the expedition of their dreams, worry-free, and at such fantastic value.
