A truly once-in-a-lifetime destination, Antarctica is unique due to its untouched scenery of icebergs and glaciers. It’s a frozen, otherworldly landscape teeming with curious and fearless wildlife such as penguins, seals, whales and birds. En route, guests will learn about this wonderful wildlife, not to mention the region’s history of exploration. Some of Hurtigruten’s itineraries also take in the Falkland Islands and the rich wildlife of South Georgia, also known as the ‘Serengeti of the Southern Ocean’.
Hurtigruten’s fleet has among the lowest CO2 footprints of all expedition vessels in this region, with guests sailing aboard the world’s first hybrid-powered ships MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen, as well as newly refurbished MS Fram.
