Departure Date: 11/11/2019
Uncover the wild natural wonders of the Chilean fjords, get up-close and personal with wonderful wildlife in Antarctica and follow in the footsteps of great explorers in the Falkland Islands on this incredible voyage with Hurtigruten. After an overnight stay in the exciting Chilean capital of Santiago, you’ll fly to Punta Arenas to start your once-in-a-lifetime voyage onboard the MS Roald Amundsen. Explore the natural beauty of the wild and remote Chilean Fjords, before Cape Horn and a crossing of the famed Drake Passage on your way to Antarctica - the mighty frozen desert of the south. Home to endless white landscapes, teeming wildlife and fascinating history, Antarctica will take your breath away.
Landing at historic sites including Deception Island, Half Moon Island, Brown Bluff, Cuverville Island and Neko Harbour, you’ll have the chance to go hiking, take kayaks out on the water, cruise past surface-breaching whales and see the local penguins. Leaving the unique wildlife and scenery of Antarctica behind, you’ll set course for the Falkland Islands. This British territory is a world of contrasts, from the red buses and English pubs of Stanley to vast open spaces, stunning white sand beaches and rich wildlife. It really is a sight to behold. Turning back towards civilisation, spend another exhilarating day at sea completing a loop of the Magellan Strait before making landfall back in Punta Arenas. As modern-day explorers, you will encounter an unspoiled wilderness in an environmentally-friendly way as you sail aboard the state-of-the-art expedition vessel, MS Roald Amundsen. With fabulous leisure facilities, remarkable restaurants and a delightful selection of bars, cafés and lounges to choose from, you’ll be able to discover this awe-inspiring part of the world in both comfort and style. Plus, with the onboard Science Centre, exciting lectures and unforgettable tours led by the high-class Expedition team, this trip is set to be nothing short of life-changing.
