When Do You Want To Go?

The focus of this expedition with Hurtigruten is on exploring the icy wilderness of Antarctica during its summer season, seeing its stunning landscapes and meeting some of its heart-warming wildlife.   

After a night in sensuous Buenos Aires, you’ll fly to Ushuaia to embark on the hybrid-powered expedition ship, MS Fridtjof Nansen. Your ship will then sail south and cross the Drake Passage to Antarctica. 

The icescapes and wildlife of Antarctica change with the seasons. Late spring in October and November means more snow and pristine landscapes, though whales are relatively rare. Penguins court and nest these months, with the eggs hatching into cute bundles of feathers by December and January. February and March is the peak time for whale-watching opportunities when large amounts of krill lure them to the area. Whichever time you visit, your Expedition Team will be your living, breathing encyclopaedias, sharing their extensive knowledge about the history, wildlife and science of the area. Be sure to join them in included and optional activities to really discover the secrets and magic of the frozen continent. 

Highlights

  • Explore an enchanting world of towering icebergs and ice sculptures
  • See penguin rookeries up close
  • Keep watch for Antarctic wildlife, including seals, whales and seabirds
