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 incredibly interesting – behind every new iceberg a new highlight appears.
The wildlife of Antarctica is oustanding. You'll see whales, meet thousands of penguins, and see some seriously cute seals. The icebergs will drift by in fantastic variety, in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The horizon seems endless and blue-white, and the ocean is full of icebergs and whales. Perhaps even more awe-inspiring, you'll enjoy encounters with huge colonies of penguins. Most importantly, you will explore ashore and in small boats 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 check out our Young Explorers Program. All scientific content is presented in a lively, fun and easily understood manner: first class edutainment, so to speak.
So join us on a cruise to the extremes of the world – on the adventure of a lifetime.
This is an expedition where the elements rule, and the weather, wind and ice conditions will determine our final schedule. Safety is paramount and the captain will decide the sailing itinerary during the voyage. Therefore, this itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience, and why every expedition with Hurtigruten is unique.
