This expedition takes you to the spectacular highlights of the southern hemisphere.

From Urban Adventure to Polar Wilderness

Enjoy a taste of big city life in Montevideo before embarking on MS Midnatsol. After two days at sea, we arrive Puerto Madryn, the gateway to the Península Valdés. This area was named a UNESCO World Heritage site for its abundant wildlife. Here you can encounter some of the largest marine animals in the world in their natural environment.

Fabulous Falklands

A starkly contrasting wilderness and cultural experience awaits on the Falklands. Sheep graze next to penguin colonies in the countryside, while red English buses trundle by cozy pubs in the town.

Mind-Blowing Antarctica

We cross the Drake Passage to explore the most remote place on planet Earth. The Antarctic ice sheet covers 98% of the continent and is the largest single mass of ice in the world. This is a wilderness teeming with life. Go ashore to meet the penguins in their noisy and crowded colonies.

Join the expedition team and explore the icy shores of Antarctica on landings to get a close look at penguins and seals, and enjoy kayaking and visits to the most fascinating places. On board, interesting lectures on science and history, and activities and workshops in expedition photography will take your expedition to a new and entertaining level.  

We round off this adventure by spending two days crossing the Drake Strait to Ushuaia.
