The Ultimate Expedition Cruise

Explore the Chilean fjords before you encounter the rich wildlife of Antarctica, as we attempt to sail below the Antarctic Circle in search of true adventure. On our way home, we visit the magical Falkland Islands.

Beautiful Patagonia

This expedition cruise to Antarctica will introduce you to the natural beauty of the Patagonian fjords before crossing Drake Passage to the mighty frozen continent of Antarctica.

Massive Icebergs, teeming wildlife and fascinating history

Our voyage ventures deep into exploring stunning Antarctica – with nine days of ice-cruising, landings and activities for all levels of explorers, led by our expert expedition team.

This is true wilderness, and the captain applies his experience to creating the very best itinerary. We hope to call on beautiful spots in the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula before sailing further south with the goal of reaching the polar circle.

A world of contrasts

After Antarctica, we set course for the striking contrasts of the Falkland Islands, from the red English buses and cozy pubs of Stanley, to the vast open spaces, stunning white sandy beaches and rich wildlife of the countryside.




This is an expedition where the elements rule, and the weather, wind and ice conditions determine our final schedule. Safety is paramount and the captain decides the sailing itinerary during the voyage. This itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience, and why every expedition with Hurtigruten is unique.
