Our Antarctica cruise itinerary is determined by weather and ice conditions and is subject to change. Our exact itinerary will be determined by our captain as our adventure progresses. These are among the ports and experiences you’ll enjoy:
- Paradise Harbor: Paradise Harbor is named for its beauty and is home to Gentoo and Chinstrap penguins as well as Argentine and Chilean bases. Paradise Harbor is one of the two ports used for Hurtigruten's explorer cruise ship ms Fram and other cruise ships to stop on the continent. The other port is Neko Harbor.
- Cuverville Island: Heading for the Antarctic Peninsula proper, we'll see Cuverville Island, with the largest known colony of Gentoo penguins in Antarctica.
- Port Lockroy: Should your travels take you to this scenic harbor, you'll visit an abandoned British station on Goudier Island that has been converted to a museum. It offers a fascinating glimpse of life on an Antarctic base in the 1950s.
- Neko Harbor: With its gentoo penguin colony and small Argentine refuge hut, Neko Harbor is one of the few places on the Antarctic Peninsula where you may land on the Antarctic mainland (weather permitting).
- Wilhelmina Bay: Wilhelmina Bay is the scenic resting place of the Norwegian whaling ship Guvernoren, which ran aground and burned here in 1915.
- Antarctic Sound: The 30-mile-long Antarctic Sound is dubbed "Iceberg Alley." It's a startling assortment of floating ice, including mile-long tabular icebergs.
- Brown Bluff: Brown Bluff is a 2,450-foot-high cliff at the tip of the peninsula that draws Adelie and Gentoo penguins, Kelp gulls, and Weddell seals.
- Deception Island: Deception Island is a flooded volcanic caldera in the South Shetland Islands that's home to Whaler's Bay, an abandoned whaling station and former U.K. base.
- South Georgia: The alpine-peaked island of South Georgia has a variety and density of wildlife that will overwhelm even the most seasoned nature lover. The largest king penguin colonies in the world are flanked by groups of fur and elephant seals. You will also see long abandoned whaling stations and experience a poignant highlight for many a visitor, the grave of Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton.
- Falkland Islands (Malvinas): Thanks to a unique sub-Antarctic eco-system, more than 70 animal and bird species live on these islands. The landscape is majestic, with cliffs and gentle beaches. We will explore the north-west part of the Falklands, then continue to Port Stanley, the islands' capital, which makes a wonderful starting point for various excursions in the area. You can choose to take an optional excursion or explore the town on your own.
- Lecture series every day throughout your cruise: Learn about the rare and fascinating flora, fauna, history, and geology of Antarctica during lectures from onboard naturalists.
- Participate in a photography workshop the ship, learning how to best capture the wonders of nature.
