Highlights of Antarctica
We cross the Drake Passage to explore the most remote place on planet Earth. The Antarctic ice cap is the largest single mass of ice in the world, but amazingly, this is a wilderness teeming with life. Come ashore on landings to meet the penguins in their lively colonies or enjoy ice-cruising to spot for whales and seals in spectacular surroundings.
The elements rule in this wilderness, so our captain will work with the conditions to create the best possible itinerary for your adventure. There may be chances to join optional kayaking tours or even hike and tent in the world´s most isolated wilderness. Antarctica is unforgettable!
A starkly contrasting natural and cultural experience awaits on the Falkland Islands. Sheep graze next to penguin colonies in the countryside, while red English buses trundle by cozy pubs in the town of Stanley.
Patagonian Wildlife and Big City Life
Puerto Madryn, the gateway to the beautiful Valdez Peninsula, is our next destination. This area was named a World Heritage site by Unesco for its abundance in wildlife. At the end of our journey, you can enjoy a taste of big city life during Montevideo’s late summer days after disembarking from MS Fridtjof Nansen.
