Highlights of the Frozen Continent Special Offer

Explore the highlights of Antarctica, with opportunities to see penguins, seals and whales up close on Polarcirkel boat trips, hike on the ice and kayak among awe-inspiring icebergs. Visit the on-board Science Center for exciting lectures and activities to enhance your trip.

Discover the colourful capital of Argentina with an overnight hotel stay in Buenos Aires, where an optional city tour showcases the highlights, then fly to Ushuaia to board Midnatsol. Cross the legendary Drake Passage whilst taking part in lectures and watching films about the frozen landscape. Arrive in the most remote place on Earth, Antarctica, and enjoy visits ashore with the Expedition Team to see huge penguin colonies and perhaps discover the icy landscapes by kayak. See majestic icebergs, dramatic glaciers and abandoned whaling stations.

Depending on the weather conditions possible landings include the volcanic Deception Island and Cuverville Island, home to a large colony of gentoo penguins, and Wilhelmina Bay which is home to a large number of humpback whales. After discovering the white landscape of Antarctica, Midnatsol crosses the Drake passage back to Ushuaia for a return flight to Buenos Aires.
