Travel with MyHoliday2 on an All Inclusive Hurtigruten Antarctica Expedition and explore this wild and wonderful frozen continent. See penguins, whales and seals in their natural habitat on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. See endless ranges of snow-coated mountains and the majesty of iceberg sculpted by sun, wind, and waves. Go on landings ashore, on small boat cruises, kayaking, snowshoeing, camping, and maybe even a polar plunge. Hurtigruten’s ships to Antarctica combine hybrid technology, helping us have the lowest possible CO2-footprint as possible.
Starting in Buenos Aires, you will fly to the southernmost town of Ushuaia to embark on your voyage. From here sail for two days into Antarctica across the infamous Drake Passage. Once in Antarctica, you’ll be surrounded by icy waters, glaciers and icebergs as big as cathedrals. You will feel like you’ve landed in a completely new world. Antarctica is magnificent, mesmerising and massive. You might need to stop for a moment to be able to take it all in. That awe-inspired silence is inevitably broken though when you see the first signs of wildlife like penguins, whales or seals and enthusiastic cheers erupt spontaneously all across the ship.

Accommodation in an outdoor polar cabin on board a custom built expedition ship with all the mod-cons. 2 Nights in Buenos Aires before and 1 night after the expedition.
