This expedition takes you to the spectacular highlights of the southern hemisphere.
From urban adventure to polar wilderness
Enjoy a taste of big city life in Montevideo before embarking on MS Midnatsol. After two days at sea, we arrive Puerto Madryn, the gateway to the Valdez Peninsula. This area was named a World Heritage site by Unesco for its abundance in wildlife. Here you can encounter some of the largest marine animals in their natural environment.
A starkly contrasting wilderness and cultural experience awaits on the Falklands. Sheep graze next to penguin colonies in the countryside, while red English buses trundle by cozy pubs in the town.
We cross the Drake Passage to explore the most remote place on planet Earth. The Antarctic ice cap covers 98 % of the continent and is the largest single mass of ice in the world. This is a wilderness teeming with life. Come ashore to meet the penguins in their noisy and crowded colonies.
Join the Expedition team and explore the icy shores of Antarctica with landings to get a close look at penguins and seals, enjoy kayaking and visits to the most fascinating places. On board, interesting lectures on science and history, activities and workshops in expedition photography will take your exploration to a new and entertaining level.
We round off this adventure by spending two days crossing the Drake Passage to Ushuaia.
