Antarctica

Nordika Travel is proud to offer fantastic expedition like voyages to the Southern Hemisphere with our partner Hurtigruten. Hurtigruten has been offering tours to Antarctica on the specially equipped ship MS Fram for several years.  In 2016 another kids friendly ship MS Midnatsol was added, which brought Antarctica polar exploration to all ages.  These are affordable, multi-generation friendly, diverse in activity levels, and full of fun and adventure. In 2018, Hurtigruten will add a brand new ship to its fleet: the MS Roald Amundsen. This state-of-the-art vessel will feature new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.

Why Antarctica?

The most remote continent on Earth, in Pole position.
No matter where you have been and what you have seen on previous travels: Antarctica is different from anything else you will ever experience.

WILDLIFE

The awe-inspiring landscapes of Antarctica have remained virtually unchanged since the day the first explorers set eyes upon them. It is the coldest, driest, highest, and cleanest continent on Earth. There are no permanent human inhabitants, but instead it is home to millions of penguins, seals, and birds. During the austral summer, its shores are a feeding ground for thousands of whales.
You can also see shoals of penguins swimming out to sea to hunt for krill, the torpedo-like leopard seal patrolling the shorelines, and the singing humpback whale as it acrobatically breaches the water. Since the first great explorers raced each other to the South Pole, Antarctica has been the place for the more adventurous. Today, human activity is limited to tourism and science, with research stations monitoring everything from the Antarctic ecosystem to climate change, since the area is considered key to understanding the health issues of our globe.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY TOURISM

With Hurtigruten you can choose among a variety of expedition sailings on the MS Midnatsol and the smaller MS Fram. MS Midnatsol starts and ends her voyages in Puntas Arenas, so you can explore the deep fjords of Chile, see the spectacular landscapes and nature of Patagonia, visit Cape Horn, and then see all the highlights of Antarctica. With MS Fram you go on true expeditions. The ship is small, so it is the ultimate way to really explore Antarctica, taking you up close to otherwise inaccessible locations. The expedition landings take you ashore to see wildlife and historic sites close up, and also offer the chance to try several excursions and trips that will challenge you, both mentally and physically.

Beautiful, beautiful country. I cannot wait to go back.

Hi Björg,

We had a *fantastic* time in Iceland - so much so that halfway through the trip, my husband and I were "jokingly" wondering aloud what jobs we could get in Iceland so we could stay.

I want…
