Day 14: Little England
Location : Falkland Islands
You are now in one of the most remote areas of the world! Go ashore to explore the impressive Antarctic scenery, penguins, and fur seals. From deck there are lots of chances of seeing whales as well. Enjoy close encounters with wildlife and glacier and discover old whaling stations and their relics. While in Antarctica, we will attempt to land at several sites. You will see the South Shetlands and Cuverville Island, home to a large colony of chinstrap penguins. Among the places we will try to see and explore are Neko Harbour, beautifully located in the innermost part of Andvord Bay; Paradise Harbor, which got its descriptive name from the whalers during the last century; and Wilhelmina Bay, or 'Whale-mina Bay', as it is called, due to its spectacular scenery and humpback whales visiting in December. Weather, wind and ice conditions dictate our program and schedule. Safety is always the first priority and the captain will decide the final sailing schedule during the voyage. Join the expedition team and explore Antarctica on landings in great surroundings that take you close to thousands of penguins and seals, and enjoy kayaking and visits to the most interesting places. On board we offer several lectures and 'scientific experiments' for our young guests who participate in Hurtigruten's Young Explorers Program.
