There's no way to describe in words how it feels to be next to a five-story iceberg when it cracks and falls into the ocean. Or to come face-to-face with penguins padding across crisp snowfields stretching out upon the only continent uninhabited by man. Simply put, it's life-changing. And you can experience it all with Hurtigruten.

Experiencing the Great White Continent in person is like nothing you've ever done before. Antarctica is the only place on earth where you'll find the continent as it was when the first explorers discovered it. It's an exclusive opportunity that you'll never, ever forget.
Experiencing the Great White Continent Before It's Gone
You would think that as the only continent with no human inhabitants, Antarctica would be more of a hostile, uninviting environment. On the contrary; this alluringly remote wilderness is literally teeming with life, from stout chinstrap penguins and elephant seals to the majestic humpback whales that glide below the ocean's surface along the Antarctic coastline during the austral summer. It's the only place in the world where you'll find this group of animals in their natural habitat.
Travelers journey to this hauntingly beautiful corner of the earth to encounter the peaceful, white world of Antarctica, as well as the South Atlantic Islands. Here, you can observe the largest colonies of King penguins in South Georgia – nicknamed the "Serengeti of the Southern Ocean." Once you cross into the Antarctic Circle and see some of the most surreal Antarctic Peninsula landscapes on the planet, you'll never look at the world the same again.
Your Own Antarctic Journey
With Hurtigruten, you can explore the Great White Continent aboard the MS Fram, one of the most advanced expedition ships ever built. Hurtigruten has more experience traveling in polar waters than any other operator, making its first voyage to Svalbard in 1896. The MS Fram was built with comfort in mind – sailing the waters of Antarctica with emphasis on relaxation and discovery, not commercial entertainment. Onboard, you'll hear engrossing presentations and lectures on the history, biology and geology of wherever your ship is headed.
