Half Moon Island, South Shetland Islands

Half Moon presents many photographic opportunities with its wildlife posed against scenic backgrounds and Antarctic highlights. Weather and conditions permitting you may enjoy a hike passing the Teniente Camara Station and on to a view point that is a popular place to look for whales in the bay facing towards the Bransfield Strait. 

Yankee Harbour, South Shetland Islands 

The main attraction for many visitors is Yankee’s terraced Gentoo penguin colony with an estimated 4,000 breeding pairs. Predatory skuas also nest here and travellers are often witness to the struggle between a penguin protecting its young and a skua trying to feed theirs. 

Neko Harbour 

The bay is surrounded by mountains and alpine glaciers where its wildlife provides the perfect photo opportunity. Neko is one of the very few places on the Antarctic Peninsula where one can come ashore on the Antarctic mainland. On land there is a colony of Gentoo penguins. 

Cuverville Island 

Here lie the islands of Danco and Cuverville, the latter being home to one of the largest known colonies of chinstrap penguins. The shallow water between the islands often causes icebergs to become stuck here, offering a fantastic spectacle when it occurs.

Overview


FREE STANLEY HIGHLIGHTS TOUR

A local guide will give you an introduction to the Falklands’ small capital. As the coach drives along Ross Road, Stanley’s main Street which runs along the sea front, the guide will point out everything that may be of interest, including the Cathedral with its Whale Bone Arch, the 1982 Battle Memorial and wrecks of the old sailing ships. 

The guide’s commentary and stories will provide additional insight about the Falklands’ Heritage, social habits and economy. You will also be taken out of the town and will be able to see a stunning view of Stanley and the shipwreck of the Lady Elizabeth from the edge of the harbour. 

Finally you will have the opportunity to visit the Museum at Britannia House to learn all about the Falklands’ interesting Maritime and many other aspects of local history before returning to the ship or the drop off point at the Jetty Visitors Centre.

The Ship


The name Midnatsol (Midnight Sun) is something to live up to, and this ship, dedicated to the Norwegian summer, does just that. The interior’s bright, colourful décor is inspired by the warm sunny climate, a motif also reflected in the many pieces of Norwegian modern art on display. MS Midnatsol was put into service on 15 April 2003 and is the fourth Hurtigruten ship to bear this name. The ship has a strong environmental profile and a modern design, with Norwegian materials used extensively throughout its interiors. Together with her sister ship, MS Trollfjord, MS Midnatsol is among the newest in the fleet. What characterises both ships is the large, two-storey panorama lounge above the bow and the large glass expanses that allow natural light to enter as well as providing extraordinary views. There are also 23 beautifully appointed suites, some of which have a balcony.

MS Midnatsol


Launched: April 2003 | Occupancy: 1,000 passengers

Tonnage: 16,151 tons | Length: 445 ft (135.64 m)
