The sophisticated yet downto- earth capital of Argentina thrives on its strong traditions: proud football fans, cultured theatre scene and seductive tango. During the day, wander past French and Italianate buildings in Recoleta, finding shade from the summer sun in the resplendent plazas and parks of Palermo where fleets of parrots and songbirds roost. At night, feast on steak in San Telmo before heading to a local bar, club or confitería on Avenida Corrientes for a late-night milonga fuelled by traditional tango dancing
Transfer to the airport for your flight to Ushuaia.
Upon arrival, transfer to the port and embark the brand new MS Roald Amundsen for your 14 night voyage of Antarctica and the Falkland Islands
Learn about the fascinating history and environmental science of Antarctica from the Expedition Team in the Science Center. On deck, keep your eyes peeled for albatross, petrels, humpback, and fin whales
The landscapes of Antarctica stretch as far as your eyes can see – a beautiful realm preserved by pristine snow and ice. Tabular icebergs, parts of the great shelves tower above the waters while ancient glaciers give birth to blue-hued icebergs that are sculpted by wind and sun. This is another world, devoid of human influence and a haven for wildlife like whales, penguins and seals.
You have five days to take in every magical moment and jawdropping scenery Antarctica grants you. This could be gazing at distant white mountains during a walk ashore or having a playful pair of Weddell seals surface next to your small explorer boat to take a peek at you with their large inquisitive eyes.
Or being in the winning lottery of those who can join optional but weather-dependent activities like kayaking, snowshoeing or even camping. These are the kinds of experiences that await you in Antarctica. Rest assured Hurtigruten plan to make the most of each landing and will choose the best sites from numerous possible locations on the Antarctic Peninsula and its surrounding islands
The Expedition Team will continue the lecture programme, covering history and the great explorers, marine biology, wildlife, oceanography and climate change. Spend some time on deck and look out for wildlife as you make your way north to the Falkland Islands
With green grass, white sands and farms, the Falklands are a world away from the barren white wilderness of Antarctica. This is a paradise for birds, like ducks, geese, albatrosses, caracaras and wrens, not to mention the four different species of penguins to found here – king, rockhopper, Magellanic and gentoo. The latter normally hang out in large colonies around the islands, which you might be able to spot from the ship or even visit during one of the landings. Stanley, the capital of the archipelago, is on the island of East Falkland and easy for the ship to access. Small enough to be explored on foot, it comes complete with familiar English red buses, inviting restaurants and pubs full of friendly locals
After exhilarating days in Antarctica and the Falklands, the final days of the voyage are spent sailing north while the temperatures rise. Relax with your fellow explorers on the outer decks, restaurants and lounges, and enjoy the Farewell dinner on the last evening
Widely considered to be the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia’s sea, mountain and forest views have captivated tourists for years.

MS Roald Amundsen is the first hybrid ship to join the Hurtigruten fleet. With new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology, she reduces fuel consumption and cuts CO2 emissions by sailing with electrical propulsion. Electrical propulsion is a great benefit to the environment and also enhances the impact of experiencing nature meaning you can travel to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.
Hurtigruten recommends pre-booking shore excursions. This can be done up to four weeks prior to departure (two weeks if paid by credit card) at the rates presented. Shore excursions are also available to book on board but spaces may be limited. Please note: all excursions booked on board will be charged in Norwegian Kroner.
There is no official dress code on board but some guests choose to change to casualwear for dinner. The weather in Norway can vary during the course of each voyage (or even during the day!) so we recommend reading our climate zone packing guide to ensure you’re ready for every possibility.
Norwegian cuisine is served on board. Chefs use only the very best locally sourced, seasonal ingredients which are collected from port each day and used to prepare a range of delicious dishes.
Specific diets can be catered for if requested in good time. Passengers on strict diets may find that there is limited choice. A 3-course vegan menu is available in the evenings on voyages of 12-days.
Most Hurtigruten ships along the Norwegian coast have an Expedition Team who undertake special activities on board such as lectures and presentations, on-deck guiding as well as hikes and outdoor activities in many ports. The majority of activities take place both inside the ships and out on deck and are designed around the season you’re sailing in. Hurtigruten aims to get guests closer to unique environments.
Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Diners Card are all accepted as payment options on board. Norwegian Kroner (NOK) is the on board currency.
Laundry rooms with washing machines, dryers and irons are available on all ships. Tokens can be purchased at reception.
The official languages on board are Norwegian and English, though some service crew also speak German. The majority of shore excursions are guided in two or three languages.
Yes, wireless internet is available on board for a small fee, unless already included in your Select or Platinum fare.
It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage. If you feel that crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.
