Based on its record sales growth in 2014, Hurtigruten is convinced that the popularity of its Antarctica voyages is directly related to a demand for travel that provides both remarkable moments and memories.
Hurtigruten is offering the “Great Antarctica Expedition” in 2015, with the 20-day adventure set to depart on Nov. 29. Fares for the trip range from $11,783 to $21,579 per person, double. The same itinerary is available for Nov. 27, 2016.
Gordon Dirker, managing director for Hurtigruten USA, observed: “For years Antarctica was perceived as an extreme, inaccessible and expensive destination and was only on the most ardent traveler’s bucket list.”
But Dirker continued: “Over those same years, Hurtigruten has worked hard to make it easier and more affordable and in so doing, has made it an achievable bucket list possibility for the average traveler. Coming home from an Antarctica vacation with photos of penguins and whales and icebergs the size of buildings, and memories that you will share for years, is an incredible experience.”
Departing from Buenos Aires aboard Hurtigruten’s MS Fram, “The Great Antarctic Expedition” winds its way through the isolated Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the South Orkneys before exploring the great “white continent” during early Austral summer, one of the most advantageous times of year to witness the natural splendor and enchanting wildlife of Antarctica.
