Voyage Itinerary
+

Day 1: Buenos Aires

This adventure starts with an overnight stay in Buenos Aires, the bustling capital of Argentina. 

Day 2: Buenos Aires

Fly early in the morning to Ushuaia, where MS Midnatsol awaits. Once on board, we kick off our journey with a welcome-on-board dinner.

Days 3-4: Drake Passage

Prepare yourself for Antarctica as we cross the infamous Drake Passage, and trust us - it will overwhelm you! MS Midnatsol is designed to bring polar exploration to all ages and learning levels.  There will be lectures on the environment around us, films about Antarctica and the Activity Center provides the latest technology.

Days 5-14:

You are now in one of the most remote areas on earth! Venture ashore to explore the breath taking Antarctic scenery and come close to penguins and seals. You will feel like a real explorer from the moment you first set foot on the endless expanse of snow and ice. From the deck, there will be ample opportunities to sight whales. Enjoy close encounters with wildlife and glaciers, old whaling stations and relics as we sail.  

Christmas Day will be a unique mix of exciting activities amongst the ice and penguins, combined with traditional Norwegian celebrations on board.  You might enjoy a special lunch followed by a walk to the top of a snow-covered hill set within a glaciated bay. Or your Christmas gift may be a cruise amongst ice bergs followed by a visit from a certain white-bearded gentleman.

Days 15-16: Drake Passage

After exploring this exhilarating continent, we set course back to civilisation. Spend the day at sea recapping your experiences, having fun in the Activity Center or just relaxing on deck.

Day 17: Ushuaia/Buenos Aires

Sadly, every adventure must come to an end. It is time to say goodbye to the crew and all your new friends when we reach Ushuaia. We transfer you to the airport for your flight back to Buenos Aires.
