Chilean Fjords, Antarctica and Falklands – Great Explorers and Wildlife

Travel in harmony with the elements to the White Continent. En route, you will experience the wild natural wonders of the Chilean fjords. Once in Antarctica, the sight of mighty glaciers calving into the ocean, and flocks of penguins and whales in the icy seas will create indelible memories. On board there is so much to do: learn and discover in the Activity Center, attend exciting lectures, and more, all of which are designed to enhance your trip.

From the Steep Mountains and Valleys of the Chilean Fjords to Close Encounters with Antarctic Wildlife

Starting in Punta Arenas, this expedition will introduce you to the natural beauty of Patagonia before crossing Drake Passage to reach Antarctica and the mighty frozen desert of the south.

Endless White Landscapes, Teeming Wildlife, and Fascinating History

In Antarctica, we will land at historic sites such as ring- shaped Deception Island, a major harbor for whaling ships until 1905. Or Cuverville Island, home to one of the largest known colonies of chinstrap penguins, and the British station Port Lockroy from World War II, and Wilhelmina Bay, often called ‘Whale-mina Bay’, because of the large number of humpback whales spotted here. Brown Bluff is recognizable by the 2,460 foot high cliffs that dominate the landscape. Our landings offer you the opportunity to go hiking, kayak among the icebergs, cruise among whales breaching the surface, and meet the local penguins. As modern-day explorers, you will encounter an unspoiled wilderness in an environmentally friendly way as you sail aboard our state-of-the-art expedition vessel.

A World of Contrasts

Then we set course for the Falkland Islands. In this British territory, you will find a world of contrasts, from the red buses and English pubs of Stanley to vast open spaces, stunning white-sand beaches, and rich wildlife.

Back on board, you’ll have fun opportunities to learn and share discoveries with family and new friends in relaxed way. MS Roald Amundsen is a ship built and designed to meet the needs of modern explorers – both on board and ashore.  Our Activity Center is suitable for all ages, and where you can meet fellow adventurers for scientific fun with our engaging expedition team. All scientific content is presented in a lively, fun, and easily understood manner. The media room on board shows the highlights of the day, and even if you haven’t joined an excursion or landing, you can see videos and photos, and share in the adventures here at the end of each day.
