coastal and expedition specialist Hurtigruten said it will add another ship to
do itineraries in Antarctica.
September 2016, Hurtigruten will operate the Midnatsol on 10 new itineraries
starting from Punta Arenas, Chile.
Most of the
itineraries will combine with cruising in Chile’s fjords and the Antarctic
Peninsula, Hurtigruten said. The line will
also operate the Fram on Antarctic cruises from Ushuaia, Argentina.
said the number of seasonal berths it offers in the Antarctic will increase
from 2,268 to 6,800 as a result of the move.
the 15- to 18-day voyages on the Midnatsol range from $5,999 to $6,666 per person,
