Do you like very long voyages and eating steak tartare while getting battered about in the Roaring 40s, Furious 50s, and Screaming 60s? If so then Hurtigruten Expeditions, has a deal for you! Today the company announced an epic 93-day Pole to Pole cruise – exploring Alaska, the Northwest Passage, Greenland, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, South America, and Antarctica – all in one monumental voyage.
August 8, 2022, will mark the start of an epic 93-day adventure on board the battery-hybrid powered MS Roald Amundsen. This is the first of two new pole-to-pole itineraries, with MS Fram setting sail for an epic 66-day expedition cruise from the Arctic to Antarctica a little over a month later.
Hopefully, this voyage goes better than last year’s Arctic adventure aboard the Amundsen when 40 people tested positive for COVID-19.
The two new itineraries will include some of the world’s most beautiful and remote places in Antarctica, Canada’s Northwest Passage, the Chilean Fjords, and Greenland, as well as crossing through the Panama Canal. The voyage also includes rarely visited islands along the Alaskan Peninsula and the deserted St. Matthew Island, one of the most isolated places in Alaska.
Along the southbound journey, stops will include Belize and Nicaragua before the Panama Canal and exploring the South American coastline. The full itinerary can be found here.
Prices for this adventure will start at $64,581 per person.
