On December 4, 2021, a total Solar Eclipse occured in the Scotia Sea around the South Orkney Islands, near the Antarctic Peninsula. This phenomenon won’t occur here again for another 400 years. Seize this rare chance and join a Hurtigruten expedition cruise to Antarctica during the total Solar Eclipse, an opportunity that arises only once in several lifetimes.


Discover further and explore more by joining activities with the Expedition Team that are included in your expedition. There are also a range of optional excursions available*.


Antarctica is home to rich biodiversity and the waters are teeming with life, from microscopic plankton to the world’s largest animal known to have lived on Earth—the blue whale.

Antarctica Adventure

Why discover Antarctica with Hurtigruten?

Fantastic adventure
Hurtigruten provides its guests unparalleled experiences in Antarctica’s polar waters, safely taking you on exciting small-boat (RIB) adventures and amazing landings to explore the most remote continent on Earth.

Unmatched wilderness
No travel adventure can match an expedition cruise to Antarctica: the windiest, driest, and most pristine continent on the planet.
Our voyages into this protected wilderness are truly unique and offer extraordinary travel experiences. We promise Antarctica is different from any other destination you’ll ever visit.

Experience a Total Solar Eclipse
In 2021, a rare Total Solar Eclipse will grace our expeditions to Antarctica, and there is no better place to see the event than from aboard our ships in the South Orkney Islands, guided by an astronomer.
