The most remote continent on Earth is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. This short video tells you all you need to know before travelling to Antarctica.

Roughly twice the size of Australia, the continent is the fifth largest with its 14 million square kilometres of land mass. Most of this – 98% – is covered in ice. As a result, there are neither permanent residents nor native inhabitants in Antarctica. However, about 4000 people stay on scientific bases in the short summer period and around 1000 in total during the winter months. Additionally, around 30 000 tourists visit during the Antarctic summer from December to March.

MS Roald Amundsen (2019) and MS Fridtjof Nansen (2020) are the world’s first hybrid cruise ships. They lead the way towards an even more sustainable way of travelling. Emissions and noise are cut by sailing with electrical propulsion – good for the atmosphere and the sea life. Innovative sustainable technology reduces fuel consumption and CO2-emissions on the ships by 20 percent. The ships are specially constructed for voyages in polar waters, so you can glide silently past icebergs and wildlife.

All cabins are outside, 50% have private balconies and some suites feature their own outdoor hot tub. Facilities also include 3 restaurants, Science Centre, Explorer Loung, gym and wellness centre including a sauna, outdoor Observation Deck with infinity pool and hot tubs.
