About Hurtigruten Christmas Eve Cruises and New Year’s Day Cruise
If you’ve ever wanted to celebrate Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day in extraordinary locales, book a cruise with Hurtigruten and experience wondrous settings and festivities for both holidays. Hurtigruten’s Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day cruise lets passengers enjoy Christmas Eve in Cape Horn and the New Year in Antarctica. Travelers get to journey to some of the most beautiful places on earth, accompanied by an expedition team that will explain everything that is being seen and offer opportunities for science education.
This cruise begins with an overnight hotel stay in Santiago de Chile, and then cruisers proceed to meet their expedition ship in Punta Arenas. The celebratory voyage takes passengers south to view soaring mountainous peaks, lush valleys filled with floral and animal life, and pristine glaciers in the Chilean Fjords. Then, the ship maneuvers its modest size through an extremely narrow Canal Gabriel to sail into the Garibaldi Fjord.
In the Garibaldi Fjord, cruisers have the chance to get on small boats to take closer looks at the two glaciers at the end of the fjord as well as any wildlife that might be around. Provided the weather is good, the ship lands on Cape Horn on Christmas day and travelers get to be merry like Norwegians with a Christmas tree and Christmas carols.
