Spring is typically defined by blooming flowers, songbirds, and garden work. But at Hurtigruten, we know that spring also means ice, penguin thievery, and the ideal time to visit the world’s most interesting and remote continent. That’s because November and December mark austral spring in Antarctica. It’s a time of awakening and arrival, when gentoo penguin males present their partners with pebbles stolen from the nests of other penguins, and pods of humpback and southern right whales return to the abundant waters to feed. And while the ice starts to break up and recede, the snow is white and pristine, making it perfect for photographs. For Hurtigruten, austral spring is an opportunity to further our explorations even more southward, seeking out new adventures and experiences in one of the most fascinating landscapes on Earth, and we have some great itineraries during Antarctica’s spectacular austral season.
