… Anne-Margaretha in corona time…
Last update: Unfortunately, Norway will keep the borders closed to foreign tourists until August 20 ..! Only Sweden, Finns and Danes are welcome (under strict conditions).
This means that we have to permanently cancel all trips of the 2020 season.
This is a great pity for all the people who were looking forward to our travels and for us as well.
We’ve looked at all sorts of options recently and welcomed so much positive and uplifting response from many of you! That really did us good!
This summer will look different, but we have already prepared the Sailing Program for 2021.
We remain optimistic about the future and thank everyone who has supported us so much in this!
Please stay healthy and happy until next year!
Greet and Heinz
Sail your dreams
NEW: SAILING PROGRAM 2021
ANNE-MARGARETHA Arctic Expeditions specializes in travel to the polar regions:
Antarctica, Spitsbergen (and Franz Joseph Land) in the Arctic have stolen our hearts! In our beautiful ship we travel through this white landscape surrounded by the animals that live there. We and our friendly and hospitable crew welcome you to an unforgettable trip on our beautiful, sturdy and safe sailing ship!
In Spitsbergen, curious whales swim alongside and under the Anne-Margaretha, walruses sidle up, thousands of birds chatter away in crowded rookeries, their breeding grounds, and we are awed by the beautiful polar bear, sometimes with one or two cubs! Everyone falls silent amidst the magnificent white to dark blue glacial ice gleaming under the ever present sun.
The majestic snow-powdered mountains of Spitsbergen, where Willem Barents had been so impressed by the sometimes unreal silence …. All that makes us yearn long for this far north.
On the other side of the world, we have been privileged many times to visit Antarctica!
“I’m not here for the penguins, though! Only just for nature,”
we have heard several times from guests at the beginning of another journey to Antarctica … And these same people are often take the most pictures of the always funny penguins… “Indescribable” is the encounter with foraging humpback whales, who so beautifully exhibit their powerful tail while diving! Orcas who see the Anne-Margaretha as a toy and give us quite a scare on the left and right of the ship as they suddenly pop up! Leopard seals are so bold that they threaten to bite our mooring lines. Your photos of Antarctica will be more beautiful than you could have ever imagined and will provide impressive memories of this voyage. How can you now tell your family and friends about what you’ve seen. Words fail to describe!
We will offer our guests an unforgettable trip on a beautiful sturdy and safe sailing ship with a friendly and hospitable crew!
