Chimu announce exclusive Hurtigruten sale
Latin America and Polar specialists, Chimu Adventures, have today launched their exclusive Antarctica sale in partnership with world leaders in sustainable exploration travel, Hurtigruten. Chimu are offering up to 25% off Hurtigruten cruises to Antarctica, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Patagonia during the 2019/2020 season.
The sale will run between 15th May and 26th June 2019 and is available solely to Chimu clients. Potential travellers can see Antarctica and the Falkland Islands from as little as AU$7594 for a 17 day itinerary, easily one of the best value Falklands cruises currently available.
Wholesaler, Chimu Adventures, partnered with cruise liner, Hurtigruten, during December 2018; a collaboration which has seen a strong alignment of values in terms of sustainability and quality. Hurtigruten are absolute pioneers in responsible tourism; they are the first cruise liner in the world to ban all single use plastics on their voyages (removing 32 tonnes of plastic removed from their fleet) and the first in the world operating hybrid powered expedition ships. They also use biogas as fuel (leftovers from the fishing industry combined with other organic waste) on voyages where the supply is possible.
Chimu Co-founder, Chad Carey, elaborates: “Our alliance with Hurtigruten is the ideal combination of principles; we are in unison on our sustainability views and polar expertise. The exclusive discounts we are offering travellers over the next six weeks gets our partnership off to a great start. We are delighted to be able to show clients these incredible places at such competitive prices.”
The discounted expeditions are aboard the Midnatsol, the Fram and the Amundsen. The premium quality of the ships and service on Hurtigrtuten’s fleet ensures excellent lodgings, facilities and cuisine, as well as an emphasis on sustainability and education via lectures and the onboard science centre. This is where guests can learn more about the fragile polar environment and conduct their own experiments with the assistance of the ship’s biologists and geologists.
Due to ice conditions, it is only possible to visit Antarctica during the Antarctic summer between late October and late March. Most Antarctic expeditions during the 2019/2020 season have now sold out so this may be the last chance to visit the most remote corners of the world within the next year.
The vast majority of Chimu’s Destination Specialists have travelled to Antarctica and have either lived in or travelled South America extensively. This expert knowledge is used to guide clients through the various Hurtigruten options on sale, plus any South America travel arrangements pre and post cruise. Contact them here or on 1300 720 564.
