Looking for a Christmas and New Year holiday with a difference?  How about joining Just You, the UK’s single traveller specialist, for an unforgettable adventure in Antarctica.

Experience awe-inspiring landscapes and nature at its most sublime during this 21-day expedition which takes in the Chilean Fjords, Antarctica, the Magellan Strait and the Falkland Islands on board the cruise ship Midnatsol.

“Just You’s Antarctic adventure is truly a once in a lifetime experience, with a cruise through the awesome Chilean fjords, stepping foot on Cape Horn and crossing the Antarctic Convergence, where the ocean becomes filled with icebergs”, said Christina Hunter-Locke, Just You’s Head of Product.

“Six days of this Just You holiday will be spent exploring the Antarctic landscape along with close encounters with the wildlife including huge colonies of penguins, fur seals and whales. Depending on the weather, there is the opportunity for landings on Half Moon Island, Deception Island and Neko Harbour,” added Christina.

Just You’s Antarctic adventurers join the cruise ship in Punta Arenas and head south along the Magellan Strait passing Isla Tucker, famous for its Magellanic penguins, birds, dolphins and sea lions. Surrounded by soaring mountains, the Chilean fjords are truly spectacular and lead to the narrow Canal Gabriel and on to the island of Cape Horn.

Christmas is celebrated at sea with a festive dinner and carols around the Christmas tree. After six days of exploring Antarctica the ship heads to the Falkland Islands where red phone boxes and English pubs await.

The adventure concludes with a cruise back along the Magellan Strait to Punta Arenas and a flight back to the UK from Santiago.

Just You’s Antarctica, the 7th Continent – a Christmas & New Year Voyage costs from £7,999 and includes all flights and transfers, 16 nights’ accommodation in individual cabins on a full-board basis on the MS Midnatsol, the services of a Just You Tour Manager and a festive dinner on board the ship on Christmas Eve.

Just You also has a wide range of festive breaks on offer, how about spending Boxing Day bathing in the soothing waters of the Blue Lagoon on Just You’s Christmas in Iceland tour with five days from £1,599.
