Solo travelers are constantly paying more to enjoy traveling without a companion. Hotel and cruise rates are almost exclusively built around couples. Or people traveling together. The entire cruise industry prices cruises and expeditions per person, but always based on double occupancy. Some cruise lines have introduced solo studios on select ships. Yet, these are often interior rooms and lack the glitz and glamour of a luxurious vacation. For a limited amount of time, solo travelers can rejoice as there is No single supplement currently on select 2022 expeditions to both the Galapagos and Antarctica! The solo supplement sale does end on June 28, 2022 though, so there is a limited amount of time to take advantage of this deal. Contact me today, to hop on this deal.
The Antarctica And Galapagos Deals
Are you ready to travel again? Ready to go some where that most people never have the chance to explore? Both the Galapagos and Antarctica are open for travel again! Most ships still require a Covid vaccine for boarding, but gone are the days of having to test before returning home to the States. Making the entire experience easier. For those who are traveling solo, Hurtigruten offers a reduced solo supplement on select sailings. Usually, solo traveler pay a 100% surcharge. But if you act quick, you can save thousands by opting to travel in 2022. For couples or non-solo travelers, Seabourn is offering an amazing deal too. Seabourn is offering 5 star ultra luxury Antarctica cruises for less than $11,000 per person when booked early. Yet, for those solo travelers out there, this is among the best deal of the year.
No Solo Supplement Antarctica
If you are looking to travel to Antarctica, Falkland Island, or South Georgia; this is among the best and most affordable premium option on the market. Especially for solo travelers. Hurtigruten offers a mix of expeditions to the great white continent. See penguin colonies in South Georgia and Seal Pups in Antarctica, all while saving.
The most common expeditions to Antarctica starts and ends in Buenos Aires. Charter flights are included and you get 5-7 days exploring Antarctica and then 2 days at sea both directions across the Drake package.

No Solo Supplement Galapagos
The Galapagos should be on everyone’s bucket list. Following in Darwin’s steps, explore the well preserved Galapagos islands. A true wildlife lovers paradise. Experience and interact with animals found no where else in the world. Basking in their natural environment, find tortious, Marine iguanas, Blue-footed boobies, and Galapagos Penguins. Expeditions to the Galapagos are fully inclusive including flights to and from the islands, rest days before the expedition in Quito, and all activities included in the cost. Enjoy small ship cruising with less than 90 people as you explore this almost untouched piece of the world.
Like the rest of the world, the Galapagos is a place where it’s rare to get a private cabin as a solo traveler. Unless you don’t mind paying double. Luckily, Hurtigruten is extending their solo supplement sale to the Galapagos islands on most 2022 sailings. Choose between a 7 or 9 day vacation and explore Quito or just the islands. All-inclusive Galapagos tours start at just $$7,379. There are several dates available from July 20 – December 31, 2022.

As a travel agent I am constantly looking out for the best deals and luxury experiences to offer my guests. I have wrote about Hurtigruten before. I personally like Hurtigruten due to their environmentally sustainable initiatives. From zero single use plastic to the first hybrid electric ship in Antarctica. There’s a ton to like about this Scandinavian company. They are one of the few companies offering expeditions to solo travelers without high mark ups. It’s rare to see the Galapagos or the 7th continent on sale with zero solo supplement. Yet, I guess as travel picks up, there are still deals to be found. Even beyond these locations, there are no solo supplement offers to several other destinations by Hurtigruten. Contact me today for more information.
Best yet, Hurtigruten is offering a book with confidence guarantee. For new bookings made before June 30, 2022, you can change your voyage dates free of charge to sail later in 2022 or 2023. This can be for whatever reason—even if unrelated to COVID-19.
So ask yourself, are you ready to explore the world with Hurtigruten? From Iceland to Greenland, up and down the Norwegian Coast all the way to Polar bears in Svalbard; Hurtigruten is going to take you on an incredible premium expedition that you cannot experience with the larger ships.
