50 Degrees North expands their operations with Hurtigruten to Antarctica
The Nordic Travel Specialist, 50 Degrees North, is excited to announce the expansion of their tour portfolio, which now includes Hurtigruten’s polar cruise expeditions to Antarctica. What is equally noteworthy, however, is the appointment of polar expert, Jill Blunsom, as their new Polar Specialist.
“This is a very exciting change for us, especially with Jill’s first-hand knowledge of Antarctica and the polar regions as well as nearly 15 years of experience in polar travel sales,”, says Tietse Stelma, 50 Degrees North’s CEO and co-founder. “We worked together at Peregrine Adventures for many years and I’m thrilled to be working on a shared project again”, adds Stelma.
50 Degrees North is already taking bookings for Hurtigruten’s new expedition cruises to Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland and the Norwegian coast for the 2020/21 travel period which is the inaugural season for the revolutionary hybrid powered and eco-friendly MS Fridtjof Nansen and Ms Roald Amundsen.
