The Polar Regions
There are few places on the planet that have captured hearts, minds and imagination quite like the Poles. These icy destinations represent a golden age of heroes, evoking images of brave explorers with a glint of defiance and determination in their eyes’, ships paralysed by ice, hot-air balloons forging into unchartered regions and packs of huskies working to bring their masters home to safety.
Amundsen, Scott, Shackleton, Mawson, Ada Blackjack, Rasmussen, Nansen…these are just some of the adventurers who risked their lives to pioneer discovery of Antarctica and the Arctic during a period of history when national pride was of paramount importance and being the first really mattered.
Fortunately, we need not embrace the hardships of the past to experience the beauty and wonder of the Poles today. From the penguin colonies of Antarctica and the polar bears of Svalbard to the vast ice and fascinating cultures of the Northwest Passage, these otherworldly lands and their captivating creatures are now accessible to us all.
Purpose built expedition ships offer the opportunity to reach the ice in comfort and style, accompanied by highly experienced teams who will guarantee that you make the most of every opportunity during your journey.
The choice of vessels and itineraries is extensive, which is why we have used our 15+ years of experience in polar travel, our knowledge of the boats, guides, destinations and the intricate laws that accompany these voyages to select only the ones that we believe are the best.
These remarkable regions are truly astonishing, and we will ensure that your experience will be just that.
