With towering ice shelves, astounding wildlife and sublime frozen landscapes, the Polar Regions are like no other place on Earth.
Located on opposite sides of the globe, Antarctica and the Arctic are some of the most unexplored places on Earth, their extraordinary beauty and unique wildlife ideal for those seeking an unparalleled travel adventure. Antarctica, a vast frozen desert spanning 14.2 million km², is populated with mesmerising white glaciers and crystal blue waters and is home to a whole host of marine life, including penguins, whales, seals, fish, as well as several bird species. In comparison, the Arctic spans eight countries, the Arctic Ocean, and several surrounding seas, hosting an even wider variety of wildlife on land and off; you can expect to see arctic foxes, polar bears, moose, white hares, beluga whales and over 200 bird species.
These vast frozen worlds are incomparable, each offering a unique and awe-inspiring experience. Our Polar Regions specialists have travelled extensively to Antarctica and the Arctic, hand-picking the best luxury polar expedition ships that offer outstanding facilities and unique excursions. Although distant, each region can be reached via cruise ship, with Antarctic cruises departing from South America, and Arctic cruises from both Scandinavia and North America, giving travellers the chance to encounter some of the communities that reside in these remote regions.
