A polar expedition is an experience like no other. Whether you choose to visit the extremes of the north or south, you can expect to be amazed by the power of nature as you travel past towering glaciers, icy fjords and spectacular polar landscapes.
In the north, polar bears rumble past resilient wildflowers on the tundra in the summertime, and the Northern Lights dance in the sky during winter. Meanwhile, the south offers opportunities to spot varieties of penguin, cross the polar circle and learn more about this fascinating, frozen region with experts on board.
Wherever you choose to travel, it’s the closest you may ever get to exploring another planet.
