The landscapes of Antarctica and the Arctic can sometimes seem inaccessible; which is perhaps why the polar regions are lesser-visited destinations, even though they appear on most adventurous travellers’ wish lists. As our expert travel consultants are not only trained in the region, but have also visited themselves, you can be sure their advice will hit the mark.
Find out what staying in an ice hotel is really like, and how best to search for polar bears in the Arctic, or learn about the range of ice-breakers ships and what would best suit your needs in a trip to Antarctica – the end of the Earth.
We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
