New Polar Trips Added For 2020 & Beyond

We’re excited to announce our new range of Polar Expeditions added for 2020 and beyond.

Explore the icy glaciers and snowy mountains of the Arctic, keeping an eye open for the continent’s unique range of wildlife, including walruses, reindeer, and polar bears. The Arctic is also your best opportunity to see the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, one of the world’s most incredible natural phenomena.

Antarctica is remote, but rich with human history. Unleash your inner explorer as you cross the legendary Drake Passage, and pay your respects at the grave of Ernest Shackleton in South Georgia. But there’s plenty of wildlife on offer too – scan the seas for leopard seals and orca whales, and witness gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins.

Greenland is one of the world’s most sparsely-populated areas, and here you’ll have the opportunity to learn about Inuit life in Itoqqortoormiit, hike Ella Island's wild tundra, and cruise through freshly birthed icebergs in Scoresbysund.

The rugged Svalbard Archipelago is Europe’s largest wilderness, home to more polar bears than human beings. Its largest island, Spitsbergen, boasts a rich array of rocky coasts, glimmering fjords and glacial structures, as well as the northernmost town of its size on Earth, Longyearbyen, a relative metropolis compared to this largely desolate region.

The extremes of the Earth are unlike any other destination, so whichever you choose to visit, you can be sure of the adventure of a lifetime. Take a look at some of our new trips below!
