Normality goes out of the window in the Poles. Shadows and the horizon disappear and throw your perspective. Ice takes on a myriad of forms and shades and is rarely white. It’s the singularity of the polar landscapes that keeps drawing our team back to the Arctic and Antarctic: polar expedition cruising is really about immersing yourself in these otherworlds. And, if you’re lucky, you’ll witness their wildlife, from whales to wandering albatrosses.
Our polar specialists have all journeyed to one or both of the Polar Regions, so you can rely on their extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to planning your polar vacation. They’ll explain what polar cruising involves, and help you decide between Antarctica or the Norwegian Arctic (Svalbard) for your maiden voyage. But be warned: the Poles are addictive. You may find yourself vowing to return.
