Visit some of the world’s most remote and awe-inspiring destinations such as Greenland, Antarctica, Iceland and Svalbard. An expedition cruise featuring any of these unspoilt destinations is the experience of a lifetime.
A cruise to the Polar regions is anything but typical and along your voyage there’s the opportunity to spot hundreds of different species including penguins, humpback whales, seals, reindeer, walruses, arctic foxes and hares and even polar bears. For many of the ports of call, wildlife is the main highlight such as Elephant Island where elephant seals can often be found dozing on its shore, or the Falkland Islands which are home to colonies of Gentoo and King penguins.
Whilst this wild landscape is enough to sate any taste for adventure, explorers will also find it fascinating to learn about the heritage and maritime history of these villages and settlements that are often the last outpost between civilization and seemingly endless stretches of icy tundras and mountains.
These polar region cruises will provide you with unforgettable experiences, whether it’s seeing the Northern Lights for the first time, spotting a pod of whales out in the ocean or trying local dishes such as skyr in Iceland or suaasat, a traditional Greenlandic soup.
