Polar Tours

The polar regions were once the sole preserve of intrepid explorers such as Scott and Amundsen, along with the hardy souls that manned far-flung Antarctic whaling stations or eked out a living on the Arctic tundra. These days you can travel to the poles on board specialist expedition vessels, allowing you to explore these remarkable frozen landscapes in warmth and comfort. In Antarctica you’ll encounter abundant wildlife including whales, sea lions and vast penguin rookeries, while in the Arctic you’ll see walruses, spectacular seabird colonies and perhaps even the majestic polar bear. Travelling in the polar regions can be expensive, but it’s worth every penny: this is a real once-in-a-lifetime experience, exploring some of the last true wilderness areas on our planet.
