Polar Regions Cruises
Embark on the voyage of a lifetime and explore some of the world's most remote corners on a Polar regions cruise.
For travellers searching for a voyage with a difference, a Polar Regions cruise could be the perfect choice for your next holiday. Choose a sailing that encompasses either the highlights of the Arctic or Antarctica and relax aboard your luxury vessel, admiring the breathtaking scenery as your ship glides through pristine icy waters.
A cruise to the Arctic Circle offers a wide selection of possible itineraries and ports of call. Choose a sailing that incorporates the very best of Greenland and Iceland, where you can experience for yourself, the world-famous outdoor thermal baths. Enjoy the colourful delights of summertime in Greenland as lush fauna blankets the landscape.
Alternatively, select a cruise that features the much-loved Norwegian Fjords. Visit Honningsvaag Norway’s northernmost city, and the most northerly point in mainland Europe. Meet, and discover more about the culture of the native Lapp people. Be startled by the majestic and soaring scenery as your cruise ship traverses the calm Norwegian waters. Finally, soak in the spectacle that is the midnight sun, as you gaze in the small hours at your tranquil surroundings, silently illuminated by the low-lying sun.
Perhaps instead you will choose to embark on an exclusive expedition to the less visited Southern Pole. Taking a cruise to the continent of Antarctica is truly a once in a lifetime experience. You will join your cruise ship in Argentina before crossing the Drake Passage to Antarctica for some of the world’s most exciting scenery. Here you will observe rolling white plains and majestic mountains of ice as you are transported through the region’s freezing waters.
Much like its northern counterpart, Antarctica offers the chance to enjoy a midnight sun in summertime. Enjoy this highlight of the voyage by relaxing on deck and watching the clean white expanses glisten under the early morning rays. Arguably the biggest thrill for visitors to the Southern Pole, however, is the amazing variety of wildlife. Make the most of your expedition by learning about what the environment around you is home to, from a lecture given by an Antarctica expert on board. With this new knowledge, a whale-spotting adventure is a necessity!
Whether you choose to sail to the North or the South Pole, your polar voyage is certain to be an unforgettable trip, filled with unique tales to treasure and share with loved ones back at home. For those looking for a cruise with a difference, a visit to a polar region could be the perfect choice. Unrivalled scenery, picturesque vistas, and unspoilt surroundings combined with a selection of the planet’s rarest wildlife, make these cruises ideal for those keen to embark on a sailing adventure with a difference.
