Both the Arctic and Antarctica can be explored by expedition ship. These cruises immerse you into spectacular surroundings where you have the chance to watch whales breach or wake up between blue icebergs. Vessels are equipped with zodiacs and kayaks for excursions to secluded shores and up-close wildlife interactions. This is the true nature of an expedition tour.
Land tours are another way to experience the Arctic. Stay in the comfort of an Arctic safari-style base camp exploring the wild habitat and hike upon the rugged terrain. These trips immerse travelers into this land of polar bears, native Inuit people, and the intricacies of the tundra.
Itineraries are designed to explore the best of each polar region and allow for the unexpected surprises that make each trip unique. Skilled crew change course to take advantage of unique chance encounters, like wildlife observation or a calving glacier. Below are a few of our favorite polar tour itineraries.
