Treasures at the Ends of the Earth
At the ends of the Earth and far from the madding crowd, the Polar Regions are perhaps the last pristine wildernesses left on the planet. They’re harsh, merciless environments of savage, eye-watering beauty. How times have changed for the Polar adventurer? These days we can take a Polar Expedition to explore the frozen polar continents in relative comfort and safety and return to our homes within 2 weeks, unlike Ernest Shackleton and his crew who took 2 years to escape its icy clutches after their ship was crushed in 1915.
The magical land of icy fjords, jagged mountains, and immense glaciers can be experienced on an Arctic adventure cruise, ski trekking, snowshoeing, field camping, kayaking, diving, mountaineering and partaking in expert photo workshops.
Icebreakers cut through the dense polar ice into access areas previously visited by only the most daring explorers. Comfortable expedition vessels glide travelers beyond the Arctic Circle through dramatic ice floes to walk in footsteps of the Vikings or marvel at the breaching of a humpback whale. A trip to the Arctic offers rare wildlife, intense natural beauty and unique cultures that have survived in one of the most extreme environments on Earth.
The North Atlantic & Arctic season between May and September enables exploration of the spectacular scenery with its fascinating flora and fauna including Polar Bears, Walruses and myriads of seabirds. The itineraries include rarely visited Scottish islands – Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland’s, the Faroes, Iceland, Jan Mayen, Bear Island, Spitsbergen, Greenland and Lofoten.
During the Southern summer months November to March vessels explore the islands of the South Atlantic, and Antarctica where towering snow-capped mountains and enormous numbers of penguins, whales, seals and seabirds offer unparalleled photographic opportunities.
With the option to experience places with so much drama, wildlife, history, and true emotion, why look any further for your next holiday adventure?
