Polar Region in detail

Vast and spectacular, and covered in ice pack for most of the year, the Antarctic is a wildlife lovers dream. Magnificent scenery, icebergs and historic sights, make for an unforgettable Arctic cruise experience. Explore the unspoilt wilderness which is home to polar bears, penguins, seals, whales and whole bird colonies.

Travel in the winter and seek the Northern Lights or take a cruise to the Land of the Midnight Sun in Norway – a natural phenomenon which means that the sun does not set during summer months. Being the highest, driest and coldest continent on the planet, the High Arctic is best explored from July to September as the ice recedes.
