Expedition Cruises Highlights

Experience dramatic scenery dominated by snow and ice in the last unexplored place on Earth, where nature is at its most sublime and haunting. Kayak silently among the icebergs, stand in the middle of a thousand noisy penguins or listen to the melting ice and the distant echo of a calving glacier as you sleep ashore in a tent. The spectacular landscape and teeming wildlife will leave you speechless but with memories to last a lifetime. Enjoy spending time ashore, hiking, and seeing penguins, seabirds and seals up close. In the northern hemisphere see magnificent fjords, majestic mountains and impressive wilderness inhabited only by birds, seals, walruses and polar bears.

Sail in the wake of the fabled Norse settlers who travelled extreme distances more than a thousand years ago and discover fascinating Viking history as well as astonishing natural beauty. Experience the colourful, ghostly swirls of the incredible Northern Lights against a stunning backdrop of spectacular scenery. A fjord adventure is both awe-inspiring and completely fascinating where both the thrill and calm of nature can be enjoyed whilst cruising past towering mountains, basalt cliffs and a vast wilderness.

Journey from one hemisphere to another on expeditions combining tropical beaches with metropolitan city life as well as excursions into lush rainforest. Learn more about the ecology, enjoy bird watching and see the unique wildlife on hikes or from a canoe. Enjoy a unique opportunity to explore fascinating archaeological sites, intriguing histories and the mysteries of ancient, lost cultures. Cross an entire ocean and sail the waters that were once dominated by pirates, buccaneers and privateers.

Where the small expedition ships cannot go, your adventure will continue in motorised Zodiac boats for fascinating up-close trips and landings in isolated, pristine spots. Connect with your inner explorer - make landfall in a frozen wilderness and have the pleasure of leaving footprints in untouched snow and ice, touch an iceberg with your bare hands or snorkel with sea turtles in a tropical paradise.

The team of renowned hand-picked experts who accompany each expedition have visited the destinations many times and enrich every cruise. You may find yourself travelling with biologists, ethnologists, glaciologists, geologists, biophysicists, volcanologists or historians, making your journey even more memorable. Benefit from their inexhaustible knowledge during Zodiac rides and landings, in fascinating presentations and personal chats. Whether it’s the best place to spot a polar bear, or the most beautiful coral reef for snorkelling, your expedition leader is always at hand to give advice and information.

To get the energy needed to maximize the expedition experience, it’s important to eat well. After spending the day outside with amazing treats for the soul, send your taste buds on culinary expeditions with first class dishes and service. Guests enjoy truly unique and authentic experiences, with delicious, local ingredients, both from land and sea.

The desire for travel and exploration has a huge influence on the environment, the wildlife and the people who live in the places visited. Expedition cruises have a highly knowledgeable and dedicated crew who live and breathe sustainable travel and who are committed to protect, help and improve these beautiful and fragile places.
