Polar Cruises

Explore the exceptional natural beauty of some of the world’s remotest regions with our exciting collection of polar cruises. Experience dramatic scenery dominated by snow and ice and get up close with fascinating wildlife.

Discover the Arctic’s land of the Midnight Sun with its vast glaciers, breathtaking scenery and fascinating wildlife. A wide selection of our cruises sail deep into the Arctic, including a once-in-a-lifetime voyage to the North Pole on an icebreaker ship that crushes through pack ice that is metres thick, ensuring a rewarding and rare expedition.

Cross the Arctic Circle, following in the wake of the Vikings and learn about their vast history, or discover the Inuit’s extraordinary culture whilst visiting remote communities.

The incredible diversity of wildlife will astound you; polar bears roam freely amongst giant blue-tinted icebergs that sparkle like diamonds; seals and walrus relax on rocky outcrops; and whales spout and breach before your eyes. Join motorised Zodiac boats and expert guides for unforgettable excursions - land in a frozen wilderness and leave footprints in untouched snow and ice, touch an iceberg with your bare hands, experience husky dog sledging through the pristine landscape or spend a night in a unique snow hotel.

The majestic mountains, spectacular cliffs and scenic fjords of Spitsbergen’s national park are home to migratory birds, reindeer, seals, arctic foxes and polar bears. Greenland adventure cruises take you to the heart of the largest island in the world, from the ice-covered extremities of the north to the staggeringly fertile green expanses of the south. We offer a superb selection of voyages along the dramatic Norwegian coastline from a range of UK ports including London Tilbury, Harwich, Newcastle, Liverpool and Hull. Enter the land of shimmering fjords, where lush green valleys are dominated by snow-capped mountains and cascading waterfalls tumble down granite cliffs.

Revel in the beauty and overwhelming power of nature in the white wonderland of Antarctica. Cruise across seas of glass, passing bizarre formations of white snow and glowing blue ice with sightings of penguins, whales, seals, elephant seals, fur seals and a variety of sea birds. Expedition ships allow you to discover worlds that remain hidden from many other ships and numerous Zodiac landings in the eternal ice of the Antarctic will leave memories that last forever.

A luxury festive expedition voyage allows you to experience Christmas in Antarctica and spend New Year’s Day surrounded by penguins. We offer a superb range of Antarctic cruises on board the best modern expedition ships like Fram and Midnatsol, and luxury ships designed for polar conditions such as L'Austral, Le Boreal and Silver Explorer.
