Antarctica & Arctic
Set sail for an adventure of epic proportions on an ocean expedition. Experience the thrill of being up close to witness the crack and thunder as a glacier calves into the water in Alaska's Inside Passage; discover the azure waters, changing landscapes and prolific marine life of Central America and the Galapagos Islands; encounter gargantuan icebergs on a polar exploration; or relax and unwind aboard a tall ship as she plies the warm waters of Southeast Asia.
Grizzly bears lumber across the land, bald eagles soar through the sky, sea lions laze on floating ice and whales frolic in the icy waters. An expedition or small ship Alaskan cruise gives you the opportunity to experience all of this wildlife and more.
Straddling the equator and lying 1000 kilometres off the coast of South America, the Galapagos Islands are home to unique wildlife that has been so isolated they have no fear of humans. These ‘enchanted isles’ were the first place to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978.
There is no better way to experience the dramatic scenery of southern Patagonia than on an expedition cruise. Navigate the icy waters of the legendary Beagle Channel and Straits of Magellan, get up close to penguins and whales and listen for the tell-tale crack of calving glaciers tumbling into the sea.
Towering ice, pristine landscapes and enchanting wildlife make the polar regions a photographers dream – many
expeditions offer specialist photography departures. Emperor penguins by the thousands on South Georgia Island
or polar bears prowling in Svalbard; the iconic wildlife of the polar regions is a highlight of polar travel. Marine
mammals are active in these icy, nutrient-rich waters and birders should keep an eye on the sky for the myriad
migratory birds that visit these regions.
