Antarctica 2023-24

More than one of earth’s greatest wildlife havens with its hordes of penguins, seabirds and marine life, Antarctica is also a place of astonishing topography and captivating history. Impossibly giant tabular icebergs pass by, glacier snouts crumble, and the former huts of past explorers remain frozen in time. Hike, paddle, Zodiac cruise, and sail your way through this extraordinary wilderness.

Arctic 2023

A land of extremes, the vast and wild Arctic sounds the ultimate call to adventure. The remote Svalbard archipelago is the domain of the polar bear, whilst the Inside Passage is home to cautionary tales of explorers’ past. Iceland’s vast ice sheets and bubbling lava flows continue to shape this ever-evolving land, and Viking folklore lives and breathes in remote communities of the idyllic Norwegian fjords.
