Taking a cruise to Antarctica is expedition holidaying at its very best. The serene, almost motionless water, snow-dusted peaks and extraordinary wildlife are what make these lands so very special. It’s simple, but it’s unequivocally magical.


The Arctic is a frozen sea mass surrounded by land, while in the Antarctic thickly packed ice covers a vast continent surrounded by oceans. In winter, the expanse of Antarctica almost doubles as sea ice forms around the rocky coast. The Arctic’s proximity to the northern extremes of the American, European and Asian continents means that it is easier to access than the Antarctic and mankind has found a way to exist here.

Greenland, the world’s largest island, is home to numerous fjords waiting for you to discover. Surround yourself in natural wonders, discover local legends and enjoy a rush of adrenaline as you whizz across crisp, fresh snow.

At opposite times of the year, both Antarctica and the Arctic endure a winter of almost permanent darkness, followed by a summer of near 24 hour daylight. The optimum time to visit on a Polar cruise is in their respective summers. For an exhilarating Arctic daylight experience, go between June and September when the pack ice recedes, however, the cruising season extends into deep winter for those wishing to experience the aurora borealis – the magical Northern Lights that flicker and flounces across a backdrop of white snow below and black sky above. Antarctic cruise adventuring is at its most rewarding from November to March.


Discover the amazing capital of one of the world’s most resourceful nations. Falkland Islands is proudly self-governing yet fiercely British and its inhabitants are among the most interesting people you will ever encounter, thriving despite their isolate and disputed political status. Falkland Islands are a magnet for the most adventurous world travellers, and with the possible discovery of oil offshore set to become the richest nation on earth. Almost three-quarters of islanders live in the capital of Stanley, which is surprisingly lively and cosmopolitan given its modest size.

Small enough to walk around yet large enough to retain your interest, Stanley is a fascinating place to visit. It offers a fantastic base from which to explore South Atlantic wildlife up close and offers the opportunity to take in amazing astronomical sights and experience rugged natural beauty.
