Take a voyage to the ends of the Earth, on an awe-inspiring Polar expedition to the Arctic or Antarctica. Discover an icy wilderness made up of some of the most beautiful and wild scenery you could imagine, enormous icebergs in incredible shades of blue and a range of fascinating wildlife, including Polar bears, walrus, penguins, seals and whales.
The polar regions were once reserved for ground-breaking pioneers and seasoned adventurers, but these days you can explore the poles in comfort on one of our popular expedition vessels. We travel on small ships crewed by committed staff with extraordinary levels of experience and a dedicated work ethic – these are the people who make polar holidays truly unforgettable. See our Polar Fleet page for more details of the ships that we recommend.
Join award-winning photographer Paul Goldstein onboard a photographic expedition like no other to capture thousands of King penguins through the lens. Described by the Sunday Times as ‘a preposterously vivacious guide of almost psychotic gusto’, Paul’s passion for the polar regions is unmatched – for photographers and wilderness fans these expeditions are an absolute must.
We are extremely conscious of our presence in the Polar regions. Protecting these pristine, yet fragile, environments and their wildlife is imperative. All our expeditions follow strict international guidelines and our own ‘Polar Promise’, which aims to ensure the Polar Regions are safeguarded for future generations.

A thoroughly enjoyable trip. It was a priviledge to be able to go to Antarctica, where so few actually go. Very difficult to put into words what the trip meant other than amazing. I would do the trip again.
So many pinch me moments every single day… Penguins are just incredible to see waddling along their penguin highways, spectacular whale watching, stunning icebergs. I’d go again tomorrow! Loved the camping, paddling and polar plunge. Do it all! You won’t regret it. Fabulous trip, great bunch of people, delicious food.
This trip was well organised and well run from start to finish. The ship (The Ultramarine) was very comfortable and had an excellent crew. The expedition staff were very knowledgeable and professional. This trip to Antartica was everything we hoped for, can highly recommend it.
