The Antarctic

Experience wildlife and nature up-close in Europe’s winter – on the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the South Orkney Islands, the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands.

The Arctic

When people talk of the Arctic, they are talking of an enormous ocean. The best travel conditions can be found in the Arctic summer from June to August. When the climate is mild and the animal kingdom is at its richest, our expedition ships will take you deep into the natural paradises of Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Spitsbergen. Deeply carved fjords, mighty glaciers as well as bizarre ice and rock formations await.
