In our travel diaries, we take you along on our expeditions and provide intensive insights even before you travel. Have fun exploring!

The Antarctic

The experience is the destination, and each one opens up a new chapter of the Antarctic: glacial islands, deep fjords, gigantic wildlife colonies and ice-covered waterways in a legendary region. 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. Embark on the journey of a lifetime.


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.


South and Central America / Amazon

A natural treasure chest of exotic creatures, lush jungle and snow-covered volcanic cones – South and Central America thrill with their interplay of contrasts. Untouched native villages and relics of ancient civilisations create cultural high points on expeditions along the Amazon, through Chile’s fjord world and on both sides of the Panama Canal. A colourful land of adventure awaits!
