At the ends of the Earth and far from the madding crowd, the Polar Regions are perhaps the last pristine wildernesses left on the planet. They’re harsh, merciless environments of savage, eye-watering beauty. How times have changed for the Polar adventurer? These days we can take a Polar Expedition to explore the frozen polar continents in relative comfort and safety and return to our homes within 2 weeks, unlike Ernest Shackleton and his crew who took two years to escape its icy clutches after their ship was crushed in 1915. Of course, in keeping with our philosophy, it is essential that we protect these polar environments. In partnership with carefully selected polar operators, we only use small expedition vessel for our Polar voyages and always apply the most stringent rules of minimum impact travel.
