Visiting Antarctica is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience. These expedition voyages echo the journeys of great explorers such as Shackleton and Scott, where vast colonies of penguins, seals and seabirds populate a white wilderness of soaring glaciers, cliffs and icebergs, while the icy waters are home to various whales.
The Arctic is one of earth’s last pristine regions. Bordered by North America and Eurasia, with Greenland and Baffin Islands, the frozen Arctic Ocean is an expanse of fjords, jagged peaks, glaciers and icebergs. This is the realm of the polar bear and a few other species that have adapted to the extreme conditions.
