Cruise Holidays

Join a cruise or expedition voyage into the Arctic or Antarctic and embark on the holiday of a lifetime, travelling aboard special ice-strengthened vessels. Discover remote destinations and experience the beauty, wildlife and pristine landscapes of the Polar Regions. As the UK’s leading travel operator to the Arctic region for more than two decades, you can be reassured we’ll take care of the finer details on your Arctic voyage or cruise holiday with us.


These are adventure cruises because you are discovering areas largely untouched by man and will appeal to discerning travellers with an interest in the natural world. Our small ship cruise holidays in the Polar Regions give you the chance to travel in small groups with like minded people and visit areas larger vessels can’t access. Small groups make for a more personal experience, allow maximum time on shore (no waiting ‘your turn’!) and importantly minimise the impact on these sensitive and vulnerable environments. Onboard, friendly and informative guides will ensure you get the most out of your Antarctic or Arctic adventure.

Choose from our exciting range of Arctic voyages and small ship cruise experiences and you’ll be astonished by the Arctic wildlife you encounter from Arctic foxes and Arctic hares to whales, walrus and millions of seabirds such as guillemots, puffins and kittiwakes. With itineraries featuring Spitsbergen, Greenland, Canada and into the High Arctic you’ll cruise past exquisite ice formations and along rugged fjords on your breathtaking Arctic expedition cruise.

An Antarctic voyage offers the rare privilege of exploring the world’s least accessible continent. Cruise past towering icebergs, ice shelves and snow ridges and marvel at the unique Antarctic wildlife from the comfort of an ice strengthened small ship. Encounter whales, seals hauled out on ice floes and a wide array of bird life including the icon of the Antarctic, the penguin. Our collection of voyages takes in the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia the Falklands, the Ross Sea region and the sub-Antarctic Islands.
