• Tips for photographing the Arctic

    In so many ways The Arctic is overwhelming.  It is simply huge in scale, and in many cases travellers into the region can be made feel like they are little ants in a world of snow, ice, and water. It is also such a foreign place to most, as very few people live in a world anything close to resembling the Arctic.

  • Put yourself in this picture

    We posted this image on Facebook recently, and invited our fans to play our new game, Picture Yourself With Peregrine. We also asked if they could picture themselves in the Arctic.

    Here's a few of the responses from those who have been, and those who are still dreaming of their adventure:

  • On your marks, get set, race around the world!

    Get your running shoes on and try a race with a difference. Around the world there are some fascinating, interesting and unusual races happening all the time. So get fit, raise money and make some memories along the way.

    Visiting Iceland? Why not be a part of Mi?næturhlaup, otherwise known as the Midnight Run? It kicks off at 10:00pm with 3 kilometre, 5 kilometre and 10 kilometre options.

  • Penguins & polar bears: Same same but different

    They both love to swim, they both love to eat fish and they both thrive in some of the harshest climates in the world. But the penguin and the polar bear are destined never to meet.

    Living at opposite ends of the world, penguins and polar bears have made very different homes for themselves. And let's face it, if the two were to inhabit the same place we would very soon end up with some very fat polar bears and a rapidly declining penguin population.

    A voyage south to explore Antarctica’s frozen wastes truly deserves the overused ‘holiday of a lifetime’ description. From the graceful hulks of vast blue-ice tabular icebergs to the wildlife encounters, to the light itself, Antarctica is a life-altering destination, capable of recalibrating the sense of wonder at the world in even the most jaded and weary of travellers.
