• Making the best better - the greatest Antarctic adventures

    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.

  • Day Eight – How to Photograph Antarctica

    Antarctica is an absolute playground for photographers. It is filled with wildlife willing to get up close and personal, amazing icebergs, and a landscaped blended between sea and glacier-covered mountains.  Getting good shots in Antarctica is easy; getting great shots takes a little bit more talent.  This is a guide to shooting photography in Antarctica.  And if you’re interested in my photography on the Continent, feel free to check out my gallery.

  • So hot right now – a digest of where to go in 2011

    It’s a January tradition – newspapers and websites pontificating on the next big thing in travel, giving readers the inside scoop on where and what is hot for the year ahead. Trouble is, it’s pretty exhausting wading your way through the welter of various “where next” lists, so, as a public service of sorts, below’s our brief digest of the hottest tips for the year ahead.

  • Day Six – The Wonder of the Seventh Continent

    Some people come to Antarctica to see the penguins, others come so that they can tell others that they’ve been to all seven continents, but no matter what their reasons for coming may have been, it is the sheer beauty of the experience that will have them talking about it for years. They call it the white continent, but it is so much more than that. It is raw and powerful, and it is guaranteed to grab your attention with its majestic beauty.

    Notching up sightings of the 'Big Five' is in the back of every African safari-goer’s mind. So, in the interests of fairness, below is our equivalent list for another wildlife wonderland – Antarctica. Whether you’re taking in the sub-Antarctic Islands, Antarctic Peninsula or to the Ross Sea, the marine and birdlife of this frigid world offer memorable moments among a mesmerising land- and seascape.

  • 10 questions for Brendan – getting to know our blogger at the end-of-the-earth

  • Bizarre landscapes

    All our trips get among landscapes that fascinate and capture the imagination. Some destinations, however, are just that little bit special in their ability to offer up the unexpected, where natural elements, and sometimes the hand of man, have worked overtime to create something that captivates because of its otherness. One we’ve recently added to our trips is Darvaza Crater in Turkmenistan, a mind-boggling open furnace in the middle of nowhere. Here’s Darvaza and a few of our other favourites.

  • North Pole Q&A With Peregrine’s Jodie Booth

    What was your best wildlife moment? 

    Definitely the first polar bear sighting! It took a few days on the ice before we saw one so the suspense was building. To finally see one was fantastic. The captain slowed the ship down and manoeuvred in the ice so we all had a great view of the bear to take lots of photos. My top tip for polar bear spotting is look for dirty ice, it may just be a polar bear!
