Antarctica is one of the last few places that carries on in its natural state. Venturing to the southernmost tip of the planet, watch penguins courting as far as the eye can see, seals sleeping on ice floe and whales blowing water at the surface. Conquer the Drake Passage and set your eyes upon dramatic contrasts while learning about a place that has united countries and belongs to no one.

The Arctic

Realm of the mighty polar bear and the renowned Northern Lights: the Arctic Circle is the final frontier before the long journey to the North Pole. It’s a challenging world, populated by musk ox, walrus and narwhal, where communities have a long history of surviving off the sea. Navigate along untouched coastal areas, covering three continents and spanning eight countries, and explore one of the most biologically diverse parts of the world.
