Marine and Wildlife Holidays

Take a voyage to the ends of the Earth on an awe-inspiring journey to the polar regions of the Arctic or Antarctica. Here you’ll find an icy wilderness made up of some of the most beautiful and wild scenery you could imagine, icebergs the size of housing estates and a range of fascinating wildlife, including polar bears, walruses, penguins, seals and whales.

Regions once reserved for groundbreaking pioneers and seasoned adventurers, these days you can join one of our marine and wildlife trips to explore the poles in comfort, on a small ship crewed by committed staff with extraordinary levels of experience and a dedicated work ethic. These are the people who make the adventure of a lifetime possible.

The wildlife at each of the poles is completely different. Antarctica is colder, and there are no indigenous inhabitants. Instead, there are six million (and six species) of penguins. And the Arctic is the only place in the world where you’ll find polar bears. Unique flora and fauna has developed in each region too.
