During a polar adventure, immerse yourself in the untouched, remote region and, before you know it, you’ll find yourself surrounded by extraordinary scenery and breathtaking wildlife - you won’t know where to look first. You’ll want to keep your binoculars close to you, to catch a glimpse of any wildlife in the distance; you never know when a waddle of penguins or pod of seals is nearby.
Whatever polar region you decide to visit, whether it be the Antarctic Peninsula that extends towards South America or the Arctic Cordillera in Canada, you’re guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience.
Many choose to visit the Antarctic Peninsula because it is a major breeding ground for seals, seabirds and penguins. You’ll have the opportunity to see blue-eyed cormorants dive 25 metres down to feed, with snow-covered peaks and arrow iceberg channels in the background, creating a beautiful scene.
The Arctic Cordillera consists mainly of magnificent mountain ranges, blanketed with a thick layer of snow that allows you to engage in thrilling snow sports, go hiking through challenging trails and enjoy sightseeing along the way.
With the UK’s proximity to the Arctic Circle, it makes visiting this region very easy, whether it's via a cruise or flight. If the Aurora Borealis is top of your bucket list, travelling to northern Norway, inside the Arctic Circle, will increase your chances of seeing this unique, natural light display.
A little further afield, but still in the Arctic Circle, is Alaska, the USA’s largest state by far. In this one-million-square-kilometre area, you can do a multitude of activities, from hiking up Mount McKinley and witnessing the mesmerising views of the glaciers below to taking a floatplane across Katmai National Park to see grizzly bears catching salmon jumping out from the water.
