Experience for yourself the thrill of discovery. Imagine yourself as an explorer of the past and venture into the unknown.
Imagine the Antarctic – teeming with wildlife – penguins, whales, seals and seabirds in a dramatic setting of mountain peaks, glaciers and stunning expanses of a white landscape. At the opposite end of the globe, the Arctic is a polar environment of spectacular fjords, huge open landscapes, remote communities, a history of tenacious people and beautiful shy wildlife – seabirds, whales, walrus, Musk ox, Arctic fox, Arctic hare and the majestic Polar Bear. Join us from Spitsbergen – the Arctic of Norway, to Greenland and follow the Viking trail to northern Canada. We visit each Polar Region during their summer season. Between these two Polar Seasons we explore the mystique of the islands of the Atlantic – The Enchanting Azores, and the remote coastal areas of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Norway. Our itineraries are unique and focused on the “up close and personal experience” with wildlife and local cultures. We venture where other ships just sail by!
Your voyage of discovery is today more comfortable as you board our highest ice-class ship, the M/V Polar Star to discover these compelling, distant lands in the safety and comfort of your “home away from home”. She is the ideal expedition ship with experienced and friendly staff, good facilities, spacious on-deck viewing, unique open bridge policy and a fleet of ten 12-man Zodiac inflatable landing craft to take you ever closer. You personal experience is further enhanced by our team of onboard specialists – their passion will shine through as they lecture and guide you in these amazing destinations.
