WHY WE RECOMMEND Polar Regions CRUISES

A world away from the sunny Mediterranean and the Caribbean’s white sandy beaches, cruises around the polar regions offer an entirely different adventure.

You could head up into the Arctic Circle during a cruise around the fjords or the Baltic capitals; or sail south from the far tip of Argentina towards the surreal frozen landscapes of Antarctica. Since these are luxury cruises, you could spend your days at sea in a hot whirlpool out on deck, glass of wine in hand – or head ashore on an expedition, learning more about these remote ecosystems with the help of expert guides.

Cruises in the Arctic tend to offer more choice in the warmer summer months, with some voyages available from England and Scotland or even Miami. Set sail from Greenland out of ports like Kangerlussuaq, and you could embark on a tour of Canada and Alaska’s most spectacular destinations like the Smoking Hills, the Yukon Territory and the snow-covered town of Barrow. Equally popular are cruises of the fjords, which focus on Norway’s beautiful ocean inlets and the dramatic mountain landscapes that tower over remote fishing villages beneath.

A luxury cruise is also the perfect way to explore Antarctica, with a wide choice of itineraries available from Ushuaia in Argentina to the rocky shores of Neko, the alien ice structures of Pleneau Island and the striking, rugged landscape of Port Lockroy and its penguin colonies.

With the poles covering such vast distances, and with many ports here often being remote and far-flung, there are countless different ways to see Antarctica or the Arctic Circle on a variety of routes. Call our Cruise Concierge team for friendly, professional travel advice – and let them find and tailor your luxury voyage from among the best cruises in the polar regions.

1

Ushuaia, Argentina

Ushuaia, the world's southernmost town, lies on the triangular-shaped islandof Tierra del Fuego. While Ferdinand Magellan was exploring the straits between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in 1520, he was amazed by the smoke and fires which seemed to appear at every turn. These fires, which were kept continuously alight by the Yaghan and Ona Indians, became the inspiration for the name "Tierra del Fuego," Land of Fire.

Port Stanley, Falklands Islands

The Falkland Islands are situated some 350 miles east of Tierra del Fuego, 1,000 miles north of Antarctica and, as the locals claim, a mere 8,000 miles from Britain. Port Stanley is home to the majority of the island's residents -1,990 out of a total population of 2,490. These 700 islands have long been of historical importance to scientists and seamen alike. Prior to the construction of the Panama Canal, they offered safe anchorage and provisions for sailing vessels as they headed around Cape Horn. Today, maritime interests center mostly on the British Royal Navy, fishing fleets from a variety of nations and scientific expeditions to Antarctica. In 1982, world attention was riveted on these islands when Argentine and British forces fought fiercely for the right to call them their own. A number of vessels, numerous aircraft, thousands of troops and many local residents were involved in the conflict. After heavy combat, the will of Britain, supported by the island people, prevailed and the Falkland Islands remain British to this day.

South Georgia Expedition

Regarded as one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and accessible only by sea, this one-time whaling outpost is home to glacier-clad coastlines and dramatic fjords, astonishing wildlife and awe-inspiring scenery. Here is where thousands of king penguins flock to a single beach to nest, and where the largest congregation of Antarctic fur seals is found. Look for southern elephant seals and albatross – wandering, black-browed and more – and take hikes to follow in the footsteps of Shackleton.

Tristan Da Cunha

This remote ancient volcanic island in the South Atlantic is miles from nowhere (actually, it’s an estimated 1,500 miles northwest of Cape Town). Discovered in 1502 by Portuguese Admiral João da Nova on his return voyage from India, it became a British dependency in 1834. An island of contrasts, it was soon known as a haven for sea travelers due to its luxuriant vegetation, equable climate, wealth of fruit trees and lush valleys.

15

Nightingale Island

Uninhabited but for the abundant seabird colonies that breed here, Nightingale Island is an active volcano that has long perplexed explorers. Its jagged coastline and “broken” peaks challenged the Dutch who first tried to anchor offshore, leaving the island largely to the birds for centuries. It is today the focus of extensive wildlife conservation efforts, home to yellow-nosed albatrosses, great shearwaters, and rockhopper penguins among the local residents of the four designated wetlands.

16

Gough Island, St Helena

The only continual human presence found on these rugged shores is that of the annually rotating crew at the meteorological station. Beyond that, Gough Island, originally discovered in 1505 by Portuguese explorers, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and Important Bird Area home to hundreds of thousands of sea birds, including two endemic species. Sub-antarctic fur seals are known to breed here, too.

Cape Town, South Africa

Marvel at the magnificent presence of South Africa’s “Mother City,” where the iconic Table Mountain invites discovery and the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden enchants. Take in the extraordinary scenery of the Cape Peninsula, explore history at Robben Island, visit up-and-coming art galleries, and savor the celebrated vintages of Stellenbosch.
