Our philosophy of sustainable traveling
Polartours is an Expedition Cruise Specialist for trips to Antarctica and the Arctic. We partner with over 20 operators to bring you a huge range of expedition cruises, ranging from Greenland to the Falkland Islands, from Svalbard to the Antarctica. We take great pride in our unrivalled knowledge of the ships, itineraries and their philosophy of sustainable traveling. We have no preferred operators, which means that we will gladly advise against one ship and for another, if we feel that this will enhance your experience and match your interest, budget or level of fitness better.
Meet Benno, the founder of Polartours. Benno's big passion is traveling and online marketing. In 2018, while traveling to the Galápagos Islands, he was astonished not find any web page that would easily allow travelers to compare and book Galápagos Cruises. A few months later, www.galapatours.com, the world's leading specialist for Galápagos Cruises and sustainable tourism in Galápagos was born. Polartours follows the same philosophy: Our expert team of Travel Specialists aim to understand each vessel's philosophy in detail and pride themselves with their extensive knowledge of the destinations. We are experts in our field and want to share our wealth of knowledge with you to enhance your experience of the polar regions.
A Polar Cruise: For most a once-in-a-lifetime experience
A cruise to the Arctic or Antarctica is not something you book without having done extensive research. We understand the importance of your investment and that, for many of our clients, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This is why we give a best-price guarantee: Should you find a better price for the same route anywhere else, let us know, and we will outmatch it. This way, you will never pay more than if you booked with the operator directly. In addition, we also have excellent rates for any arrangements you'd like to make around your cruise including flights, accommodation and land tours.
And the best thing: Your trip is an investment into sustainable tourism. All our ships follow strict ecological guidelines and, out of our own pocket, we chose to compensate 100% of the CO2-Emissions created by your voyage.
