Sustainable Tourism in the Polar Regions
With over 30 dedicated expedition cruise vessels regularly sailing their waters, the polar regions have become an increasingly popular destination for Arctic and Antarctic exploration cruise ships. However, these pristine and far-flung regions are far from being tourist hotspots, and expedition vessel owners and operators are united in keeping the places they visit unspoiled. We only recommend Arctic and Antarctic cruise operators who are members of IAATO - the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators. Their code of conduct and practices ensure that every care is taken to ensure the pristine landscapes you will encounter remain that way.
Which animals will I be able to see?
The remarkable creatures that call the remote polar regions home are part of what makes a cruise to the Arctic or Antarctic such a memorable experience. Each region is home to both resident and migrant populations of seabirds, land mammals, sea mammals like whales, and more. What you will actually see on your polar expedition will depend on the weather, the time of year, and the itinerary you choose. Because each ship has a team of expert naturalists who work closely with the captain, every effort is made to give you fantastic wildlife encounters while ensuring the safety and comfort of passengers at all times. If there are particular species that you really hope to see, speak with our Polar travel experts today. They can advise you on which itineraries we offer will give you the best chance of an Arctic or Antarctic animal encounter of a lifetime!
