2. Unbiased Recommendations
As independent agents, we don't have any ties to specific operators. With over 30 vessels in Antarctica and the Arctic, every ship has its own philosophy, and we won't shy away from giving you clear recommendations, based on your interests, fitness level, budget, or age. A good place to start planning your trip is by scheduling a free video consultation with us.
3. Sustainable Tourism
Discovering the world should have a positive impact. As Polartours, we are certified and awarded for our engagement in sustainable tourism.

4. Financial Protection
Unlike when booking with other agencies—actually, even when booking with other operators directly!—our bookings are fully protected. As a German operator, we must adhere to the strictest policies and all our customer bookings are fully protected against insolvency.
5. Best Price Guarantee
Our prices are amongst the best you'll find, and booking through Polartours means you'll never pay more than if you booked with the operator directly.
