Pack your coats, as a polar trip is an icy experience that is sure to thrill the entire family. Sail along glacial inlets in either the Arctic or Antarctic and keep your eyes peeled for polar bears or penguin. Hiring a sailing vessel for exclusive use ensures that everyone will have front row views of dazzling icy expanses. If you’ve always dreamed of reaching the North Pole, the 50 Years of Victory is the expedition icebreaker that will take you all the way there.
In Iceland, you’ll have endless outdoor opportunities, including dog sledding, quad biking, hiking, horseback riding, glacier walks, waterfall and geyser visits, and even snorkelling or diving in the continental rift. Further north in the Arctic, from the safety of your ship’s deck, you may see polar bear hunting seals on the ice sheets and enormous ivory tusked walrus fighting for a spot!
Should you choose to go south, you can spend Christmas in Antarctica. Your journey will be on a luxurious cruise ship, with minke whale and orca pods swimming below, watching millions of penguin nesting on the rocky shores and 6 different species of blubbery seal that call these frigid vistas their home.
