Visit the Polar Regions
Visiting the Polar Regions reminds us of the resilience of our wildlife. Despite the harshest conditions on earth, both areas are home to a plethora of species that have evolved to survive on land and under the sea. A visit to Antarctica offers an otherworldly experience and gives incredible insights into the early days of exploration of this vast wilderness. The Arctic region is home to hardy Indigenous populations who flourish in seemingly impossible conditions. Travellers here can encounter resident snowy owls, arctic fox and real life wolverines!
The phenomenal white frozen continent of Antarctica has something for everyone. History buffs can marvel at Mawson’s Hut and its icy artefacts from the pioneering days of Antarctic exploration. Nature lovers will adore Emperor penguins looking like a group of gossiping suits as they lean in to form their protective huddles. Photographers can snap thousands of images of otherworldly icy cathedrals. More intrepid adventurers can slip into a sea kayak and explore bays and breeding grounds or camp onshore to explore further.
