What we saw defied description. A privilege to be there (more)Roy Joffe

This trip will forever stay in my heart. Incredible. I would go again tomorrow if I got the chance. (more)Helen Connolly
Fantastic - it's more than a vacation and is so different to anything else I have ever done. South Georgia is an amazing place. The beaches were packed with tens of thousands of penguins and they weren't afraid to come right up to us. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful. (more)rebecca allcock

Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
£2,649
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a mother polar bear and her two cubs walking on the ice floes walking along them then diving in and swimming to the next one. The cubs following on behind her. Fabulous! Tips? Be warm but also have some smart casual clothes to wear in the evening. When inside of the boat you can be relatively warm - have those layers for going out on deck where it can be cooler but you can watch the midnight sun or enjoy the on deck BBQ. If you want good photographs make sure... (more)Susie Barrett
Antarctica, Falklands and South Georgia cruises
From
US $13,695
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The highlight of the trip for me was always going to be South Georgia, which has fascinated me for years and entirely lived up to my very high expectations. What a stunningly beautiful place! We were extremely fortunate as we approached the island because there was no cloud cover and we could see the full magnificence of the snowy peaks in all their glory - a rare occurrence apparently. During three whole days around this incredible island, we made a numerous landings and... (more)Roger Bilder
Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
From
€3,090
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas

All of the activities were amazing but sleeping out under the stars was a real highlight. Outstanding 10/10. (more)Rebecca Allen
The most memorable was landing on the Antarctic peninsula - our seventh continent! Definitely ten out of ten! Wonderfully organised! An amazing experience! We learnt so much! (more)Margaret Shaw
The second was sea kayaking around Danco Island. The water was still, there were iceberg all over the place which we paddled through, and penguins were jumping out of the water all around us. The landscape was stunning, and I will never forget this activity. (more)Jack Clancy
Antarctica cruises
From
US $4,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the interplay between the animals, icebergs, glaciers, sea and sky. Tips? First: TAKE THE TRIP TO ANTARCTICA. It is unforgettable. If Miami is not on a direct route to Buenos Aires, fly there directly.Be sure to bring the right clothing. Being out on the water or a hill is COLD with the wrong clothes. Spend as much time on the bridge of the ship as possible. Go to all of the lectures. Meet new people Local benefits? No people to benefit in Antarctica. However,... (more)Stephen Kohn

Seeing polar bears, walruses and whales. Especially seeing a rare Bowhead whale whilst moving through the pack ice. (more)Peter Smart
Very good... the most memorable parts is arriving at the pack ice on a beautiful sunny evening and then seeing our first polar bear. (more)david rumsey

From
£3,950

Memorable parts? It was all memorable but if I had to pick one thing it would be the boat ride to the Icebergs. I'm not too keen on boats but I was persuaded to go and was stunned by the beauty and majesty of the area. Tips? Do it, you won't regret going to such a beautiful place. Local benefits? I think the group as a whole was environmentally aware of the impacts of man in such a delicate ecosystem. Also it benefited local people, particularly in Oqaatsut where local people...

Memorable parts? See our photos at https://goo.gl/photos/oL5eXT8HYZfV4dB56 Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Greenland was amazing, the schooner Opal was a delight, and the crew looking after us and sailing the ship were brilliant. The weather was perfect. We had clear blue skies 24 hours a day with very little wind, and often not really that cold (0 - 15C) for the whole time we were there. The constant sunshine added to the stunning scenery of ice, water, sky... (more)Rosemary Smith

From
US $5,200

The whole trip from the time we boarded the ship to disembarkation. The most memorable thing was not getting sea sick the ship is that stable...The best ever. (more)David Lohan

(more)Barbara Wilson
Falkland Islands holiday
From
£2,463
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Everything was memorable from the penguins on the Falkland Islands to the turtles on Ascension Island. Learning about the very different cultures in these places was something life changing and the welcome we received everywhere was the best I have ever known. Tips? The flight from Santiago is very long (14 hours) and as LANChile won't let you book single flights and so charge for return it is better to travel both ways by Airbridge from Brize Norton. This does away... (more)Di Lammas
