From
NKr12,900
excluding flights
This was a wonderful remote area experience that gave time to soak in the "place" and to experience people living within the local climate. Socially it was also a great experience with like-minded people... (more)Bruce Harley
It was a terrific blend of sights and experiences on and off the boat. Charles is an outstanding captain, a fine host, an excellent chef, and an able tour guide. We got to know many aspects of Norwegian life quickly, and in depth. We were lucky enough to spot the Lights three nights in a row. Terrific trip! (more)MICHELE DIENNO
Excellent food and excellent company. Charles really knew his stuff. (more)Kevin Sheil

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

From

Absolutely stunning - exceeded expectations (more)Paul Stubbs
Absolutely magical. The boat, crew, food, trips, fellow passengers, weather, everything was amazing. (more)Emily Shields

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
Every part of the vacation was memorable including animals, birds, scenery, the ship (Polar Pioneer), fellow travelers and expedition team. (more)Christine Brignoni

We loved it, quite different from our usual sort of vacation. We were well looked after. (more)Elaine Bowdery

Great. The company Sea Adventures logo is definitely deserved but we always felt safe! (more)Jo Turner

Snorkelling with turtles, sealions and penguins was the most memorable. Getting so close to and seeing so many different animals and birds. The crew on the Angelito really looked after us. Galapagos is a special place to visit...I'll never be able to go wildlife watching get ever again, now I've been spoilt! (more)Anna Hodson
We had a fantastic group of people on board so I had a great time although traveling solo. I was very pleased with the itinerary of the cruise which really made the most of the days. During the week we got to see practically everything which honestly made it feel well worth the investment. (more)Sari Sironen

From
US $14,295
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
€3,790
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
Antarctica expedition cruise
From
£4,680
excluding flights
The whole trip was amazing, but I loved the whales and penguins the most! Go for it! Antarctica is truly special place! Be prepared for the high possibility of rough sea while passing through the Drake! That was really rough on our way back but it was worthy!! (more)Eva Pekarova
There are so many highlights that it is impossible to sensibly list them all. I would say the sheer majesty of the Antarctic landscape stands out along with the opportunity to be really close to wildlife such as penguins, seabirds and seals. (more)Nigel Wingate
The highlight was the vegan meals. (more)Emma Smith-Bodie
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

So many highlights - Kayaking among glaciers and around icebergs with humpback whales, penguins and seals. (more)Arlene Weingart
The entire expedition and crew were amazing, but I'd have to say our wedding was the most memorable, although the polar plunge comes in a close second place, lol! (more)Danny Whiting
Best bits: The close sighting of a pod of Orca attacking a Humpbacked Whale and penguins; The ideal size of the ship and friendliness of the other passengers and crew. (more)Roger Labbatt

Best part of the trip was traveling through the pack ice and seeing polar bears. (more)Emma Thomas
Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
£2,799
excluding flights
The most memorable parts of the trip were...The polar bears that we saw close up from the zodiac, the large group of walruses with some playing in the water, the bird cliff at Alkefjellet and the polar bear that came looking for tea, the glacier calving at Monacobreen with the pod of around 12 Belugas that turned up to watch, being able to swim in the Arctic, and, my personal favourite, sailing through the pack ice to 82 degrees north and being surrounded by ice. (more)Andy Sykes
Cruising is not my scene but this one was certainly very interesting and informative. The organization, comfort and activity were excellent and I could certainly find no fault with anything. (more)Marcus Durand
As highlights, I would say the many many wildlife that we saw (over 30 polar bears! arctic deer, arctic fox, hundreds of walruses, seals and birds) and that we were able to sail all the way almost to the North Pole (just 800 km away!). (more)Maitea Guridi

Baja & the Sea of Cortes adventure cruises, Mexico
From
£2,925
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Whale watching up close in Magdalena Bay Tips? Be prepareed for hiking on un inhabited islands, snorkelling, kayaking etc Local benefits? Most produce on the boat locally sourced. Tour guides have environmental care. Overall rating? V enjoyable. A lot of elderly Americans on board. Captain over-cautious re wind which meant first two days/nights spent anchored and itinerary suffered as a result. (more)Les Owen
Kamchatka wildlife and bird watching cruise, Russia
From
US $8,400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ribbon seals, the northern right whale and the spoonbill sandpiper. Tips? Be prepared for lots of walking on the tundra. Also understand that the ship does not have stabilizers so even a mild swell rocks the ship. Bring a good layering system as temperatures and ice conditions can vary greatly. Local benefits? Supported conservation and the spoonbill sandpiper project. I suppose that we provided some income for the people in the towns in which... (more)Marian Herz
Galapagos cruise vacation
From
US $4,782
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing such amazing animals (including sharks whilst snorkelling) so close but in the wild still. Tips? Choose a boat that fits your activity levels - I am very active but I appreciate not everyone is! Also beware if you do get seasick - a smaller boat will be a challenge Local benefits? My vacation contributed to the local economy and didn't negatively impact the environment Overall rating? Fabulous fun - the crew, guide and group were also top quality (more)Fiona Muntz
Arctic wildlife vacation, Polar bear explorer
From
£7,495
excluding flights
Memorable parts? 22 Polar bears! And sadly this was a year when the sea ice melted early so I was afraid we wouldn't see any. Also foxes, walruses and reindeer, all seemingly unconcerned with humans so we were quite close. Spectacular scenery - glaciers, icebergs, tundra - lovely ship with a great crew and food better than I expected. Also, most importantly, the guides couldn't have been better. Tips? Be prepared for ever changing weather conditions. Local benefits? Svalbard... (more)Lisa Bromwell
