Travel with Abercrombie & Kent and you'll be travelling with Mats Fosberg, one of the world's leading polar bear researchers who will be aboard this A&K charter Le Boreal for an unforgettable voyage into the extreme Arctic wilderness. An expert on polar bear tracking and observation, Mats has guided BBC production teams into the region's polar bear habitat.

The Arctic region is a vast, ice-covered ocean, the home of the midnight sun and the polar night. This rugged, powerful landscape has always attracted the adventurous. Where everything is shaped by the climate, an adventure holiday to this unique and sadly changing part of our planet is a unique experience.

For many, visiting the Arctic is centred on experiencing the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights. Whilst the science, caused by the collision of charged particles with atoms in the high atmosphere, may not be clear to everyone the dazzling visual displays of dancing light in the sky leaves even residents spellbound. Whilst we can't recommend exactly when and where the phenomenon will occur, there are special places with little light pollution and the right conditions which significantly increase the chances.

For others it is the wildlife and the polar bears, moose, fox, whales, wolves, caribou and elk that roam the tundra, ice and endless fjords. Choose from either our fully equipped land programmes with expert guides and rangers or enjoy an expedition cruise on board the luxury vessel, Le Boreal, celebrated for having some of the finest guides in the industry on board with you. Both options will allow you to experience the very best of the Arctic.

Abercrombie & Kent's Arctic cruises draw on the best facilities, guides and local knowledge to create the ultimate Arctic expedition, aboard Le Boreal.
