Arctic and Antarctica
The Arctic and Antarctica are both home to some of the world's rarest wildlife, and one of the best ways to experience it is by boat.
In the Arctic, we recommend an Alaskan cruise, which includes two days exploring Glacier Bay. Here evenings are spent anchored in hidden coves, while the mornings are for kayaking into the quiet wilderness in search of the astounding array of native species, including puffin, sea lion, mountain goat, bear, moose and eagle.
Down in the South, at the last frontier, the Antarctica Peninsula is home to vast colonies of penguins and seabirds. Accompanied by expert guides cruise in comfort and style on board Le Boreal, the only all-balcony luxury expedition cruiser in Antarctica when chartered by A&K.
