Polar holidays in the frozen Arctic and Antarctic wilderness

Welcome to some of the most rugged and challenging landscapes on the planet. Amid desolate frozen landscapes survives an amazing diversity of wildlife. And you’ll be there in the thick of it.

Our expedition-grade Arctic and Antarctic cruise vessels will take you on a Polar holiday into the heart of the white wilderness. Accompanying you will be expert guides and researchers to bring the dramatic scenery even more vividly to life.

Arctic cruises

The Land of the Midnight Sun has beguiled intrepid travellers for years. Here wolf prowl on the hunt, shy Arctic fox dart over the frozen tundra, and whale breach the waves. The spectacular views are combined with a series of thrilling land-based excursions during which you visit remote Inuit communities and track fearsome polar bears across the ice.

Antarctic cruises

Follow in the footsteps of Shackleton and the Endurance as you discover one of the world’s last remaining natural frontiers. Here lie over 14 million km2 of unforgiving, snowy expanse and towering sheets of ice. You’ll visit sparsely populated islands and historic settlements. There will be huge and deafening colonies of penguins. You can watch sea birds cling precariously to steep cliffs, and see orcas and elephant seals do battle at the very ends of the earth.

In Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Canada and Alaska our specialist voyages to the Arctic and Antarctic open up lands of unparalleled beauty. We have over 25 years of experience in organising polar expeditions with our signature blend of luxury and adventure.

"We saw majestic landscapes, polar bears and their cubs, and amazing icebergs. The cruise was well-organised, the A&K team were great, and the holiday definitely lived up to our expectations. We were concerned that the Arctic could not equal our Antarctic A&K holiday, but it was every bit as fantastic." 
Mrs M-N, 2018
"Never did I think I would have the chance to sip champagne on a Zodiac boat while surrounded by humpback whales! But on my A&K trip to Antarctica this became a reality." 
Adam Fogg, A&K senior travel specialist, 2019
