Ask a frequent polar traveler and they’re sure to tell you: each trip to the Arctic or Antarctica is an entirely new and unique experience. In these wildly diverse and remote regions, experiences are shaped by stunning land and icescapes, the activities in which you participate, and most often, by interactions with the animals and marine mammals who live at these extremes of the earth.
For many, embarking on a polar expedition is the trip of a lifetime. Whether it’s a top bucket list trip, or your polar passion drives you to explore new Arctic and Antarctic regions every chance you get, a lot of planning and preparation will go into your epic adventure.
