A cheat sheet to polar travel


From when to go to what to see, polar travel pioneers Quark Expeditions has provided an indispensable guide for those planning travel to the Arctic and Antarctica.

 

 

You can also take advantage of some impressive wave season sales that can see you pretty much score a free cabin upgrade for the same price (or for a small upgrade fee) as a standard cabin. Check out the flyers below for more information or visit Quark Expeditions.

 

ANTARCTICA

One of the last great frontiers on the planet, Antarctica appeals to adventurers of all ages. It offers stunning scenery, amazing encounters with wildlife and perhaps the biggest tick of all the items on your bucket list. 

 

But the Antarctic is a changeable creature. Visit in the early season to see her reawaken after a long winter. The orcas are returning and the icebergs are at their greatest mass. Come a bit later to see the glaciers calve and the first penguin chicks begin to hatch. For those who want to see marine wildlife in all its glory, the late season is the time to visit.

THE ARCTIC

Spanning a sixth of the planet, the Arctic is both wild and wonderful. From polar bears to the northern lights, here, the mystical blends seamlessly with the majestic.

 

Spitsbergen, the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, is known as the wildlife capital of the Arctic and the realm of the beloved polar bear. While visits to the Canadian Arctic afford the chance to meet Inuit artists and experience the incredible Sam Ford fjord. For those who want to journey to the top of the world (and perhaps see if Santa is hard at work) a trip to the Russian Arctic is a must. And then of course Greenland beckons with its bewitching Northern Lights and its Viking and Nordic history.
