What is a polar expedition cruise?

At its heart, an expedition cruise is an adventurous voyage that allows you to experience a remote and untamed area of the world. You jump aboard a small ice-breaking ship and head off into the wilderness, be it exploring ice-choked waterways such as the Arctic's Northwest Passage, the rugged penguin island of South Georgia, or sailing across the Drake Passage to Antarctica.

Swoop offer voyages to both the Arctic and the Antarctic, including the North Pole and crossing the Antarctic Circle. Read on and discover how to choose between these two incredible destinations, and the sort of activities you can expect to enjoy during a polar voyage.
