Reasons You Should Choose Polar Cruises

If you’re seeking the trip of a lifetime, look no further. Polar cruises are the ultimate ocean travel adventure. From the Arctic to Antarctica, these destinations are teaming with untouched beauty that you won’t find anywhere else.

About The Polar Regions

There are two Polar Regions. The North Pole is where you’ll find Norway, Russia, Canada, and of course, the Arctic Circle; while the South Pole is home to Antarctica. If you’re planning a polar holiday, travel is often limited to the summer months, particularly in Antarctica. In winter, the weather in Antarctica is unbearable and ships generally stay away. Your best time to travel south on holiday is between November and March, while an Arctic cruise in the north is ideal for travel between June and September (unless you want to see the Northern Lights, which appear during winter months).

Why Go On A Polar Cruise?

Whether you choose to travel the North Pole or the South Pole, polar cruises provide an array of icy options.


Wildlife

Wildlife is abundant regardless of where you go in the Polar Region, from musk ox, arctic foxes, bear and white hares in the northern hemisphere, to Leopard seals, albatross, blue whales and the Southern Elephant Seal in the south. You’ll also have the chance to come face to face with polar bears, sea lions, orca and humpback whales in the south.

Comfort

Polar Cruise comfort

Luxury polar cruises are designed for comfort. They offer travellers an experience that is impossible to find elsewhere and they are a fantastic travel option for the trip of a lifetime. While standard cruises are amazing, luxury polar cruises take you away from reality (and the hustle and bustle that regular cruise ships generate). At Eclipse Travel, we offer small ship expeditions that carry no more than 200 people, so there is no overcrowding and an enhanced level of comfort. Smaller ships allow you to visit destinations that larger ships can’t reach, and still offer a range of accommodation options. From quad cabins for four people, to triple or twin cabins; superior cabins are ideal if you prefer solo travel or are travelling with your partner, while the suites are more spacious and decked out with stunning window views, private shower and toilet, minibar, phones and wifi, and often much more.

The Challenge

Polar Cruise challenge

If you love a challenge, polar cruises are a great way to test your boundaries. On a cruise ship, you’ll have expert guides and sufficient equipment to ensure your comfort and safety is paramount. But when it comes to adventure, every place you go presents a risk. From stepping onto the ice sheet of Antarctica metres from whales and in below zero temperatures, through to coming face to face with a huge musk ox in the hills of Greenland. Each tour to these regions provides a range of expedition options at every place you stop, from kayaking through the ice to climbing cliffs and ice caps, diving in the icy waters to hiking through the National Parks. If you want an experience that will make your heart pound, a polar cruise is guaranteed to do so.
