Polar Adventures With World Expeditions

What's New

Independent adventure holiday specialist World Expeditions has just launched its Polar Voyages 2010/11 brochure, brimming with new and exciting voyages – including for the first time the Russian Arctic and Far East, a region that was until recently ‘off limits’ to western visitors!

With 20 voyages and over 60 departures, this is one of the most comprehensive ranges of polar trips ever presented in a single brochure, featuring the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, Falkland Islands, the remote Ross Sea, Scotland, Greenland, Norway or the high Arctic region of Spitsbergen.

In addition to the new brochure, as of the 2011/12 season, World Expeditions will offer a fresh approach to experiencing Antarctica: a new fly/cruise option that allows less time at sea and lower prices but still the same quality voyage.

Antarctic journeys sail from Ushuaia via the Falklands to South Georgia and onto the Antarctic Peninsula – but now a series of special voyages are planned that will utilise a charter flight, allowing for the trip to start/end at Port Stanley in the Falklands, shortening its duration to 15 days (as opposed to the usual three weeks).

The fly/cruise option will save time and money (the charter flight will be included in the trip rate) without compromising on the Antarctica experience, as it will include the same number of landing days as on regular South Georgia departures.

All World Expeditions’ polar trips emphasise on animal encounters and maximum shore time, with many offering the opportunity to kayak, dive – and even camp on the Antarctic mainland for a night!

To celebrate the launch of the Polar Voyages brochure, World Expeditions now has a selection of special offers. All new polar voyages bookings will receive 5% discount, while there are savings of up to 25% on selected trips/departure dates:
