Memorable parts? Sitting next to penguins and elephant seals was the most memorable. Tips? Do it! Bring warm clothes. Local benefits?

Falkland Islands tour, birds and wildlife
From
£4,185
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? This whole holiday was brilliant. We enjoyed every minute of it. The wildlife is amazing. Tips? Relax and enjoy. Be prepared that FIGAS transports you according to the schedules they daily prepare. Sometimes you will get to move on in the morning and other times you will have to wait till the afternoon. Local benefits? Our holiday definitely benefited local people. All of the lodges and the airline are locally run. I loved that the lodges only cater for... (more)Sherry Koina
Falkland Islands holiday
From
£2,463
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Everything was memorable from the penguins on the Falkland Islands to the turtles on Ascension Island. Learning about the very different cultures in these places was something life changing and the welcome we received everywhere was the best I have ever known. Tips? The flight from Santiago is very long (14 hours) and as LANChile won't let you book single flights and so charge for return it is better to travel both ways by Airbridge from Brize Norton. This does away... (more)Di Lammas

So many highlights - Kayaking among glaciers and around icebergs with humpback whales, penguins and seals. (more)Arlene Weingart
The entire expedition and crew were amazing, but I'd have to say our wedding was the most memorable, although the polar plunge comes in a close second place, lol! (more)Danny Whiting
Best bits: The close sighting of a pod of Orca attacking a Humpbacked Whale and penguins; The ideal size of the ship and friendliness of the other passengers and crew. (more)Roger Labbatt
West Greenland photography tour
From
£3,150
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It was all memorable but if I had to pick one thing it would be the boat ride to the Icebergs. I'm not too keen on boats but I was persuaded to go and was stunned by the beauty and majesty of the area. Tips? Do it, you won't regret going to such a beautiful place. Local benefits? I think the group as a whole was environmentally aware of the impacts of man in such a delicate ecosystem. Also it benefited local people, particularly in Oqaatsut where local people...

Antarctica cruises
From
US $6,695
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the interplay between the animals, icebergs, glaciers, sea and sky. Tips? First: TAKE THE TRIP TO ANTARCTICA. It is unforgettable. If Miami is not on a direct route to Buenos Aires, fly there directly.Be sure to bring the right clothing. Being out on the water or a hill is COLD with the wrong clothes. Spend as much time on the bridge of the ship as possible. Go to all of the lectures. Meet new people Local benefits? No people to benefit in Antarctica. However,... (more)Stephen Kohn

£7,070

This trip was excellent. I can't speak highly enough of the Aurora staff and the Russian crew. (more)Barbara Shore
Awesome, a life changing experience....I have so many wonderful memories, it is difficult to summarise. The combination of the stunningly vast wilderness of Antarctica, the glacial icebergs and the beautiful King Penguins stand out, however so many other things will live in my memory. (more)Nick Russen
I can scarcely tell you how pleased we were with the trip. The ship was a lovely ship, and our cabin was well-appointed and very spacious. Even with all of our polar gear, we had storage space we didn’t use — unheard-of on a cruise ship. (more)Don Shay

From
£10,200

The most memorable part of the holiday was the whales swimming really close to my kayak... A fantastic adventure. (more)Caroline Blagg
In a nutshell, the trip could not have been better. It was fantastic. 5 star, 10 out of 10, couldn't have been better. I'm not sure when I'll be able to make another "exotic" trip, Responsible Travel will for sure be top of my list when I do. Thanks all of you. (more)Roger Bilder

Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
£2,799
excluding flights
Evacuation from an island when polar bears were sighted approaching was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Yiu Wing Chung
The most memorable parts of the trip were...The polar bears that we saw close up from the zodiac, the large group of walruses with some playing in the water, the bird cliff at Alkefjellet and the polar bear that came looking for tea, the glacier calving at Monacobreen with the pod of around 12 Belugas that turned up to watch, being able to swim in the Arctic, and, my personal favourite, sailing through the pack ice to 82 degrees north and being surrounded by ice. (more)Andy Sykes
Cruising is not my scene but this one was certainly very interesting and informative. The organization, comfort and activity were excellent and I could certainly find no fault with anything. (more)Marcus Durand

Arctic wildlife holiday, Polar bear explorer
From
£7,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? 22 Polar bears! And sadly this was a year when the sea ice melted early so I was afraid we wouldn't see any. Also foxes, walruses and reindeer, all seemingly unconcerned with humans so we were quite close. Spectacular scenery - glaciers, icebergs, tundra - lovely ship with a great crew and food better than I expected. Also, most importantly, the guides couldn't have been better. Tips? Be prepared for ever changing weather conditions. Local benefits? Svalbard... (more)Lisa Bromwell

From
£11,625
excluding flights

The whole trip from the time we boarded the ship to disembarkation. The most memorable thing was not getting sea sick the ship is that stable...The best ever. (more)David Lohan
This was the most incredible holiday - the staff on our ship were so efficient and hospitable, the landings were well managed and offered a diverse range of activities (hiking, sliding down the slopes on our stomachs, seals/penguins/birds - and the occasional whale), fascinating lectures, and a wonderful small ship environment.

Crossing the Antarctic Circle expedition cruise
From
£5,295
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A fantastic trip to Antarctica most memorable for crossing the antarctic circle. Tips? Do your research, we booked with the operator via Responsible travel but discovered that the ship is owned and run by another operator with whom you can book directly. The operator we booked with did not add anything extra on the contrary not particularly customer focused or friendly, so the operator of the boat should get all of the credit for Environmental Sustainability etc.... (more)Malcolm Salisbury
South Georgia, Falklands and Antarctica cruise
From
£6,875
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the Antarctic wildlife up close, the fascinating lectures on board from the very knowledgeable expedition team, the fantastic, friendly staff on board MS Midnatsol. Tips? Don't over pack the thermals! You only really wear them for landings so one set of outers/inners is fine. Bring a camera with a zoom lens. Local benefits? Yes, we were carefully instructed about how to behave on landings. We were guided and monitored carefully to protect the wildlife. Overall... (more)Katherine Chiu
