The whole trip was amazing, but I loved the whales and penguins the most! Go for it! Antarctica is truly special place! Be prepared for the high possibility of rough sea while passing through the Drake! That was really rough on our way back but it was worthy!! (more)Eva Pekarova
There are so many highlights that it is impossible to sensibly list them all. I would say the sheer majesty of the Antarctic landscape stands out along with the opportunity to be really close to wildlife such as penguins, seabirds and seals. (more)Nigel Wingate
The highlight was the vegan meals. (more)Emma Smith-Bodie

This trip will forever stay in my heart. Incredible. I would go again tomorrow if I got the chance. (more)Helen Connolly
Fantastic - it's more than a holiday and is so different to anything else I have ever done. South Georgia is an amazing place. The beaches were packed with tens of thousands of penguins and they weren't afraid to come right up to us. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful. (more)rebecca allcock
Every part of the holiday was memorable including animals, birds, scenery, the ship (Polar Pioneer), fellow travellers and expedition team. (more)Christine Brignoni
Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
From
€3,790
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas

Antarctic Peninsula Cruises
From
£3,750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Crossing the Drake Passage on our return home in a force 10 Gale. So exciting. Plus all our Zodiac trips. Tips? You need to be reasonably agile to walk up and down the steps to board the Zodiacs and to climb in. Take along a sense of humour and adventure. Local benefits? Everyone was advised to make as little impact as possible when we landed. To leave no trace on land or animals. Overall rating? My trip was one of the best trips I've had. The organisation,...

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
Arctic icebreaker cruise, Spitsbergen

This was a truly wonderful experience! would definitely recommend (more)Cara Hirst
An amazing trip! The scenery -glaciers, icebergs and sea ice - were stunning, the northern lights fantastic, and the wildlife wonderful. It is impossible to highlight one part, as it was two memorable weeks! (more)Kathryn Huddle
Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
£2,649
excluding flights
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
Seeing a mother polar bear and her two cubs walking on the ice floes walking along them then diving in and swimming to the next one. The cubs following on behind her. Fabulous! (more)Susie Barrett
Antarctica cruises
From
US $4,995

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

From
£11,440

Memorable parts? The highlight of the trip for me was always going to be South Georgia, which has fascinated me for years and entirely lived up to my very high expectations. What a stunningly beautiful place! We were extremely fortunate as we approached the island because there was no cloud cover and we could see the full magnificence of the snowy peaks in all their glory - a rare occurrence apparently. During three whole days around this incredible island, we made a numerous landings and... (more)Roger Bilder

Memorable parts? See our photos at https://goo.gl/photos/oL5eXT8HYZfV4dB56 Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Greenland was amazing, the schooner Opal was a delight, and the crew looking after us and sailing the ship were brilliant. The weather was perfect. We had clear blue skies 24 hours a day with very little wind, and often not really that cold (0 - 15C) for the whole time we were there. The constant sunshine added to the stunning scenery of ice, water, sky... (more)Rosemary Smith

From
£11,546

There is no refund even if the trip is cancelled. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? A lifetime experience (more)KK Chan
West Greenland photography tour
From
£3,950
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... (more)Janet Burdon
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
Spitsbergen polar bear watching cruise
From
£2,399

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....

Antarctica holiday, classic cruise
From
£3,899

It was all fantastic. The first visit to a penguin colony was amazing, but the best was probably our visit to Adie Cove. No cruise had been there before and it was named after the lady who ran our cruise. 11 out of 10.... (more)Lawrence Bradley
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. (more)Barbara Wilson

From
£4,050
