Ponant, world leader of luxury expedition.

WHEN it comes to looking for a new destination to venture to, nowhere else on earth shouts the once-in-a-lifetime adventure other than a cruise journey to the polar regions, The Arctic and Antarctica.

Not many travellers have set foot on these two extreme polar regions due to the challenges of reaching it.

However, in recent years with climate change and global warming, there has been a rising environmental awareness leading to an increase of interest amongst travellers for these once out-of-reach destinations.

One unforgettable experience when visiting these polar regions is witnessing mother nature’s wild wonders in person, as well as learning more about the efforts to protect and preserve the environment.

Travel north to The Arctic to explore the fjords, glaciers and ice-laden waterways, see polar bears, whales, walrus and more.
