Epic Journeys in Polar Regions

Polar Regions

Once reserved for pioneering explorers on expeditions, the Polar Regions are now top of many adventurous travellers’ epic experiences. The extremes of the north and south hold towering glaciers, icy fjords, spectacular ice-scapes, and fascinating wildlife such as polar bears and penguins. Witness natural phenomena like the captivating Northern Lights and more on a customised itinerary with Lightfoot Travel.

Navigate the waters of the Drake Passage to get to Antarctica, the most remote place on earth. There, you can kayak with seals, watch dancing whales, and spot colonies of king penguins as you hike along the icy landscape. You can even take an exhilarating dip in the icy ocean.

Sail to the Arctic on a decommissioned research vessel and embark on expeditions like photography tours, hot air balloon rides, helicopter tours and ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicles) trips. Then join the ranks of the privileged few who can say they’ve set foot on the North Pole. Travel experiences do not get more epic than that!
