The Artic & Antarctica

Call us today to find out the best time to go to the Arctic or Antarctica

Considered to be completely off the beaten track, the Arctic is the world’s pristine natural oasis engulfed in gigantic mountain heights, sheets of ice and unfathomable weather phenomena that will stop you in your tracks. Begin your journey in Iceland, one of the Arctic’s many beautiful and diverse countries. Landing in the capital city of Reykjavik a must-visit is the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa located southwest of the country. This idyllic spot is the ultimate location for pampering and relaxation as the therapeutic water revives both the mind and body. As it is such a sought after spot, tours regularly stop at this location with the option of checking into the Lagoon’s hotel for an extended stay. A favourite destination of the Arctic, and accessible on most tours is Svalbard, an extensive group of islands halfway between the North Pole and Norway. When the snow has just covered the ground the springtime is perfect for dog sledding across the great white dust or snowmobiling with an experienced guide. Known for its beautiful wildlife, the Arctic is home to some of the world’s most fascinating creatures. Ensure you have the camera ready as you might spot the arctic fox with its white fur and distinctive black nose or a polar bear in its natural habitat. Despite the captivating wildlife, travellers flock to the Arctic to see one of nature’s most curious phenomena the Northern Lights, or otherwise known as Aurora Borealis. This distinct light show paints the sky with a wash of electric colours, but can be incredibly hard to capture without knowing the right locations and the ideal time of year. When it comes to travelling through the Arctic, finding the right time of year to go is imperative, so call us today to get all the information you need. Antarctica is another adventure following in the footsteps of great explorers like Shackleton, Mawson, Ross & Scott to name a few. So why don’t you become the next explorer?? The best time to travel to Antarctica is between November to February and Antarctica is accessible from South America and sometimes from New Zealand or Hobart, Australia. You may then be able to incorporate the Sub-Antarctic Islands.
