Scandinavia and the Arctic

Dominated by the polar ice caps, the northern Polar Regions are amongst the most inhospitable and driest landscapes on Earth. Lands of perpetual snow and ice, where the long winter darkness can last up to six months, these staggeringly beautiful regions are also home to a dazzling array of life, both on the land and in the rich, icy waters that surround them.

The northern polar region includes the ice-covered Arctic Ocean, Greenland, Iceland and parts of North America, Russia and Scandinavia. Characterised by cold winters and cool summers, these northern Polar Regions are home to indigenous peoples and resilient coastal communities, Arctic vegetation and a rich mix of wildlife, from polar bears and walrus, to baleen whales and orcas.

This is a remote and beautiful world that sees average winter temperatures drop to below - 40º C and the dark polar night regularly lights up by the unearthly shimmering displays of the Aurora Borealis. There are few places on earth that can boast such a grand physical presence, whether it be the haunting sight of the treeless tundra, the spectacular fjords of eastern Greenland or the high lava deserts and volcanoes of the Icelandic coast.

Most cruises will provide you with a parka and boots, but please bring plenty of layers, waterproof trousers, gloves and a hat.

Take plenty of lip balm - sub zero temperatures aren't kind to your lips!
