INSIDER ADVICE

We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that - straight from the field - and it's updated in real time if things change.

ANTARCTICA

Everything you need to know about traveling to Antarctica. Including what time of the season is best for what you’re most keen to see.

ARCTIC

Everything you need to know about traveling to the Arctic. Which is a bit like our proverbial backyard/second home (because we’ve lived there).

WHAT TO BRING

Everything you need to know about what to bring on your trip. Including unusual stuff like why you might want goggles in Antarctica, or extra batteries in Svalbard.
