The Polar Expedition Cruise Specialist

Welcome to Polar Routes

Antarctica and the Arctic are some of the least-visited regions in the world, which is exactly what makes them the most breathtaking, exhilarating and truly memorable of destinations.

Polar Routes are the expedition cruise specialist. Our expert team of Travel Specialists have extensive knowledge of the ships, itineraries and destinations, and can give recommendations based on first-hand experience. 

In light of the current situation around coronavirus (COVID-19), Many of the operators that Polar Routes work with have introduced a number of flexible booking measures, please read our Relax and Book Policy.
