For more than 35 years, Heritage Expeditions has pioneered conservation-driven small ship expedition cruises to some of the wildest, least-explored and biologically rich regions on the planet, including Antarctica, and Australia & New Zealand's Subantarctic Islands. Whether you're a twitcher, photographer, wildlife enthusiast, conservationist, or simply an adventurous spirit, Heritage Expeditions offer an unparalleled travel experience.
Heritage Expeditions operates its own Polar Research vessel Heritage Adventurer on expeditions to Antarctica and the Subantarctic Islands. Each authentic, small-ship expedition cruise is meticulously planned and led, ensuring travellers (up to 50 per voyage) maximise every opportunity to learn and experience as much as possible about the region, while at the same time minimising the impact of their visit.
Polar Routes work with all the best expedition in the polar regions, ensuring we have the very best selection of ships and itineraries to offer our clients. Our team of Polar Specialists are on hand to help you plan this outstanding trip of a lifetime, just let us know when you want to travel, the wildlife you want to see, the countries you want to visit, and the type of ship you want to travel on, and we will find the perfect voyage just for you.
A true pioneering expedition vessel, the Heritage Adventurer was purpose-built and specifically designed for polar exploration in 1991. The ship combines the highest ice class rating with an impressive history of travelling to the polar regions.
