There are few places on the planet that have captured hearts, minds and imagination quite like the Poles. These icy destinations represent a golden age of heroes, evoking images of brave explorers with a glint of defiance and determination in their eyes’, ships paralysed by ice, hot-air balloons forging into unchartered regions and packs of huskies working to bring their masters home to safety. You can experience all these adventures with our polar expeditions.

Why travel to the Polar regions

Amundsen, Scott, Shackleton, Mawson, Ada Blackjack, Rasmussen, Nansen…these are just some of the adventurers who risked their lives to pioneer the discovery of Antarctica and the Arctic during a period of history when national pride was of paramount importance and being the first really mattered.

Fortunately, with our luxury polar expeditions, we need not embrace the hardships of the past to experience the beauty and wonder of the Poles today. From the penguin colonies of Antarctica and the polar bears of Svalbard to the vast ice and fascinating cultures of the Northwest Passage, these otherworldly lands and their captivating creatures are now accessible to us all.

Purpose-built expedition ships offer the opportunity to reach the ice in comfort and style, accompanied by highly experienced teams who will guarantee that you make the most of every opportunity during your journey.

The choice of vessels and itineraries is extensive, which is why we have used our 15+ years of experience in polar trip planning, our knowledge of the boats, guides, destinations and the intricate laws that accompany these voyages to select only the ones that we believe are the best.

These remarkable regions are truly astonishing, and we will ensure that your polar exploration will be just that.

I would recommend this package…

I would recommend this package unconditionally.
The itinerary Claire planned was perfect. The lodges were all outstanding in comfort and service. Our Ultimate guide was superb – extremely knowledgeable in all areas, excellent driver and a pleasure to be with for 10 days.
We were obliged to cancel our tour last year; Claire rebooked everything for this year, avoiding cancellation fees.

It worked like clockwork from the minute we stepped off the plane to leaving our magnificent hotel Manzana Kemplinski in Havana .
Punctuality to perfection all the way.
Our specialist guides on tours in and outside the old city we’re very knowledgeable and informative , bringing the character and history of this fascinating island vividly into our minds in a warm manner and the classic American cars put us well in the mood.
However , the star of this spectacular show was our full time guide / carer and now close friend, Alejandro, a 35 year old Cuban , proud of his beloved country and also full of deep knowledge of its history and worldly affairs spoken in fluent English. Nothing was too much trouble for this attentive thoughtful young man 24/7.
Thanks to all who arranged and looked after us so well on this truly memorable experience . David & Felicity

Cazenove + loyd planned us a trip of a lifetime for our honeymoon. Every detail was thought off and all of our transfers were seamless. We visited 4 South American countries in 3 weeks and the trip was planned to our budget with the most wonderful itinerary. The guides we had were incredible and we really felt we we’re taken off the beaten track so we got to experience the wonderful countries with far less other tourists.
We will 100% be using them again.
