The Big Four – adventure: more cruises to the Arctic

The Big Four – adventure: more cruises to the Arctic

The Arctic is teeming with wildlife. However, while it might be great to see a whale or polar bear while on your travels, would you say that’s the main reason you are going? Many expedition cruise lines theme their voyages to suit those of a particular persuasion. Whether that’s photography, geology, anthropology or even astronomy – there are expedition cruises out there to suit virtually every taste. We’ve split the four below between wildlife-specific and other.  

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Expedition & Adventure guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Four feature, which gives you four cruise options to choose from. This week it’s cruises to the Arctic.

Cruise Adviser top tip

As with the UK, wildlife is not a year-round thing. Find out what it is your clients want to see and whether they are regularly sighted at that time of year
