Discover it with the best ice team on Earth
The number one draw for most Antarctic wildlife cruise travellers is: penguins. Gentoo, Adelie, chinstraps in the thousands; rockhopper, macaroni and king penguins in the Falklands; and king penguins at a staggering scale in South Georgia. Daily Expedition Reports have documented sightings of a rare black and a rare white penguin, as well as a lone Emperor colony at our farthest south.
Iconic, extraordinary & sometimes unexpected wildlife
To see a polar bear in the wild, the Arctic’s apex predator, is without a question a life-list must for many. Choose any of their Svalbard Arctic trip itineraries—Land of the Ice Bear: An In-Depth Exploration of Arctic Svalbard, Norway’s Fjords and Arctic Svalbard, or Svalbard, Iceland & Greenland’s East Coast—and venture into the sea ice where polar bears are most plentiful, as is their prey: the Atlantic walrus. Also, search for arctic foxes, reindeer, bearded and ringed seals, seabirds of every kind and look for a variety of whales: bowhead, humpback and blue under the midnight sun. And as we head into even more extreme latitudes like on our Exploring Greenland and The Canadian High Arctic and Epic 80°N itineraries we’ll add muskox and perhaps even the elusive narwhal to our wildlife list.
Wild animals without any fear of humans—remarkable
The wildlife of Galápagos is legendary for its lack of an instinctive fear of humans. Sea lions loll on the beach next to you. Birds land on your camera lenses and stand in the middle of the trail ignoring you as you carefully walk around them. And you can contemplate or photograph giant tortoises to your heart’s content, they graze on, undisturbed. Being able to get so close to such rare and wild creatures is a privilege, enchanting, and unforgettable.
Iconic and unexpected animals of the American West
Alaska is renowned for its iconic wildlife—whales, bears, and eagles. You’re certain to see them, but you’ll also discover much more. Strange and beautiful undersea creatures. Pods of orca and large groups of Steller sea lions. Bald eagles soaring and puffins swimming. Rough-skinned newts and carnivorous plants. Discover forests and seas brimming with life.
