Antarctic / Arctic

From the top of the World to the bottom of the World

Antarctica

Antarctic Cruises | Arctic Cruises | Northern Lights

Antarctica is remote and untamed, a wildlife paradise and adventurer’s playground. Those privileged to visit feel nature’s power, both in her storms and stunning beauty. Shackleton and Crean left a legacy of epic survival tales, scientific discoveries and historical sites. Like them, going south is possibly the greatest experience of our lives.

Platinum Travel can carry you to a paradise of ice-clad mountains, islands raucous with wild animals and comfortable passage through a glorious maze of sheltered channels and inlets. We’ll visit a unique continent, where penguins are curious, not afraid; seal pups sniff our gumboots and the cycle of life is on show. We deal with all the major Antarctic operators so the choice is yous but we are here to help. 

Each voyage differs with destination and seasonal change. Join us on the adventure of a lifetime! We feature cruises from ice breakers to luxury six star, all inclusive.

The Arctic

There is so much to see and do in the Arctic. For centuries, generations of sailors have attempted to conquer the vast frozen expanses of the Arctic, Do it in style and comfort with Platinum Travel. The wildlife is abundant, whether it be Polar bears, Walrus, Orca and humpback whales, or sea otters and seals. The people are fascinating with the famous Inuit and Koryak people in the Arctic far north. Whatever your choice or budget there is something for everybody in the Arctic.

We feature cruises from ice breakers to luxury six star, all inclusive.

The Northern Lights

The Northern Lights are one of nature’s great sights, see the multicoloured show in which the night sky is suddenly lit up with a wondrous glow that twists and swirls like nothing you would ever have experienced.

It occurs most commonly in the Arctic region, where the lights are formed from fast-moving, electrically charged particles that emanate from the sun. These are driven towards the poles by the Earth’s magnetic field. In the northern hemisphere they are known as the aurora borealis.

The best time to see the lights is from late September to early April, with October /November and February / March thought to be the best times to travel.

At Platinum Travel we have various trips to the Arctic, both cruise based or land based to let you enjoy this amazing spectacle.

 

We have featured a range of Antarctic and Arctic cruises and expeditions from all the leading operators. Our portfolio includes three, four, five and six star cruises with varying itineraries and amenities, from luxury yachts and small ships to ice breakers.
