Welcome to the polar regions (we hope you brought a scarf). Apart from all the snow, Antarctica and the Arctic actually represent a hugely diverse range of climates, landscapes and cultures. In the south you’ll find the highest and the driest place one earth, endless kilometres of windswept ice, rocky shores and squawking penguin colonies. Pass above the Arctic Circle, however, and you enter a world of boreal forests, fjord lands, polar bears and snow-capped mountains lit up by the Northern Lights.

Want to see for yourself? We’re offering you the chance to save literally hundreds of dollars off selected Arctic and Antarctic adventures in 2015 and 2016. All you have to do is browse the trips below, pick your favourite, find a warm scarf and go exploring. Hurry, this offer ends 30 March '15.
