Frozen Planet from Classic Sailing
Walrus in the Arctic and
Penguins in Antarctica
You’re closer to nature on a tall ship
If you love the BBC Frozen Planet you'll love to see the real places on a Tall Ship voyage. No sailing experience required.
The BBC programme includes scenes from Spitsbergen, also known as Svalbard and our tall ship Antigua is an annual visitor to these amazing Artic Islands. Going ashore is quite complex due to the likely hood of polar bears and special precautions are always taken. Highly experienced guides tell you all about forthcoming trips ashore. Guide you when ashore and point out all the interesting features. It’s like having a young Richard Attenborough onboard.
Europa Antarctica Guides
Europa spends about a week exploring the fjords and shores of these historic islands and visiting colonies of Macaroni and King Penguins. She always receives a warm welcome from the South Georgia Authorites.
