Great experience. I loved every single moment of this trip, even when the Drake Shake tested us seriously. It was a privilege to be there. I wish to go back... Ross Sea? Weddel Sea?... Who knows... For the time being I enjoy the memories. Top staff. Thank you!!!

Our 9-night expedition was a series of high points, from polar bears (single males, mothers with cubs) to blue whale, tundra and arctic fox. The expedition team and ship's crew did their utmost to provide an exceptional experience, going out of their way to spot and allow us to approach the wildlife, yet always keeping as a priority the wellbeing of the animals. The ship itself is purpose-built for wildlife expeditions and it shows in all details, from the wide and accessible bridge to the large deck spaces and huge windows in all common areas. Overall a wonderful experience! Thank you very much indeed :-)

Had a fantastic day trip to Lapland. Can't recommend it enough. All of the activities were brilliant, and all of the staff we encountered were professional, courteous, but most importantly fun. It's great value for money.

    About Oceanwide Expeditions

    Based in the Netherlands, Oceanwide Expeditions specializes in polar expedition-style cruises to both the Arctic and Antarctic. Operating since 1996, they’re one of the pioneers in the field. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out? 

    They offer an excellent series of educational lectures onboard and a wide variety of potential activities on shore, which may include camping, snowshoeing, kayaking, and mountaineering for the truly adventurous. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    Oceanwide Expeditions passengers are curious about the world, its cultures, and its wildlife, and are willing to pay for a top-notch experience. 

    Where Do They Operate?

    Throughout the Arctic and Antarctic regions and a bit beyond. “Arctic” itineraries include remote Scottish islands – the Hebrides, Orkneys and Shetlands – as well as the Faroes, Iceland, Greenland, Spitsbergen (Svalbard), and the Lofoten islands of Norway. Antarctic itineraries include the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the South Orkney Islands and the Ross Sea. One spring cruise includes remote, seldom visited South Atlantic islands such as Tristan da Cunha, St. Helena, and Ascension Island. 

    How Does It Work?

    The company owns a fleet of four vessels capable of breaking through pack ice and small enough to navigate their way through narrow passages. Weather permitting, the ships make two landings per day, with passengers ferried ashore via zodiacs. 

    Why Travel With Them? 

    These are truly memorable expeditions to some of the most remote spots on the planet.
