Antarctica Cruise Vacations & Experiences

Visiting Antarctica is limited to just a few months a year when summer’s warmth melts the surrounding waters allowing ships to come and go. Penguins gather along the shoreline by the thousands, seals and whales fill the seas, and you are a guest to view this amazing life cycle on the coldest continent on Earth. The history of Antarctica explorations come to life during evening presentations. This is a dream come true destination for wildlife lovers, botanists, biologists, geologists, and photographers. Let Accent on Travel be your guide in making this once-in-a-lifetime experience truly perfect!

Arctic Vacations & Experiences

Crossing into the Arctic circle is a historic moment for many, but exploring the coastlines of the Arctic in search of walrus and polar bears is even more momentous. By way of your Arctic cruise ship, you will visit some of the most remote towns in the world in wonder of their capacity to deal with the harsh climate and limited access to creature comforts. If you are interested, the travel advisors at Accent on Travel can time your visit for a better chance to see the night sky coming alive with the mystical Northern Lights. Perhaps viewing the Northern Lights while overnighting in a glass-domed room is on your wish list of travel experiences? We can make that exclusive vacation happen for you!

What is the best time to go to Antarctica and the Arctic?
November to March is the summer in Antarctica, which allows the ships passage through the melted ice and allows you to enjoy viewing the unique wildlife during the longer daylight hours. Wildlife spotting in the Arctic is better between June and August when land animals are more active, while later summer months give the opportunity to spot the Aurora Borealis if you’re lucky. Speak to our team today and allow us to create the ideal journey at the right time of year to suit your travel preferences for travel to Antarctica and the Arctic.
