Polar Expeditions & Adventure Tours

Rugged, remote and untouched

In 1989, MT Sobek led the first Americans (including the first woman ever) to reach the South Pole via ski expedition. In the years since, we’ve distinguished our polar adventure tours through unique itineraries and our partnerships with the regions’ best operators. Polar Latitudes recruits the world’s leading scientists, naturalists, and environmentalists. Antarctica21 created the unique plane-and-expedition ship travel option. Plus, our Polar Promise means you benefit from MT Sobek’s in-house expertise for no added cost

We’ve crafted our charters around the best each polar season has to offer. In winter, visit the “Last Continent” Antarctica during its austral summer, breeding season for penguins, sea birds, seals, and whales. In summer, head north for the Arctic—land of the midnight sun—to seek polar bears, reindeer, walruses, and the narwhal.

Aboard small, highly navigable icebreaker vessels (not behemoth a cruise ship), we’ll navigate fjords of glaciers and hop into Zodiacs and kayaks to head ashore and experience wildlife up close.
