Expedition Cruising

One journey, thousands of experiences. Experience an adventure cruise.

Unlike ‘cruising and voyages’, an expedition makes the inaccessible accessible and takes you to untouched destinations, bringing out the polar pioneer within you!

You’ll get the chance to take part in activities designed to suit all explorer levels and learn from highly knowledgeable and passionate crew, as well as enjoying lectures and educational programs to add meaning to your travel. You’ll immerse yourself in culture, wildlife and nature as well as being able to enjoy incredible food and stunning panoramic views onboard the purpose-built ships.

Expeditions to Greenland and Iceland are full of adventure with an abundance of dramatic natural beauty. Meet indigenous Inuit people, set sail in the wake of Old Norse explorers and enjoy the stunning national parks and tours on offer. Or set sail to Svalbard in the High Arctic where you will set out on search to spot the magnificent and protected polar bears!

Bentours also offer a wide variety of unforgettable voyages to our unique southernmost continent – Antarctica. Choose between several different expedition vessels, each with it’s own appeal. MS Midnatsol, (Midnight Sun) has a strong environmental profile and modern design and among the newest in the fleet; MS Fram, the largest and more comfortable of the trio; MS Hebridean Sky, recently transformed after a multi-million dollar refit into one of the finest small ships in the world; MS Expedition, medium sized and placing greater emphasis on a hands-on experience; MV Ocean Nova, offering a small intimate experience with return flights from Puntas Arenas to King George Island, where your vessel awaits; and the MV Akademik Sergey Vavilov, designed and built as a scientific research vessel and recently refurbished for a comfortable voyage.

With some brand new journeys available for 2017, add more value and life changing experiences to your travel and book an exciting expedition to a destination you’ve only dreamed of!
