If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime vacation, TravelWild Expeditions can make your dream come true! This specialty polar cruise operator boasts 50 ships that venture out on expeditions to arctic destinations. Their destination choices include such places as the Antarctic Peninsula, Spitsbergen, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands.

Why would anybody willingly vacation to a place where the average summer temperature is -17.5° F and the average winter temperature is -76° F? Because these trips offer views and experiences that very few people will ever have the chance to see.

The wildlife and scenery to be experienced include towering icebergs, penguin colonies, polar bears, reindeer, humpback whales, elephant seals, arctic foxes and fjords. Not only are all of these animals and sights basically untouched by the human race, but due to global warming, their existence is in danger. Stats for Polar Vacations Trending: Older & Chilly
