Our new Polar Cruising offerings are already proving popular with clients, and we’ve had particular interest in the two August cruises to the Franz Josef Islands. This remote archipelago, close to the North Pole and a key outpost in polar exploration, is a truly once-in-a-lifetime destination. It is only accessible for a very short time each year due to sea ice conditions, and a special permit is required to visit.
Furthermore, due to logistical difficulties it is not even certain whether any expeditions will operate to Franz Josef Land in 2013, so now is definitely the time to seize the day! There are two cruises this year, a 12 night voyage departing Kirkenes, in Norway, on August 9th, and an 11 night itinerary leaving on August 21st.
The beauty of Franz Josef Land
If you have always dreamed of visiting places few other have ever trodden; of following in the wake of true pioneers; and of seeing polar bears, seals, whales and walruses, then this is undoubtedly a unique opportunity. And to make it more attractive than ever, we are currently offering 10% off all cruises to the Franz Josef Islands!
