Reindeer are perfectly adapted to the arctic and don't need to pack!Reindeer are perfectly adapted to the arctic and don't need to pack!

So you have got your cruise to the polar regions booked! Now it's time for the next part of the adventure, planning and packing like a polar explorer. So what do you need for your expedition?

Why not start by following our quick guide on how to pack like an explorer?

First there are three essentials we believe everyone, when travelling anywhere abroad, needs and though this may sound obvious, you would be surprised how many people forget them!

In the winter months, you also experience the magnificent, "blue light", where the sun doesn't break the horizon and the sky is bathed in shades of pastel blue and pink. One of the best ways to visit Nordkapp is as part of one of our Norwegian Coastal Voyages

I'm forever blowing bubbles

We have been busy travelling and working but we thought now would be a good opportunity to update the blog with some of our favourite pictures and experiences from our recent travels. First up, a great picture of Dolphins from our trip to the Azores. These playful mammals often enjoy themselves with these fun activities, like blowing bubbles and are just one of the many marine species that can be seen while on our Whale Watching in the Azores holiday
