Along the way, you’ll have the chance to spot leopard seals and breaching whales before being surrounded by towering glaciers and grounded icebergs in some of the world’s most remote regions. For those seeking an adrenaline-fueled activity, there will be the opportunity to immerse yourself within the bitter polar waters by taking part in the bucket-list ‘Polar-Plunge.’
