For something seriously unique, join Pelorus and OceanSky Cruises in this world-first expedition to the North Pole where you’ll be one of just a handful of people to step off an airship onto the endless white desert.

Your journey starts in the most northern city on the planet, Longyearbyen in Svalbard, where you will board the airship. Flying low and slow towards the pole, the unique route will see you searching for wildlife (think polar bears and whales) through the big panoramic windows and sections of glass floor. Sip on cocktails and enjoy a fine dining experience in a setting unlike any other while floating over icebergs.

Wake up in one of the most remote places on earth: the North Pole. From snowmobiling and skiing to Arctic safaris and zodiac sailing, there’s a seemingly endless roster of activities. Enjoy lunch out on the snow (there isn’t any land here so you’ll actually be walking on continental ice) before starting your panoramic journey back over the arctic landscape. This is a flying experience like no other.

Antarctica – Heli-skiing and Forgotten Wrecks

INQUIRE NOW

Be among a select few to discover the most inaccessible place on Earth: Antarctica. Pelorus is pioneering heli-skiing, allowing you to reach the untouched peaks of the Antarctic peninsula. With yachts and two helicopters at your disposal, you’ll be able to ski further inland than ever before, being dropped off at one summit before flying on to the next. And, with the best ice pilots and expedition leaders and equipment fit for the harshest of climates, your heli-skiing adventure will go as smoothly as the slopes themselves.

But this life-changing experience on the seventh continent doesn’t stop at skiing. Explore the peninsula via kayak or ice climbing, or discover an Antarctic shipwreck with a support vessel of scientists and submarines in tow. But to fully immerse yourself in these icy depths, head out in a submersible to dive and see the 300-year-old shipwreck up close.
