Antarctica and the Arctic; on the surface, these fabled regions appear similar. Each is located at the edge of the map, where the world turns on its axis. Both are pristine and ice-covered, characterised by their wild elements and supreme natural beauty. And together, they play host to some of the natural world’s most beloved wildlife – from walruses and polar bears, to the majestic emperor penguin.
But for all their similarities, the Arctic and Antarctica are poles apart – separated not just by distance, but by geography, wildlife, and human influence. And it’s these differences which make each region so compelling and unmissable, cementing them as the ultimate beyond-the-horizon destinations for those travelling on board the World’s First Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse.
With an ice rating of Polar Class 6, Scenic Eclipse can transport you to the wild wonder of the Poles in unrivalled comfort, luxury and safety. Never before have these enchanting, untouched regions felt so within reach – our ultra-luxury discovery yacht affording seamless passage to worlds scarcely seen.
Capable of accessing locations other ships simply cannot, the Scenic Eclipse is your gateway to wonder. Close encounters are all but guaranteed thanks to the ship’s collection of on board discovery vehicles, including two state-of-the-art discovery helicopters and Scenic Neptune, our 6-seater submarine*. So, from land, air or sea, the extraordinary wildlife and landscapes of the Arctic and Antarctica are yours to savour.
