A trip to the Arctic or Antarctic is a once in a lifetime experience and something that plenty of people will have on their buckets lists... But where should you go? And will you get to experience all that the polar regions have to offer?

Tour operator Polar Routes are set to hold a talk at the second Wildlife and Safari Travel Show when it returns to Harrogate Convention Centre on Saturday 12th October, and could help you discover the very best polar expedition holidays around. 

With mesmerising sights on offer, such as the northern coast of Norway or the mythical landscapes of Spitsbergen, to amazing wildlife experiences such as polar bear spotting and walking with penguins, Polar Routes offer a wide variety of cruise destinations perfect for adventurers and those wanting to travel.

Polar Routes are giving adventurers the chance to walk among penguin colonies and spot polar bears across the world's polar regions.

Martin Johnson, a Co-founder and Director of Polar Routes will be at the show alongside two experts to give visitors a glimpse into these extraordinary experiences, but also logistical advice on getting there:

"To a lot of people, these destinations are bucket list but actually working out how to get there, what kind of operator, what kind of ship, what kind of expedition you want to take is a bit of a minefield."

Polar Routes will have a stand at the Wildlife and Safari Travel Show to showcase different ships and itineraries to ensure adventurers are getting all that they want out of their expedition.

Fancy somewhere warmer?

If you're more of a hot weather holidaymaker, another company that will be at the Wildlife and Safari Travel Show when it returns to the Harrogate Convention Centre is African safari specialists Mahlatini Luxury Travel.

The travel company will be giving guests a glimpse into what they can experience throughout Africa, including gorilla trekking, witnessing the Great Migration and diving with sharks.
