A new luxury cruise agency specialising in curated expeditions to the North Pole has launched, pledging to bring ‘unprecedented experiences in some of the least explored corners of the earth.’

From the Geographic North Pole to the Northwest Passage, icebreaker cruises in the furthest reaches of the polar regions to Antarctica, each cruise means guests can follow in the footsteps of the greatest polar explorers, founders say.

North Pole Cruises founder Andy Marsh says, “North Pole Cruises is the culmination of a lifelong passion for exploration. For the first time in history, we introduce exclusive expeditions to remote parts of the polar regions in Greenland and Antarctica, previously off-limits to regular ships.

“Our aim is to provide travellers with not just a trip, but a journey that will leave them forever changed. It’s not just a vacation; it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, tailored for those with a thirst for exploration.”

North Pole Cruises has partnered with the groundbreaking (and icebreaking) cruise ship Le Commandant Charcot, launched in 2021 to give travellers the opportunity to delve into the untouched beauty of these icy landscapes in unparalleled luxury.

Since its inaugural journey in 2021, Le Commandant Charcot has made history time and again. It was the first passenger ship to reach the Geographic North Pole and the southernmost navigable latitude in the Ross Sea; then, in 2022, it navigated the treacherous McClure Strait, offering passengers a historic voyage through the Canadian Northwest Territories.

In 2023, Le Commandant Charcot embarked on the first-ever half-circumnavigation of Antarctica, covering over 14,400 kilometres and venturing to Pine Island Bay in the Amundsen Sea – offering its passengers views they will never forget.

Andy adds: “This is just the beginning: in 2025, North Pole Cruises will add two new icebreaker cruises to Antarctica to its offerings, promising even more opportunities for adventure and discovery.


“At North Pole Cruises, not two expeditions are exactly the same, but each is meticulously planned to ensure the utmost comfort and safety of our guests,” Andy adds. “Our dedicated team boasts decades of expertise in navigating the polar regions and is committed to responsible tourism and environmental conservation.”
