If you would like a cruise, but fancy doing something a bit more adventurous, you might want to think about a trip with Hurtigruten. They offer a number of destinations on the purpose built MS Fram, including Antarctica, Greenland and Spitsbergen, giving you the opportunity to see some amazing wildlife, including polar bears. They also offer a daily departure on their Classic Round Voyage on their fleet of ships, from Bergen right up to Kirkenes, and then back to Bergen. In the summer you will experience the Land of the Midnight Sun, and in the winter you can go in search of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.
Alternatively, you might like to sail under a fully rigged mast with Star Clippers, either in the Caribbean during the winter or perhaps in the Mediterranean during the summer.
Silversea Expeditions offers the opportunity see close-up some of the amazing wildlife on the Galapagos Islands on Silver Galapagos.
