About this book

People have been cruising into polar waters since the late nineteenth century, yet this activity has not been documented, other than in a couple of academic texts. Of Penguins and Polar Bears draws on the experience and resources of experts in the field to describe where people went, the ships they cruised on, the places they visited and the itineraries they followed. Encompassing the Arctic Passages, the Canadian Artic, Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard and the Antarctic regions, the book goes also reveals what the modern-day visitor to the polar regions can expect to experience, from the vessels to the wildlife and beyond.
