A trip to the Polar region is astoundingly beautiful and memorable.
Romantics can snuggle up in a secluded private hideaway removed from civilisation, or head out on to pristine white slopes. Adventure-seekers can fly high above breathtaking peaks or hike across arctic wastelands.
While the cities and other popular sights can be busy, we've rounded up some of the most exclusive places for you to stay. From helicopter flights to penguin spotting, these luxury Polar travel experiences are the best way to explore this magnificent region.
Whichaway Camp, Antarctica
Make yourself at home in an ultra-luxurious pod in the middle of an other-worldly landscape at Whichaway Camp in Antarctica. The six spacious fibreglass pods combine space age technology with comfort and eco-friendliness. The main part of the camp includes a cosy dining room, library and kitchen.

Deplar Farm, Iceland
Head to the north of the country for an Incredible Icelandic experience at Deplar Farm. When the weather is good, fill your days with heli-skiing, fishing and snowmobiling. With a private concierge on hand, a stay at this sprawling once working sheep farm is both extremely opulent as well as traditional.
There are 13 en-suite rooms to choose from, and an indulgent indoor-outdoor salt water pool. Catch a ride up into the surrounding peaks in a helicopter and ski down them towards the ocean, or explore the wilderness on horseback or snowmobile.
Lyngen Lodge, Norway
Gaze out at the pristine Lyngen Alps and fjord from a cosy traditional lodge. For a completely exclusive experience, book all eight rooms and make the most of being surrounded by nature high above the Arctic Circle. The pine lodge is geothermically heated and has a grass insulated roof.
The spectacular scenery is just waiting to be discovered – whether you fancy dog sledding, snowshoeing, glacier trekking or skiing. And in the summer months, when the winter sun is up, be prepared for some gorgeous photographic opportunities and fjord safaris.
Loggers Lodge, Swedish Lapland
Personalised service and attention to detail are top of the list at Loggers Lodge. With space for just two people, it’s the only private lodge in the area, and apart from the team who cooks for you, there are no neighbours for miles. It’s all about complete privacy. A large fireplace in the middle of the timber cabin makes for a cosy and romantic atmosphere.
While you are out exploring, traditional meals are prepared for you by a private chef, and accompanied by storytelling when you return. Some of the activities you can opt for include ski touring, snowshoeing, ice fishing and hiking.
