Traveling to the end of the earth for Arctic wonders may seem, well, like the end of the world — but thanks to G Adventures and National Geographic Expeditions, travelers seeking frozen tundra littered with incredible wildlife can actually visit the end of the world.


Arctic Penguins in Antarctica
Seeing penguins anywhere is a great time, but there’s no greater expedition than the end of the Earth: Antarctica. Traveling to Antarctica is not the simplest task, but most epic expeditions aren’t — and for good reason.


For travelers seeking a unique getaway, G Adventures, among many others, offer expertly led tours to the polar destination. There is something majestic about the vast frozen landscape, also home to 17 penguin species, including the mighty emperor.


Narwhals in the Arctic Circle
In keeping with the newly established bitter-cold theme, the Arctic Circle is another hot spot for incredible and unique wildlife. The Circle includes the frigid waters off the coasts of Greenland, Russia and Canada and is home to narwhals, rare tusked whales often nicknamed the unicorn of the sea. With just 80,000 left in the wild, these incredible creatures are worth the trip.


With National Geographic Expeditions, guests can see wildlife, stunning frozen landscapes and maybe even the midnight sun and aurora borealis.

EzPacking Transparent Toiletry Bag

Plastic-averse travelers may shudder at the thought of using a resealable, zip-closed plastic bag for travel-sized liquids each and every time they travel. While some sturdier brands can be used multiple times, there’s a possibility the plastic could rip or the zipper could malfunction, therefore resulting in a free-for-all liquid disaster in your luggage. More secure toiletry bags can be safer bets, but fancy fabrics and designs can conceal the contents within, making them futile travel companions when it comes to TSA screenings.
