Poseidon Expeditions was named the world’s best operator of expedition cruises to the polar regions on Dec. 16, 2021, at the 28th annual World Travel Awards. Voting took place on the official website of the award from Sept. 27 to Oct. 24, 2021.
Every year, hundreds of companies from all over the world compete in the World Travel Awards. Participants include companies and brands from all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. The voting took into account the opinion of both experts in the tourism industry and travelers.
“Winning the World Travel Awards is a very rewarding for us, especially during this difficult time for tourism,” says Nikolay Savelyev, founder of Poseidon Expeditions. “For 22 years, we have been helping travelers discover the Polar Regions and are glad that global interest in such routes is growing. Expedition cruises are a special type of travel that allows you to see our world from a unique angle and even visit the North Pole, 90º north latitude. It is also important for us as a company to grow and become even better in order to continue creating an unforgettable experience of polar adventures and expanding the boundaries of the usual.”
For over 20 years, Poseidon Expeditions has been sharing the uniqueness of the world’s remote Polar Regions: the Arctic, Antarctic and North Pole. The team organizes expedition cruises, closer exploration of the surrounding areas in small boats, routes in the footsteps of great explorers, barbeques on the ice, polar plunges into the freezing water, Russian saunas at the North Pole, kayaking among icebergs, camping under the Antarctic sky, Northern Light viewing and polar wildlife camera safaris. The company also strives to raise awareness of anthropogenic climate change and the importance of preserving the unique Polar Regions. In the summer of 2021, under the leadership of Nikolai Savelyev, a special expedition took place. For the first time in history, world-famous explorer Fedor Konyukhov spent 10 days in a solitary drift at the North Pole to conduct scientific research.
Over the past two years, the travel industry has gone through major changes, not least to all those dictated by COVID-19 and resulting restrictions. Despite this, interest in travel continues to grow. With companies competing to both guarantee travelers’ safety and provide unforgettable experiences, receiving the award is more important than ever, said Savelyev.
