Right now snuggling up in an armchair with travel videos may be best antidote that yearning for places far away. As the world is still in lockdown mode, most of us long for the day we can freely explore the world once again. And your clients can start to dream with some inspiration from images and videos of great travel experiences.

That’s why Poseidon Expeditions is offering up an online travel menu of virtual expedition cruises in Antarctica in winter and the the wild Arctic in summer and even the geographic North Pole. Experiences include, among others, kayaking among the icebergs, safe encounters with whales and polar bears and a helicopter flight over the Top of the World.

“If you have the travel bug fever, we recommend treating symptoms with polar ice – via our extraordinary videos,” said Steve Wellmeier of Poseidon Expeditions.

Poseidon also has introduced a “relaxed” reservation policy for new bookings for the 2021 Arctic and 2021-22 Antarctic seasons aboard the 114-passenger Sea Spirit. For these new bookings in 2021-22 the deposit is reduced from 20 percent to 10 percent, and travelers have two months before the deposit is due.
