BSpoke Tours has launched its first ocean expedition cruise portfolio, as part of its recently launched travel agent division.

The company, which is working with Silversea Expeditions, Quark Expeditions, Hurtigruten and Exodus Travel, has departures dates this year, 2019 and 2020.

“In response to customer demand, we’ve selected several expedition cruises to form a premier portfolio of cruising trips,” said Becky Joiner, cruise programme manager at BSpoke Tours.

“Our passion for finding unforgettable experiences for our guests has steered us to curate a range of extraordinary cruise adventures in some of the world’s least visited and most impressive wildlife wilderness regions.”

Speaking at a launch event in London, Ben Roseveare, activities director at BSpoke, explained that there are currently 20 expedition cruises available in Antarctica, the Arctic and the Galapagos, although this will increase over time.

“There are a number of activities [on an expedition cruise]. You can cross-country ski, kayak, climb a mountain, or take a hike.

“It’s like nothing else you have experienced before – it’s magical.”

An example itinerary is the 16-day Antarctic Peninsula voyage with Silversea, on board Silver Cloud. Prices for this start from £11,430ppincluding one night’s hotel accommodation, charter flights from Santiago to Ushuaia, and zodiac excursions.
