Ahh, Valentine’s Day. This celebration of love is upon us once again, when couples across the globe will be dreaming up special ways to spend the day with their loved one. Here at Aurora Expeditions, we believe that there’s no better way to share that love than to explore new places together.

For a romantic gesture and a holiday unlike any other, how about switching things up with a trip to the poles? Whether you’re crossing the Arctic Circle or sailing the breathtaking waters of Antarctica, here are a few ways a polar holiday is perfect for romance.

The couple that travels together…

When you travel as a couple in an area outside of your comfort zone, the experience can be a truly special one that can deepen your bond together. But you don’t have to take our word for it – a study by the U.S. Travel Association found that 72 per cent of couples believed that travel could inspire romance.

On a polar voyage with Aurora Expeditions, you’ll experience a whole new world together, creating holiday memories unlike any others. It’s also a unique way to celebrate those special milestones in your relationship, whether you’re renewing your vows or marking an anniversary.
