About us

Join us and other like-minded travellers to connect with nature.

We specialise in small group tours from the icy expanses of the polar regions to remote tropical islands of the south pacific.   We partner with like-minded regional experts and experienced and passionate guides to maximise opportunities to explore, experience and capture the beauty of the regions we visit.       

Our trips are designed to maximise time and space to explore and experience a destination in depth, to disconnect from daily life and reconnect with nature. We know this is best achieved with small groups of flexible and open-minded travellers who understand the unexpected adventures are often the most memorable and the people we share experiences with can become treasured lifelong friends.

Islands & Ice Travel’s founder, David Sinclair has travelled extensively since 1993 and has been guiding and leading expedition travel in the polar regions since 2007. David has personal experience of all the destinations we offer. David is an award-winning nature photographer and will accompany most if not all of our adventures and be on hand to assist you to capture fantastic images. You can see some of David’s images in the gallery below (scroll down) and in the image galleries for the various tours.

If you love wilderness, wildlife, adventure and photography our trips will be right up your alley.

Contact us if you have questions about any of our trips, or if you have a group and a trip in mind you’d like us to put together for you.
