The outbound tourism branch of Xingzhi – Tripolers was set up in 2009.
Tripolers are pioneers – the first Chinese company specialising in Polar travel, and the first Chinese travel enterprise to become a member of International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO). Uniquely for China, Tripolers also employ experts to run the tours – including scientists with Polar experience.
Since its foundation, Tripolers have sent more than 2,000 Chinese travellers to both Antarctica and the Arctic, with trips to geographic North and South Poles being the company’s speciality.
These unique trips are affordable by the fortunate few – the elite of the Chinese business has travelled to the Poles with Xingzhi, further enhancing the company’s influence and business network. For example, Mr Wang Shi, the founder of Vanke, China’s largest real estate company is a trusted long term client and partner and has done both of his polar trips with Tripolers to achieve the 7 + 2 feat – seven summits (reaching the top of the highest mountain on every continent) and the two poles.
Best put, Tripolers specialize in “luxury adventure” trips for small, exclusive groups. Chinese travellers often lack language skills to travel independently, and traditionally the Chinese also prefer social travel. We offer exclusive tours of the Amazon, the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Canadian Arctic to photograph polar bears, and also introduce new itinerates such as Brazilian Pantanal.
