The Arctic

Unlock the Mystery of Arctic Expeditions with Polar Travel Specialists

Journey with us to an incredibly vast and breathtaking place…

…where a giant sheet of ice links three continents and wildlife freely roams, swims and flies across them. Where for just three months each year the ice retreats, the sun emerges, temperatures rise and this incredible world comes alive, inviting us in.

This is the Arctic, warmer than Antarctica, and polar bears replace penguins.

The unforgettable Southern arctic peaks

The soaring peaks of the south are replaced by rolling hills, dramatic cliffs and sprawling tundra. Polar bears are kings, revered and feared by all, and the sea thrives with fabled creatures. The narwhal, with its unicorn like tusk, walruses, and beluga whales, ply the waters and even killer whales show a soft side, coming to the shallows for a gentle tummy rub on time rounded pebbles.

Canadian Arctic

The wild, remote Canadian Arctic is filled with Inuit settlements and tales of brave exploration by man and mammals. Dazzling scenery stretches to the horizon and the definition of ‘frontier’ needs no words.

Greenland

Greenland’s ‘iceberg factory’ pushes out 20 million tonnes of brilliant white skyscrapers, and soaring cathedrals with crystal spires.

Northern Norwegian Arctic

The northern Norwegian Arctic is more compact, luring headline hunting explorers and seabirds by the million, as you reach to within 100km of the North Pole.

The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) dances across the sky from August till April, giving you 8 months to experience this amazing sight.

We are unmatched with experience when it comes to Arctic Expeditions in polar regions, and really want to help you experience the magic of The Arctic.

Be immersed in the vastness, Be astounded by the wildlife, and Be inspired by the human determination to explore and succeed.

We look Forward to starting, and sharing the journey with you.

What our travellers say
Here are some of our favourite places in Arctic
CANADIAN ARCTIC
CANADIAN ARCTIC

Wildlife, history, and all encompassing skies crown the never ending landscapes. Reminders of exploration, trading outposts and even Cold War era bases, lie throughout. The area has huge amounts of wildlife which, due
to the vastness is spread over a large area. Our Arctic partners at One Ocean Expeditions have several hot spots they have found over the years for polar bears, giving you a great chance of seeing them.

NORWEGIAN ARCTIC - SVALBARD
NORWEGIAN ARCTIC - SVALBARD

Svalbard is a more compact destination so you don’t need to cruise far to see scenery, history and wildlife. Located less than 1,000km from the North Pole it is the best place for polar bears.
We focus on the north and west, being the most interesting, diverse and wildlife rich parts of the archipelago.

GREENLAND
GREENLAND

The largest, non-continental island in the world, and its least populated. Greenland is a vast, remote land with a unique culture. It brings ancient traditions to a modern world. Brilliantly colourful villages dot the whiteness. The
massive icecap produces all of
the Arctic’s soaring icebergs

THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE
THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE

In the 15C explorers started searching for a much hoped for passage through the Canadian Arctic linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, to open up trading routes. Many endeavours met with disaster.
In 1850 a way was finally discovered, and in 1906, Roald Amundsen completed the first passage from
Greenland to Alaska.

ICELAND
ICELAND

A tiny country with a population of a mere 250,000. Iceland offers incredible scenery and unparalleled geological attractions. If you want to visit a place where glaciers seem like they are reaching the skies, Iceland is definitely the place. It's a place where the steep valleys are filled with deep blue mountain lakes and is surrounded by green peaks. Hidden hot springs in secluded valleys far far away from civilisation, will relax and calm you as you take in the spectacular views.

NORTHERN LIGHTS
NORTHERN LIGHTS

Anyone fortunate enough the see the lights will be beaming with the memories for a long time. They’re like a huge theatre curtain flowing across the sky with colours ranging from yellow to green to
pink, to blue, with a million stars providing a spectacular background. Luckily Yellowknife in Canada has some of the best in mid Aug-Sep. Perfect to add to an Arctic trip
