Arctic Cruises

Embark on an Arctic cruise that promises an unparalleled journey into the pristine wilderness of the North. Aboard a well-equipped expedition vessel, you'll navigate icy waters, tracing the path of explorers through rugged landscapes, towering glaciers and enchanting fjords.

As you voyage deeper into the Arctic realm, anticipate awe-inspiring encounters with a variety of wildlife, from graceful whales and elusive arctic foxes to majestic walruses and seals. The star attraction, the polar bear, might even make an appearance. Guided by seasoned experts, you'll explore historic settlements, observe seabird colonies nesting atop dramatic cliffs and be immersed in a unique way of life. From the jaw-dropping vistas in Greenland, to the magical wildlife of Svalbard, Arctic cruises offer a blend of thrilling adventure, rich history and the rare opportunity to witness the delicate balance of life in this remote and captivating environment.

Highlights of the Arctic

The Arctic is home to some of the rarest and most magical animals on the planet. Majestic whales breach the icy waters, including humpbacks and orcas, while adorable arctic foxes dart across the snow-covered landscape. Alongside the vessel, mighty walruses and seals can be seen resting on ice floes or hunting for fish in the crisp waters. The rarest find and the star attraction of the Arctic is the awe-inspiring polar bear. Those lucky enough to spot these majestic predators in their natural habitat will remember the experience for the rest of their lives.

Discover Svalbard 

An Arctic cruise in the northern Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard is an incredible expedition. Alongside the well-trodden paths, discover the less-explored island of Kvitoya, a land almost entirely veiled in a pristine ice cap. As you traverse the icy waters, gaze at the varied glaciers that adorn the landscape, from the awe-inspiring grandeur of the 14th of July Glacier to the majestic expanse of the Schweigaardbreen Glacier.
