The ship's team of 14 zodiacs enables passengers to travel safely and quickly from ship to shore for uniquely personal encounters with awe-inspiring wilderness. They’ll also take you up close and personal to glaciers, icebergs and the unique wildlife. Almost every day you’ll find yourself jumping aboard a zodiac and on each departure you will be accompanied by our team of experts whose education and experience combine to provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation of these incredible and remote regions.
For the more adventurous, our kayaking trips provide the opportunity to encounter the intimacy and power of the polar regions in ways very few people can lay claim to having experienced. Space is limited, however, so be certain to book in advance. To add-on kayaking to your arctic cruise simply call us, let us know your booking number and your travel specialist will add it to your expedition. Please note we are unable to offer kayaking expeditions on the Norwegian Fjords and Polar Bears Cruise (XVNFNX).
Go eye to eye with an inquisitive whale—it’s a rare and special moment that will carve itself into your memory. Kayaking isn’t just an outdoor adventure, it’s an opportunity to experience these remote regions from another vantage point. A limited number of lucky adventurers will venture out to sheltered bays and areas known for calmer waters and take part in group kayaking trips led by our experienced and skilled leaders. No other activity gets you as close to the natural environment!
Book our kayaking excursions and you'll trade the Zodiac for a twin kayak - we aim to get you out on the open waters as often as possible and whenever weather permits.
