Arctic Cruises

Small ship, enormous adventures

Sea spray stings your cheeks and your heart beats faster as your vessel races through the chilly waters near a pod of walrus. This is the Arctic – this is adventure. Elusive polar bears plod along ice floes, birds circle and soar over Spitsbergen while mighty glaciers crash into the sea. Our ship and our expedition team combine to deliver excitement and indelible memories. We have an Arctic expedition cruise for you – bringing you closer to the rugged majesty of the north. The sea spray on your cheek will wipe away but once you've got the Arctic under your skin, it'll be with you forever.

Perks and parkas of the Arctic

Your Expedition parka

We wouldn’t send you all the way to the ends of the Earth without making sure you were prepared for the weather. All Expedition polar passengers will receive their own exclusive parka as part of the price of their trip. Parkas come in both men’s and women’s sizes, too!

Daily excursions

Getting off the ship to explore foreign waters and shores is the entire point of an expedition, right? We employ our own fleet of Zodiac boats and a purpose-built embarkation platform to get you ashore quickly and comfortably. And for an even closer look, ask about our Arctic kayaking options.

Kayak excursions

We’ll put our Zodiac team to work so you can plant your flag ashore and explore the floe edge. Encounter seabirds and their charming chicks, pack ice spotted with lazing seals, cliffs sporting a myriad of life and spectacular icebergs and landscapes.
