Arctic

The thrill of the ice, plus the mystery of human history

The Expedition Experience

The Arctic is imbued with a romance—from the history of polar exploration, dauntless early Vikings, to the 18th- to 21st-century Northwest Passage and North Pole explorers. And, a reputation for extraordinary beauty and majesty, with its central symbol, the polar bear. We’ve explored it for over 30 years, which enables us to offer expeditions exploring several diverse sectors of the vast Arctic geography— and assure your safety and comfort.
