The Expedition Experience

Head to the top of the world for a spectacular voyage to the Arctic. Experience the majesty and unbridled beauty of this icy kingdom. Plan your trip today.

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 Arctic cruise expeditions exploring several diverse sectors of the vast Arctic geography— and assure your safety and comfort.
