This is a region of spectacular wildlife, from huge polar bears measuring up to 11 feet in length, shaggy muskox and impressively tusked walrus, to giant colonies of birds and seals. White beluga whales glide silently through the cold waters, which are also home to humpback and bowhead whales, bearded seals, and the mysterious narwhal.
Our ships are the same sturdy, ice-strengthened polar expedition ships used in Antarctica, and we also offer some exciting land-based expeditions. All our journeys are designed to get you close to the action with daily excursions by Zodiac, kayak or on foot along the shore. Itineraries are flexible and depend on ice and weather conditions and the movements of wildlife. Many of our journeys also include visits to remote Inuit communities and historic and archaeological sites dating back thousands of years.
Our program of Arctic cruises and tours have been carefully chosen to provide spectacular scenery and wildlife opportunities for our clients. Let our experienced Arctic staff tailor make a trip to suit your specific interests and budget.
