Arctic Cruises

Land of the Ice Bears
Land of the Ice Bears

Experience nature in its purest form in this High Arctic Island when you join us for one of our unforgettable Arctic cruises. Ice-peppered fjords ring with the thunderous sound of glacial ice crashing to the sea. Walrus raise their sleepy heads to observe us. And everyone holds their breath as a polar bear is spotted and cameras click wildly. With our fully stabilized ice-class expedition cruise ship, we are able to probe the ice in search of wildlife. This Arctic cruise voyage is undertaken in the spirit of discovery. Nature is full of wonderful surprises and we are guided by her.
