High Arctic Explorer

High Arctic Explorer High Arctic Explorer

You cannot cruise around the High Arctic without becoming an adventurer yourself.

You’ll be following in the wake of explorers seeking the infamous Northwest Passage, and those who set out to rescue them! You’ll watch polar bears hunting seals on the ice, see beluga whales and witness huge clouds of whirling seabirds. You’ll photograph achingly beautiful fjords and mighty glaciers from tiny Zodiac boats.

And you’ll be sailing aboard a specially ice-strengthened ship – a one-time scientific vessel designed for polar research – with accommodation for up to 92 passengers. You’ll observe marine wildlife from a 360˚ observation lounge and explore the shore with expert guides.

Lead in prices below are based on a Standard Twin Cabin with private bathroom and are cruise only. However, we would be happy to arrange any pre or post cruise accommodation as well as international flights upon request.
