Follow in the oar strokes of the Vikings, the first European Explorers to the Arctic, with an ice-breaking luxury expedition to the Arctic Circle.
You’ll embark off the north coast of Norway’s Svalbard Archipelago, in search of white and grey beluga whales before moving north into a frozen and remote world, passing hulking icebergs and spectacular fjords, and navigating broken ice fields.
Enter a realm wear the polar bears rule the frozen terrain, orcas the frigid seas and indigenous nomads herd reindeer and caribou as they have done for thousands of years.
Both cruise ships started life as research vessels, before being converted into passage ships. They’re well equipped with luxury amenities including a spa and wellness centre, gym, deck bar and 360-degree observatory.
As well whale and wildlife watching, activities on your voyage can include sea kayaking and hiking expeditions inland.
Part of the wonder of an Arctic Cruise is that no two cruises are ever the same. The hostile and ever-changing environment means that itineraries can change at a moments noticed, leading you to unexpected delights like huge colonies of seals or pods of killer whales.
