Luxury Cruises in the Arctic
Reaching the North or South Poles is the pinnacle of exploration travel, and there are not many experiences that can top cruising through the Arctic Circle. In collaboration with leading specialist polar cruise providers, Lightfoot Travel has a portfolio of adventurous, luxury cruises in one of the most remote areas of our planet.
Most cruises start in the northern extremities of Scandinavia, navigating the landscapes of Svalbard before moving deeper into the glacial Circle. From the observation deck of your vessel, watch as a dramatic ice kingdom unfolds to reveal towering rock formations, vast glaciers, and fauna including walrus, polar bears and Arctic seabirds. Frozen peninsulas drift past you while seals sunbathe on their icy shores. Narwhal whales duel off the starboard side under the gaze of a stalking polar bear. Customised expeditions can include photography tours, kayaking, helicopter tours and even ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicles) trips.
