Some of our most pioneering trips take place aboard a selection of epic expedition-grade cruise vessels, with hulls reinforced to withstand pack ice and crews adept at negotiating iceberg-strewn waters. The scale and natural beauty of Greenland's dramatic coastline or the staggering, pristine islands of Svalbard are best appreciated from just offshore, and there's no better way to see the ice caps than by boat. Hardy explorers can even choose to climb aboard a sturdy nuclear icebreaker ship to make their way to the north pole to stand on the thick ice at the very top of the world.
Joining one of these Arctic cruises offers the fascinating opportunity to reach remote landscapes rarely explored by other travellers, where weather and ice conditions guide the route and wildlife, such as migratory whales or Arctic seabirds, pass by on your journey. Many offer photography guides and expert lectures to keep you entertained during days spent onboard, and exhilarating excursions using RIB boats to get up close to wildlife or head ashore for land-based exploration.
Using a selection of hand-picked expedition boat services, we offer journeys around Greenland, Svalbard, Iceland and the Arctic.
