1. Polar travel is all we do:
 we are the leaders in polar adventure and we have been doing it for over 20 years! 

 

2. Our People:

3. Safety comes first:

When you’re traveling with Quark, you can rest assured that you are traveling with one of the most responsible and safety-conscious companies in the Polar expeditions industry.

 

4.  Choice of Destination: Our itineraries are designed by the leader in polar adventures. 

 

  • In Antarctica: We have the largest and most diverse fleet of passenger ships in the Antarctic operated by one entity. We deliver more departures and a greater variety of itineraries than any other company.
  • In the Arctic: We go higher and farther than anyone else. Our nuclear-powered icebreaker crushes its way to the North Pole.  Our Polar Adventure Ships let us explore Spitsbergen, Svalbard, add kayaking options, and to experience channels and bays through which our icebreakers cannot sail.
