Crossing the Arctic Circle: Southern Expedition

 

Each January, the travel editors from the New York Times Magazine feature their top places to visit for the year ahead.  Not surprising,  the Arctic Circle was listed in the top 52 Places to Go in 2014.  Interested? Quark’s award-winning Three Arctic Islands expedition packs more wildlife and dramatic Arctic coastlines into 14 days than you can imagine.
