Why Quark?

Since 1991 and our first-ever tourism transit of the Northeast Passage, Quark has been blazing trails in polar adventure travel. Our trailblazing is just one reason we’re a uniquely qualified company to ensure you have a trip of a lifetime.

Six reasons why we are the Leader in Polar Adventures.

POLAR PIONEERS

Since 1991, our DNA has been about pushing and going further. This desire has brought more explorers to more places one can’t easily get to alone, for a quarter of a century. 

KNOWLEDGE & EXPERTISE

There is no substitute for expertise. Ours is so sought after, we actually set industry standards for safety. That’s the confidence you’ll feel on every Quark expedition.

PEOPLE & PASSION

Quark staff effortlessly share their knowledge
— with the enthusiasm of doing so for the first time
— resulting in deep, personal connections and enrichment at every turn.

SWEATING THE DETAILS

A polar trip is something that many people experience only once in a lifetime, so it has to be perfect. This is why we profoundly appreciate details, and why we sweat the small stuff.

RELENTLESS INVESTIGATION

Nature is in constant motion, and no company appreciates this more than Quark. Trying harder is tough work, but the moment we can show you something others can’t, it makes it all worthwhile.

BALANCING RISK & REWARD 

Traveling to remote regions requires a profound understanding of risk versus reward. At Quark, we didn’t read the book on Polar Region safety— we authored it.
