Arctic Expeditions

The Arctic – still one of the last frontiers on earth. It is the place of Viking conquest and boasts a rich collection of wildlife, including the polar bear, walrus, musk ox and narwhal. Unlike Antarctica, the Arctic region is home to small communities of people who have developed some of the hardiest societies on the planet.

The region spans the Arctic Ocean and covers land areas in parts of Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, and the United States (Alaska) as well as Sweden and Finland.

Quark Expeditions has been the world leader in polar adventures for over two decades and successfully operated many first-ever voyages here, including the first Transpolar Bridge across the North Pole, and the first Northeast Passage.
