Packing Tips

“There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” Ranulph Fiennes

We travel to the Polar Regions in the summer months when the weather isn’t that cold, however temperature can change unexpectedly.

We will explore by Zodiac (both cruising and as a means to shore landings) and on foot so it's important to have a waterproof outerlayer, that includes waterproof pants, gloves and hat. Quark Expeditions provides you with a waterproof parka which is yours to keep, and will lend you a pair of waterproof expedition boots for the duration of your voyage.

Reminder:  If you arrive on the ship and realize you forgot to pack something, not to worry!  Our onboard Polar Boutiques carry a range of clothing items and practical gear which are available for you to purchase.  

You’ll receive a FREE yellow expedition parka when you embark on your voyage (yours to keep). PLUS Quark provides waterproof boots (loaned to you for the duration of your voyage).
