As the Leader in Polar Adventures, we explore the Polar Regions differently from everyone else. When you travel with Quark Expeditions, you’re exploring alongside the most experienced polar experts on Earth, setting foot where few ever will, and doing what few ever dream. Do you want to explore off the beaten path? We can take you to where there are no paths at all. Will you be content to just cruise? Or would you prefer to cruise 1,000 feet over the untouched polar wilderness in a twin-engine helicopter? With Quark Expeditions you won't just be on vacation—you’ll be on the expedition of a lifetime.
Let Us Lead You on an Expedition of a Lifetime
Exclusive Helicopter Adventures
We use our helicopters for more than just flightseeing! Ultramarine’s two twin-engine Airbus H145 helicopters are designed to take you deeper into the Polar Regions than any other helicopter in its class. Our helicopters mean our Expedition Team can move you to explore further once they arrive in the Polar Regions, to set foot where few humans have ever walked—something our competition can’t offer. Our helicopter-supported adventure options enable off-ship experiences exclusive to Quark Expeditions, such as Alpine Heli-trekking, Mountain Biking, Alpine Kayaking, Heli-Landing Heli-hiking, Ice Sheet Landings and more.
