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 seasoned 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’ll take you to where there are no paths at all. Will you be content to take another cruise? Or would you prefer to cruise 1,000 feet over the untouched polar wilderness in a twin-engine helicopter? The choice is yours: Do you want to go on vacation—or go on the expedition of a lifetime?
We use our helicopters for more than just flightseeing! Ultramarine’s two twin-engine Airbus H145 helicopters are designed to take travelers deeper into the Polar Regions than any other helicopter in its class. Our helicopters mean our Expedition Team can move people 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.
