Fantastic experience


We had the most amazing expedition. The Quark Expedition Team are an amazing, talented, knowledgeable, friendly bunch of people I have ever met. We felt very privileged to have shared such a wonderful voyage with them. We were also looked after by the hotel staff who again are an amazing group of people. Thank you ALL so much. You ALL work so very hard to make it the most memorable trip of a lifetime. A big well done to you ALL.

Thank you Quark


We highly recommend Quark, for an exceptional cruise to the Arctic. It was a magical, well organised tour on a beautiful and comfortable small ship.
Their staff were outstanding,a very knowledgeable and professional team that had a passion for their field of interest in History, Geology, Marine biology, and Ornotholgy. They took care to make a minimal environmental impact on the Ice and provided a wide variety of excursions for groups at all physical levels.
The ship was immaculate and the dining room deserved an award for excellent food..all served with a smile!!!
Their aim was to provide a tour that excelled and it was hugely successful.
Many thanks for a trip of a lifetime, Nan and Brian Abbott

Adventure of a lifetime


We two septuagenarians spent 11 nights on Ocean Nova exploring the amazing Arctic landscape.The whole trip was a wonderful experience. The ship's crew were outstanding in making us feel welcome. The food was as good, sometimes better ,than any we have experienced on 5star cruise ships.
The leaders with their expertise had the ability to engage, educate and enlighten us on all kinds of subjects , with
humour and enthusiasm.We could not praise the trip highly enough. It was a trip of a lifetime.



As usual great organisation, great circuit going around spitzbergen. Food was ok but not fantastic. Ship was somewhat old. Anyway a wonderful trip
