Arctic Express: Greenland’s Northern Lights

Voted one of the top destinations to see in 2015 by the New York Times, Greenland has been dramatically shaped—geographically and culturally—by the ice that dominates and is one of the best places to witness the magic of the Northern Lights. The best way to experience the rugged beauty of this nature-lover’s paradise is by ship. Our East Greenland fly-in expeditions make this amazing destination more accessible than ever.

Special Guests

Learning first-hand from scientists, researchers, and special guests onboard is an eco-tourist's dream come true. Having a chance to meet these experts is truly inspirational. Our partnerships with international charities make for very rewarding and educational expeditions.

Falklands, South Georgia, and Antarctica: Explorers and Kings

This extended expedition encompasses the wildlife paradise of South Georgia, the remote Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), as well as the extraordinary beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Icebreakers

For a ship to earn its icebreaker class, it needs three special qualities: a strengthened hull, an ice-clearing shape, and the power to push through sea ice. Our icebreaker expeditions access regions not possible by other ships, and provide the unique experience of riding a vessel as it shatters through meters of ice.
