Guests can be assured of a truly immersive experience. Kayaking, for instance, brings you closer to the ocean surface, while camping brings you closer to nature and the polar terrain. There’s no shortage of ways to immerse you in the Arctic or Antarctic environment. In fact, Quark Expeditions offers the most off-ship activities in the Polar Regions!
Every voyage starts on a ship, but the real adventure happens off-ship. In the polar wilds, we camp, kayak, mountain bike, hike and fly by helicopter to remote locations. We paddleboard on icy waters, and rise above the polar landscape in hot air balloons. With the most adventure options available, how you experience the Polar Regions is entirely up to you.
Levels for all explorers
Our adventure options and off-ship activities are geared to all ages and level of fitness—and interests. You get to choose the outing that best suits you. Our hiking options, for instance, accommodate those looking for a leisurely stroll to take photographs to more advanced hikes for guests who want to pump up their heart rate. In our Greenland Adventure voyage, you can choose an energetic outing on helicopter-supported mountain biking, or opt for the overnight camping where you get to sit idly by a fjord and soak up the ambiance of South Greenland.
Helicopter innovations and more!
Innovation is in our DNA. Quark Expeditions was the first to offer SUP boarding and hot air ballooning in the Polar Regions. And now we’ve introduced helicopters—for more than just flightseeing. Guests choose from the largest selection of helicopter-supported activities in the Polar Regions, including alpine kayaking, Alpine Heli-trekking and Ice Sheet landings, to name a few.
