Sail to the Arctic Circle and discover wondrous wildlife that abounds in the frontier. Hunt for polar bears (with your cameras, of course) on the pristine, rugged island of Spitsbergen. Follow in the footsteps of the great Polar explorers through the Northwest Passage, where you will visit traditional Inuit communities and learn about whaling history. West Greenland boasts Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its enormous ice sheet and intense sounds of a swift glacial ice stream calving into a fjord covered by icebergs. Greenland is also an ideal setting for whale watching. These exquisite moments are just a hint of what you may encounter with Quark Expeditions, innovators in polar adventure travel. Polar travel is all Quark Expeditions does and they are passionate about ensuring every one of their passengers has the experience of a lifetime.
