The Arctic – still one of the last frontiers on earth. It is the place of Viking conquest and boasts a rich collection of wildlife, including the polar bear, walrus, musk ox and narwhal. Unlike Antarctica, the Arctic region is home to small communities of people who have developed some of the hardiest societies on the planet. Quark Expeditions has been the world leader in polar adventures for over two decades and successfully operated many first-ever trips here, including the first Transpolar Bridge across the North Pole, and the first Northeast Passage. All of Quark’s Arctic voyages (excluding the North Pole) include great daily outdoor activities such as Zodiac cruises, hiking and some also offer snowshoeing at the start of the season. Expeditions also include shipboard accommodation, all breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks on board.
