Arctic Vacations

From breathtaking fjords to stunning glaciers, the Arctic is an area of awe-inspiring natural wonders. We offer expedition cruises and escorted tours that explore the Arctic Circle.

Arctic cruises include shipboard accommodations, most meals and shore excursions to tiny settlements and beautiful nature reserves. You might survey the realm of the Vikings in Iceland and Greenland, where geological marvels abound. Or, sail Norwegian fjords, visit the remote waters north of Russia or cruise to the Svalbard archipelago, where you'll find arctic research stations and Ny-Alesund, the starting point for many historic expeditions to the North Pole.

Svalbard is also home to the region's most famous resident -- the majestic polar bear. Along with these beasts, reindeer and arctic foxes traverse Arctic lands, while whales and seals navigate its waters.

Our escorted tours take you to Iceland and to Scandinavian countries like Norway, Sweden and Finland. South of the Arctic Circle, you'll see bustling cities like Oslo and Copenhagen that are rich in history and set amid scenic backgrounds. Then, travel north of the Circle for views of Arctic landscapes and other sights.
