Travel above the Arctic Circle on an Arctic cruise to see polar bears, whales and icebergs.
With almost 24 hours of sunlight, the home of the polar bears is an extremely fascinating and diverse area to visit when you travel on an Arctic cruise ship. Glaciers are running into the ocean and icebergs are floating in the waters. The tundra is filled with life and polar bears, reindeer and Arctic birds roam through their natural environment. The Canadian Arctic and Inuit communities offer incredible insight to life above the Arctic Circle. Visiting remote Northern communities that welcome us into their way of life, give us perspective and further our appreciation for their customs and lifestyle. By creating voyages that offer a range of opportunities to experience culture, history and wildlife there has never been a better way to immerse yourself in the Arctic.
