Polar Cruises in the Arctic

We offer a comprehensive range of small sized ice-strengthened boats which accommodate between 12 -117 passengers providing a personalised Arctic cruise. Our expeditionary voyages are everything that traditional cruising is not, gone are the huge ships docking in tiny ports disgorging thousands of passengers. A polar cruise in Spitsbergen with us will ensure you experience the Arctic like no other.


Daily landings by zodiac allow you to really experience the Arctic. Typically landings include plenty of opportunities to spend time exploring the tundra with walks to suit all abilities.


All landings are accompanied by the expeditionary staff and if time permits they will also offer a variety of lectures, providing a strong educational dimension to the whole experience.

Adventure options

The more adventurous may wish to consider exploring by sea kayak or diving which is offered on select departures along with specialist led voyages such as photographic trips.
