Polar expeditions beckon
February 2019 374

A trip to the farthest reaches of the Earth will be on the bucket list of all adventure enthusiasts and thrill seekers. Targeting adventure travel enthusiasts, Quark Expeditions provides cruise packages to Greenland, Spitsbergen, Russia, The High Arctic and the North Pole.

Quark Expeditions specialises in expedition cruising to the Arctic and Antarctica, in ships with ice-strengthened hulls or in icebreakers. Polar travellers will enjoy unparalleled technical expertise, leadership and passion for expedition trips to the Arctic and Antarctica.

The polar travel experts have the largest and most diverse fleet of adventure ships in the Antarctic and Arctic. Travellers choose from more departures and a greater variety of itineraries than is available anywhere else.

Within the fleet is the only nuclear-powered icebreaker. Every ship is equipped with Zodiacs – inflatable landing craft – for shore transfers and ocean-level cruising. Their Polar Adventure Ships are platforms for optional sea-kayaking, camping, mountaineering and cross-country skiing. Their small size enables them to sail channels and bays through which our icebreakers cannot sail. The ability to get close to landscapes and wildlife make these vessels extraordinary base camps for photographers.

None of these vessels carry more than 199 travellers, but they do hail from around the world - Europe, Asia, Oceania, North America and Africa.

All share a preference for travel to remote wilderness areas accompanied by Expedition Team members eager to share their knowledge and love for the Arctic and Antarctica.
