The High Arctic

The North Atlantic & Arctic season between May and September enables detailed exploration of the spectacular scenery with its fascinating flora and fauna including Polar bears, Musk oxen, Walruses and a myriad of seabirds. Come with us to explore this unique and wild part of the world.

Summer and winter are both excellent for visiting the Arctic (although summer is a little warmer), each with their unique characteristics - summer in perpetuity of light, and winter with the amazing Aurora Borealis.

Greenland

Greenland has so much to offer our new explorers; from trekking in the southeast, kayaking, and dog sledding, or just cruising and touring along its magnificent coastline. Summer in Greenland enjoys long days and mild weather, winter lights up with aurora borealis shows.

We have new voyages that take you along the West coast of Greenland on comfortable coastal ferries, travelling like the locals. Alternatively, you can experiences the whales and thrills of tall ship sailing through icebergs on board the M/V Rembrandt or the Icelandic schooner Donna Wood.

Our independent tours can show you the contrasts of Greenland: the lush green and the cool blue in the landscape, the thriving & modern towns, next to the tranquillity and peacefulness in the villages. You can experience the ice; in the fjords and at nearby glaciers, and you can enjoy the excellent hiking possibilities and study the exceptional geology of the area. Our tours of Greenland let you experience a modern country in comfort and style; north of the Polar Circle.

If adventure is not your thing, sit back on your hotel patio and see majestic icebergs float in the fjord right outside the town and experience the impressive glacier of Eqi at close range.

Norway

Norway is our specialist region and our passion. Our office in Norway offers 24-hour support as you find yourself away from the crowds on an authentic Norwegian fjord tour, cruising through the Norwegian fjords on board one of the Hurtigruten ships, or traversing the mountain plateaus on foot with vistas only limited by the curving of the earth.

Cliffs plummet more than 1000 metres into the fjords with small mountain farms clinging to the mountainside. Frolic through the back streets of Tromsø¸ at 3 am when the sun is still on your face, or don your skis and go as far as you can see on pristine white snow, and then enjoy a hot chocolate in front of the fire at a mountain hut that appeared out of nowhere.

The Norwegian Coastal Voyages from Bergen to Kirkenes and vice verse is a classic voyage taking you all the way from the Hanseatic town of Bergen along the spectacular Norwegian Coast to the town of Kirkenes on the Russian border. Book your Norway tour today.

Canada

The Canadian Arctic territories offer sparsely populated wilderness and the magnificent Polar Bear. Stretching across thousands of mile of North America’s most extreme hinterland, Canada's Arctic territories—the northernmost portions of the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut—offer sparsely populated and largely untouched landscapes. Roads are rudimentary; most distance travel depends on planes. Except on sea cruises, tourist amenities are few. However, for adventuresome travellers there’s a wealth of opportunities for unparalleled wilderness experiences and chances to experience local traditions.
