40% Savings to the Arctic with Quark Expeditions

Explore the stunning regions of the Arctic in 2023 with 40% Savings + a Flight Credit!

The Arctic is waiting to be explored

The rugged, remote Arctic remains one of the most unexplored domains on the planet. This ice-laden region encompasses the Canadian High Arctic; Greenland; the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, which includes Spitsbergen, and at the very top of the planet, of course, the North Pole. It’s inhabited by polar bears, muskoxen, arctic foxes, beluga whales, reindeer, seals, walruses, and migratory birds, among other wildlife species.

Our Exclusive Bonus: $250 Onboard Ship Credit per person, on select departures.

 

The Arctic encompasses several countries and cultures. You can learn about Inuit customs in Nunavut, Canada’s newest territory, or also explore the Indigenous cultures of Greenland. Then there’s the outpost of Longyearbyen in Spitsbergen, the capital of the Svalbard archipelago. Such diversity is part of the appeal of an Arctic expedition.
