Arctic Small Ship Cruise Holidays
Our collection of small ship voyages to the incredible Arctic region includes parts of Canada, Greenland and the Svalbard archipelago. Deep fjords, ancient glaciers and rugged mountains make up the landscape, whilst the icy Arctic Ocean is home to a startling wealth of marine life just waiting to be discovered.
The other big draw for most visitors to the Arctic is the chance to see the mighty polar bear in its natural habitat. The largest land predators on earth, polar bears are regularly sighted during voyages.
The largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, Spitsbergen, is the focus of expeditions in this region with its stunning scenery, history and wildlife. As the season progresses, the ice breaks up and full circumnavigation is possible, offering excellent opportunities for spotting polar bear and walrus.
Explore the largely untouched and rugged coastline of Greenland, a land of epic proportions as well as a fascinating indigenous culture. Voyages depart from Iceland, Spitsbergen and Canada. The Arctic waters above Canada offer magnificent wildlife sightings, including the distinctive beluga whale, and an insight into Inuit culture.
Our voyages follow in the footsteps of the early explorers, even venturing all the way through the frozen Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. This epic ice-breaker voyage is a unique experience as the specially-designed vessel crashes through pack ice several meters thick.
