Arctic Escorted Holidays

Explore the epic wilderness, incredible wildlife and fascinating history of the Arctic in the company of knowledgeable guides on our land-based Arctic holidays. Based at a comfortable safari camp, an experienced team of guides lead day activities to discover this remote region, including hiking, snowmobiling and kayaking.

Explore at an unhurried pace, with plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful Arctic scenery and perhaps come face to face with magnificent wildlife, from beluga whales and narwhals to polar bears and muskox as well as an incredible variety of seabirds. During the summer months, when our escorted trips operate, the sun never sets, only sinking low on the horizon in the evening, casting the warm, soft glow of the midnight sun – a photographer’s delight.

At the heart of all escorted trips is an enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable team of guides. Passionate about this region, they thoroughly enjoy sharing their knowledge with visitors, giving an insight into this unique environment and its wildlife.

To help you really get under the skin of this remarkable destination, formal and informal presentations are given by the expedition team and guest speakers, researchers may be on hand to answer questions and give lectures about their research activity, and local Inuit guides will share their stories and explain the traditional ways of Inuit life.

So whether you choose to snorkel with narwhals, watch polar bears on the hunt or observe belugas in their thousands, a great team of guides can elevate a holiday to a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
