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.
Svalbard (also known as Spitsbergen & Spitzbergen which is the main island's name) forms the northernmost part of Norway and combines as a station for Arctic research, climatology and an adventure holiday destination. Dog sledding, glaciers, boat cruising, Polar bears, the midnight sun and the beautiful northern lights are highlights on your adventure to Svalbard.

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.
The people of Iceland were once some of the most daring seafarers around. They made extended tours in ‘Viking’ long ships across the Atlantic discovering Greenland and Vinland, today know as New Foundland. The country itself is tiny, with a population of mere ⅓ of a million. It offers incredible scenery and unparalleled geological attractions that can bring a whole continent to a standstill.
You can choose a comfortable touring option or you can go trekking, ice climbing, super-jeep riding, fly fishing or jump on the back of an Icelandic horse. Without boundaries on skill levels and experience, our Iceland tours, treks and family adventures give you a powerful experience of the island’s natural beauty and landscapes. Iceland is a popular place to tour so we strongly recommend booking early.
The jewel in the crown when it comes to scenery up north is unquestionably Norway. Find yourself on a cruise 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 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.
