Arctic Holidays

The Arctic Circle encompasses eight countries and a vast wilderness of dramatic mountains, rugged islands and huge ice sheets. Home to an incredible variety of wildlife, the area has drawn naturalists, hardy explorers and those seeking tranquillity for hundreds of years.

There are a number of places to enjoy an Arctic holiday and a number of wonderful ways to do it. Small ship expedition cruising is extremely popular to Norway, Svalbard, Greenland and even the eastern shores of northern Canada.

If cruising is not your thing we can help you with fly-in adventures to the Yukon and Manitoba in Canada or land based adventures in Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland.

    Canadian Arctic
    As remote as it is beautiful, the Canadian Arctic is one of the world’s least discovered frontiers and is home to the infamous Northwest Passage, final resting place of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. An expedition here will take you deep into the Arctic Circle where you will discover some of the most impressive glaciated landscapes our planet has to offer, along with a hugely diverse offering of land and marine wildlife including caribou, arctic fox and polar bears.
    Yukon and Manitoba, Canada
    Breathtaking landscapes and incredible wildlife encounters abound across Northern Canada, an area of almost perfectly preserved natural beauty. The Yukon boasts everything from isolated lodges under the swirling lights of aurora borealis, to unique experiences - including dog sledding, flightseeing and canoeing. This exceptional environment is an outdoor enthusiasts dream. If you were a fan of the BBC’s incredible Frozen Planet series, many of the scenes were shot in Churchill Manitoba, the “Polar Bear Capital of the World”.
    Scandinavia & the Nordics
    From expansive national parks that cover the land to ultra-modern architecture across the region’s stylish cities, Scandinavia and the Nordics offers enough intrigue for the urban explorer and the wildest of landscapes for nature lovers. In the north find the Nordic’s great outdoors, with mesmerising forests, lakes and volcanoes just waiting to be explored. In winter, discover freezing temperatures ideal for dog sledding, Arctic Sea cruising and romantic festive breaks. In the warmer months experience long, bright day’s ideal for walking, cycling and enjoying the picturesque vistas of this stunning landscape.
    Seldom visited by tourists, Greenland’s coastal waters are some of the best in the world for exploring by Zodiac. Get up close to colossal ice sculptures, towering cliffs and immerse yourself in indigenous Inuit culture and a wealth of human history. Greenland also hosts an impressive array of wildlife including muskox, the mighty polar bear and beluga whales. If you’re lucky, you may spot the enchanting narwhal.
    Although the Iceland mainlaind is just south of the Arctic Circle, this fascinating island delivers many of the experiences people hunger for who ventre into teh icy north, from rugged fjords, bubbling hot springs to thundering waterfalls and the chance to see the dancing skies of the Aurora Borealis.
    The silent majesty of this spectacular peninsula lights up under the midnight sun and offers a wealth of natural and historical sites. The region’s wildlife includes the elusive polar bear roaming the ice and the mossy tundra, grazing reindeer, the Arctic fox and vast bird colonies nesting on the rocky outcrops. Out at sea, look out for lounging walrus and spouting whales as you gently glide past colourful icebergs and calving glaciers.
