All of our voyages are expeditionary, which means no two voyages are ever the same and there is always an element of the unexpected. Our itineraries will vary due to weather and sea conditions, as well as to take advantage of spontaneous opportunities and impromptu wildlife displays.

Please take the time to read the pre-departure information prior to departing for your voyage. Drop us a line and we can send these to you.

Kayaking

Sea kayaking in the Arctic offers a truly unique perspective of this amazing polar wonderland. Exploring by kayak is an ideal way to surround yourself in the sights and sounds of the Arctic, to paddle among icebergs and brash ice, and to observe wildlife in an unobtrusive manner. Paddlers will have the option to kayak as often as possible during the voyage, weather conditions permitting, as well as have the opportunity to make shore landings
