Luxury Expeditions in the Arctic
These expedition ships combine state-of-the-art facilities with elegant interiors so you can explore the earth’s final frontier in style. Many also have huge windows so you can admire the Arctic’s beautiful landscapes without leaving your cabin.
Ships that venture into the Arctic tend to be small - your average ship will carry between 50 – 200 people – which makes your trip even more special. You’ll be able to explore the Arctic in smaller groups and take advantage of the ship’s resident expert. Many ships will also allow passengers onto the bridge to watch the ship weave through the ice or try and spy wildlife.
