Our team can match you with the perfect Arctic cruise. Svalbard, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, the Bering Sea and the North Pole are ideal for explorations by expedition ships, and our selected itineraries get you up close to the abundant wildlife. Choose a North Pole cruise to be among the few intrepid travelers to reach that far north, circumnavigate Svalbard to seek iconic polar bears, cross the Bering Sea on a true expedition or opt for Arctic Circle cruises that range from the fjords of Norway to the coastlines of Iceland.
