Arctic Trips for Any Season

You can travel to the Arctic any time of the year, but there are many seasonal nuances to take into consideration depending on your travel goals and mode of transportation. Arctic expedition ships primarily operate May through September, while Canada’s prime polar bear viewing land-based tours are in the late fall. If you’re seeking to ski or view the Northern Lights, look for a wintertime Arctic trip. Note that the climate data referenced above is for Nuuk, Greenland.
