The Arctic is generally described as everything north of the Arctic Circle, a line of latitude at approximately 66° 34′ N. The region spans the Arctic Ocean and eight countries, and despite its harsh climate, over 4 million people call this place home. These settlements, along with the Arctic’s history of Viking conquests and polar explorers, make it a culturally exciting region to visit—not to mention its stunning icescapes and central symbol: the polar bear.

Our team can match you with the perfect Arctic expedition. Svalbard, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, the Bering Sea and the North Pole are ideal for explorations by small ship cruise, and our selected itineraries get you up close to the abundant wildlife.
