European Arctic Expeditions
The High Arctic summer brings a sense of urgency, and the best way to experience its wonders is on an exciting expedition Arctic cruise.
Like the Inuits and Vikings who preceded us, our Arctic trips are explorations by sea. In our small polar cruise ship, we chase the Gulf Stream’s warm currents up Scotland and Norway’s coasts to Spitsbergen, then sail the icy waters to Greenland, Iceland and back again.
A short season of long days, the Arctic summer offers sunsets that linger until dawn, snowmelt feeding waterfalls and glaciers that drop massive icebergs into the sea. Whether calving from Svalbard’s vast glacier fronts or squeezing into Greenland’s deep fjords, mesmerising icebergs of every shape and aqua hue can be seen. From Scottish seaports to Norwegian and Icelandic fishing towns, the adventure base of Longyearbyen to Inuit villages of East Greenland, we enjoy a wide range of history and local culture.
Now with more Arctic cruises to choose from, holidays to the Arctic have never been more exciting. Whether you join us for a single voyage, or link back-to-back Arctic tours for a more in-depth exploration, your Arctic holiday will be a wilderness adventure you’ll never forget!

The expedition staff and their knowledge were fantastic - from the lectures to the daily briefings all the relevant information to make the trip more enjoyable was provided.Lindy Mace - Jewels of the Arctic, 2016
I wanted to see "A" polar bear in its natural habitat, the expedition went beyond my wildest dreams. To see so much wild life and particularly "23" polar bears, I had tears in my eyes just seeing the first one!! The bonus and I still cannot believe it, to see a blue whale.M. Johnston - Spitsbergen Odyssey, 2016
We cannot thank you enough and know well that the experiences our 3 children had with Aurora will change their lives, their understanding of the world and their place in it.Cressida Mort - Across the Arctic Circle, 2015
