Win your dream Arctic expedition
The Arctic opens up endless doors to adventures in a mix of iconic and off-the-beaten-path destinations. We’re offering one lucky winner the chance to experience the untamed beauty of the Arctic on a small ship expedition for two worth AUD $55,390*.
You and your lucky plus one could be cruising through iceberg-filled fjords in Greenland, enjoying unforgettable wildlife encounters in the remote Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, or chasing waterfalls and volcanoes on guided walks in postcard-perfect Iceland – the choice is yours!
Your floating hotel and base camp for adventure will be a new state-of-the-art ship – the Greg Mortimer or the Sylvia Earle – designed to carry an average of 132 passengers. Travelling in small groups means that, unlike on larger ships, you can join every excursion, with more opportunities to see iconic wildlife and participate in our comprehensive activity program.
Backed by over 32 years of experience, our world-class expedition team will help you get the most out of your expedition by providing valuable insights into ecosystems, wildlife and cultural heritage on shore landings, and in engaging lectures onboard.
Our expeditions leave a lasting impression. When you disembark from the ship, you will have lifelong memories, a deep appreciation for the wonders of nature, and a richer knowledge and understanding of our planet than you were when you stepped onboard.
