If you’re looking for a different type of travel experience in one of the most remote places on Earth, we have four cruises to the Arctic aboard Polar Pioneer tailor made for those with a spirit of adventure. In July and August 2007, the 11-day Circumnavigation of Spitsbergen journeys will venture deep into the domain of the polar bear, while the 14-day Jewels of the Arctic voyages in August and September will explore the hidden realms of Spitsbergen, East Greenland and Iceland.
Each voyage has a kayaking option for up to 12 people. The experience of paddling against the backdrop of polar mountains and glaciers is guaranteed to refresh your soul. Viewing wildlife from a kayak has many advantages, the small group size and quiet presence allows you to get closer to animals while still keeping a comfortable distance from them. Inquisitive seals and walrus often pop up unexpectedly and you may have the opportunity to paddle through brash ice, between ice floes and around towering tabular bergs.
Limited to a group of just 54, each cruise also has a team of experienced naturalists and historians that will guide passengers through the dramatic landscapes, unique culture and abundant wildlife that capture the essence of the High Arctic.
