Our Arctic Activities

Increase your level of adventure with one of our optional Arctic activities!

Simply visiting the Arctic and going ashore to be surrounded by wildlife and history is an exciting experience. However, our optional Arctic cruise activities offer added adventure opportunities, some even suitable for even the tamest of souls.  

Photography workshops offer a soft adventure option, whilst kayaking, snorkelling and diving offer more extreme explorations of the European Arctic.

Find out more about our optional Arctic activities below.

I cannot rate Aurora, the staff, the expedition team, the hotel staff and chefs and the crew highly enough. And the ship....love Polar Pioneer in all its non-luxury glory!
