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.

We had an absolutely awesome Arctic adventure with Aurora. Loved it!
T. Solomons. Svalbard Odyssey, 2015
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.

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.
