Our Arctic Excursions

With two to three landings a day, we help you discover the best of the European Arctic.

Our expeditions explore the Arctic coastline as few see them, threading our way through intriguing channels to hidden lochs and through magnificent fjords to giant glacier fronts. Our fleet of Zodiacs will help unlock the secret wonders of the Arctic's land and seas; once a conquering ground for Vikings and a polar explorer's playground. 

Each of our Arctic destinations are a paradise for walkers and we will make the most of our shore landings, whether it be a stroll along clifftop pathways beneath clouds of seabirds or walking across the sparse tundra dotted in search of wildlife and exquisite wildflowers.

All of our daily shore excursions are included in your expedition cost. Read on to find out more about what you'll get up to on your expedition. 

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!
