Arctic Leanings



Incredible wildlife, legendary routes, ice-filled fjords, culture, and history all feature prominently in Quark Expeditions Arctic 2015 expedition line-up. The leader in Polar adventures will begin its Arctic season May 28, 2015, at the onset of the Arctic summer, on three ice-strengthened small expedition ships.
 
In addition to the five new itineraries, Quark's season will also feature their popular Arctic Svalbard voyages in a variety of lengths, Greenland and Canadian High Arctic, as well as the award-winning Three Arctic Islands itinerary.
 
Aboard the nimble small ship the Sea Adventurer, Quark returns to the fabled Northwest Passage in August. This 18-day voyage visits Thule and Inuit communities of Greenland and the Canadian Arctic. Visit significant landmarks and learn about the rich history of this legendary sea route that has long been a source of mystery for explorers and historians. Seabirds, reindeer, Arctic fox, seals, and large pods of walrus may pop out for viewing along the way.
 
Also look out for the 11-day Iceland Circumnavigation: Ultimate Fire and Ice, which features all the highlights of the island of fire and ice. Departing from the capital city of Reykjavik, the small ship Ocean Nova will explore all the geological diversity of this small island, including volcanoes and lava fields, ice sheets, waterfalls, and geysers. Iceland's people, their unique cultural heritage, and the island's birdlife also feature largely on this itinerary.
 
Beginning in Aberdeen, the Scotland to Norway: Crossing the Arctic Circle journey is a 14-day expedition taking in the Viking trail exploring the northern Atlantic, its ancient history, and archaeology. Experience the culture and lush landscapes of Northern Scotland and Zodiac cruise amongst the classic landscapes of the Norwegian fjords. www.quarkexpeditions.com
