Witness the piercing, pristine beauty and extraordinary indigenous wildlife of the Arctic, a Polar Region and the northernmost part of Earth.

Occupying approximately a sixth of the Earth’s surface, the Arctic Circle is made up of the North Pole and a number of large islands, including the Svalbard archipelago and Greenland. It also borders Alaska, Northern Canada and Russia, therefore encompassing multiple continents.

As you sail through idyllic, ice-choked northern waters on board one of our featured luxury vessels, you will be privy to monumental glaciers, endless frozen tundras, spectacular peaks and bountiful wildlife, whilst following in the footsteps of explorers and learning about the unique communities that call this remote part of the world home

Why Visit the Arctic?

With its frozen ethereal landscapes, plentiful wildlife and staggering natural beauty, there are countless reasons why you should embark on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition cruise to the great white wonder of the Arctic.

When To Go?

The main window is from around April to September, however the best time to go is during the European summer months, when the sea ice melts enough to let ships pass and navigate the area.

Expedition Cruising

There are many luxury cruise itineraries available, allowing you to visit the farthest reaches of the north. A standard cruise to the Arctic lasts around twelve days, commonly leaving via Oslo. The Svalbard region is on most of the shorter, more concentrated itineraries, but other possibilities might include a longer cruise to Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and Canada.

Our featured, ice-strengthened expedition vessels, Silversea’s Silver Explorer, Silver Cloud Expedition and Scenic’s latest addition, Scenic Eclipse, are the ultimate way to visit the Arctic in unprecedented comfort, safety and style.
