Arctic Adventures

Epic by name, astounding by nature, the Arctic Circle is both figuratively and literally about as far off the map as destinations can get. A pristine natural Eden of mighty mountain peaks, awesome galcial structures and pretty much every shade of blue known to man, this winter wonderland is almost too beautiful to be true. Polar bears, whales, reindeer and walruses fot the ice-strewn land and seascapes. while wildflowers bloom on the inland plains, and, come the seasonal equinoxes, Aurora Borealis throws up its dazzling display of lights. Enchanting, stark and utterly removed from human civilisation, the Arctic really is poles apart form the typical travel experience. More about The Arctic

Every style of room has its own king-size bed (or twin if you prefer), plus en-suite bathroom facilities and exterior views, while the Deluxe, Premium, and Owner's Suites each have private balconies - the perfect private viewing area to relax and absorb the epic surronds. The vessel is also equipped with Zodiacs - rubber inflatable boats designed to transfer people to shore, as well as get up close to the wildlife.
