The Arctic Circle is a huge area stretching across the North Pole taking in parts of Russia, Scandinavia, Greenland, Canada and the state of Alaska. This means there is a huge range of cruising itineraries available to tourists, each offering insights into the amazing cultures, landscapes and natural wonders of the north.
Summer is the season to enjoy the wildlife in the Artic with the warmer temperatures causing the ice to retreat allowing access to areas impassable in the winter and with the longest days on planet Earth, there’s always enough light to see the enchanting sights.
The main appeal of a trip to the Arctic is to experience the unspoiled natural world and experienced crews will expertly be able to pick out seal colonies, whales beneath the water and perhaps even the elusive Polar Bear. For the bird lover, there are some incredible colonies as the Arctic is home to half the world’s coastal bird species.
Despite the prolonged darkness in the winter months, cruises have become increasingly popular to view the nature’s incredible light show, the Aurora Borealis more commonly known as the Northern Lights.
There are a great variety of cruises available to the Arctic departing from a variety of ports. The more sedate traveller can enjoy a traditional cruise but for those looking for a physical challenge, voyages incorporating expeditions are available.
