This unique 14-day voyage invites guests to embrace a true expeditionary spirit. Rather than follow a set itinerary, we’ll allow our search for polar bears and other wildlife to determine our route and shore landings in the pristine Norwegian Arctic. You’ll experience this once-in-a-lifetime journey aboard Quark Expeditions’ game-changing new expedition vessel, Ultramarine—equipped with 20 quick-launching Zodiacs, luxurious onboard amenities, and extensive outer decks, including a wraparound promenade deck. Most cabins have balconies, which means you’ll have access to wildlife viewings wherever they may occur.

Cruising along the coast, ice edge, and inner fjords of Spitsbergen, you’ll be immersed in the natural wonders of the land of the midnight sun as we pursue our quest to photograph arctic wildlife: the polar bear as it prowls the edges of the pack ice on its perpetual hunt for food; the walrus with its long tusks and distinctive whiskers; cliff-dwelling Arctic birds in the thousands; and small herds of reindeer loping across the colorful tundra. Not to mention the landscape itself, with its snow-topped mountains, massive glacier fronts, deep-walled fjords, and vast swaths of untouched tundra waiting to be photographed. Exploring this awe-inspiring region will capture you with its raw beauty.
