The Nature of Expedition Travel

Expedition travel is characterized by its dynamic, fluid nature and we pride ourselves on our unparalleled adaptability. Zodiacs are used to access the land for shore excursions. During shore excursions, we cater to different activity levels and break into small groups to focus on various areas of interest.

Science in Action

See the effects of climate change up close. Participate in presentations, workshops, and events on the ship and on shore lead by our experts. Dive into varied topics ranging from photography to marine biology to history and gain a deeper understanding by joining our guides out in the field.

Onboard Presentation

Learn from our Leaders

With a 7:1 group to guide ratio, all travellers will have the opportunity to mingle with our animated local experts. We travel with ornithologists, archeologists, historians, geologists, oceanographers, marine mammalogists, and other scientists. Together, we seek to educate and enlighten travellers about our beautiful, fragile world.

Vibrant Communities

We are privileged to work with the people who call the North home—not just on shore, but also aboard. Regional representatives are at the heart of our shipboard staff. Their vibrant culture, language, and local understanding of life and the land are woven into our programming, deepening the connections we form as we go.
