Travel Experience

Getting close to nature and immersed in culture will transform the way you see the world.

Encounter wildlife in pristine natural environments

Listen to the cacophony of tens of thousands of seabirds at their breeding colonies. Watch in amazement at the graceful leaps and twirls of whales. You might even catch a whiff of a particularly fragrant herd of walrus.

Our expert guides take you to where you’re most likely to see abundant and elusive wildlife, while always keeping a respectful and safe distance: whales and seabirds in Atlantic Canada and North Atlantic Europe, and muskox, seals, and polar bears in the High Arctic.

Immerse yourself in local culture and tradition

No matter where you go with us, you'll always travel with local guides who know the place best and can share their cultures with you firsthand. Arts, language, food, local traditions, and music are woven into our educational program onboard, deepening our cultural connections to the places we travel to.

You'll do more than just drink whisky in Scotland, kiss the cod in Newfoundland, or watch throat singing in Nunavut. Our team of experts engage in deep, meaningful conversations and learning with you so that you can best understand the daily life of the regions we visit.

See stunning vistas seldom visited

Our expeditions take you to hard-to-reach destinations that are best explored by small ship. Journey to uninhabited European isles that are difficult or impossible to get to by road, rail, or air.

Explore beautiful and rugged Arctic waterways where Inuit have called home for generations. Or kick up a jig at kitchen parties in remote Atlantic fishing villages. Explore these seldom-seen coastlines and make lifelong memories of the road less travelled.

Experience the joy of being out on the water

Get out onto the water daily in our large fleet of safe and stable Zodiacs. These boats take us where the action is—they can access even the most hard-to-reach fjords, channels, and beaches!

By Zodiac, we search for wildlife, cruise amongst icebergs, explore natural and historic sites, visit welcoming communities, and meander dramatic coastlines. Our goal is to get off the ship as often as possible so that you can experience the environment to the fullest.
