Is this trip right for you
  • Believe it or not, temperatures in the Arctic can be freezing, but it can also get surprisingly warm when the sun comes out. It’s best to dress in layers when you journey outside. You’ll be provided with waterproof boots that are sturdy and warm. Please see the trip notes for information about what to bring.
  • Polar bears are one of the most incredible animals on the planet, but they are also powerful predators with little fear of humans. Therefore, it’s necessary to know the guidelines surrounding any contact with polar bears. Follow your leader’s instructions and do not stray from your group – your leader carries equipment to protect you. We may need to adjust our plans to visit alternate arctic landing sites.
  • Weather and sea ice play a pivotal part in this adventure, and although there’s an itinerary in place, there are no guarantees that you’ll be able to do everything planned. Flexibility and openness to embracing the unexpected are important in expedition travel, especially in remote areas.
