How we work

We understand the importance of this long anticipated trip and how crucial it is to get it 100% right. As pan-Arctic specialists we can guide you to exactly the right trip by helping you decide on:

  1. Where to go 

    We can show you the best places in the Arctic for seeing wildlife, encountering polar bears, watching the Northern Lights or whatever it is that is leading you north.

  2. When to visit

    Getting the timing right is always crucial. Optimal week for bear sightings in Churchill? Best dates for a Spitsbergen circumnavigation voyage? We know.

  3. How to travel 

    Whether its best to explore by expedition ship, tundra buggy, snowmobile or dog sled will very much depend on where and when you choose to go, and your appetite for adventure.

On our first full day on the tundra we got very close to a mother and her two cubs, and on the second day we got very close to a big male bear. It was a wonderful trip and I would definitely recommend it to everyone. Thanks again for all your help!

We were really lucky with sightings; saw polar bears on four occasions, blue whales twice, lots of fin whales and about 70 beluga whales in an hour on one day, as well as a couple of lovely white arctic foxes and a few walruses.
