Two Distinct Ways to Travel
The Arctic is a vast ice-encrusted ocean with a multitude of islands ringing it. The difference in environments requires two distinct ways to explore the region. Our Icebreaker Adventures offer itineraries that take you to areas in the Arctic inaccessible to traditional expedition vessels, with aerial sightseeing by onboard helicopters. If you are an active traveler, then choose our Active Adventures with Zodiac cruising, shore landings and an optional adventure: kayaking.
