Quark Expeditions® Adds Exciting New Ways to See the Arctic in 2016

Quark Expeditions®, the world’s leading polar expedition company, has announced its 2016 arctic itineraries with new trips including new fly/cruise, a Greenland spotlight, the Northwest Passage, and Across the Arctic Circle from Scotland. Quark Expeditions® has added three exciting fly/cruise options for time-constrained travellers, and several new trips to guide polar travellers in and around magnificent Greenland.

* 13-day Arctic Express: Greenland’s Northern Lights (Cruise North, Fly South)

* 10-day Arctic Express: Greenland’s Northern Lights (Fly North, Fly South)

* 13-day Arctic Express: Greenland’s Northern Lights (Fly North, Cruise South)

Prices start from £4,100 for the 10-day Arctic Express.

New itineraries aboard the small ship Sea Adventurer include a 13-day voyage to the seldom-visited lands of the Arctic Archipelagos: Spitsbergen and Franz Josef Land voyage, and a culturally-diverse 13-day Greenland to Canada: Inuit, Ice and Wildfire adventure embarking from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland.

The popularity of the Northwest Passage, spurred by the recent discovery of the Franklin Expedition’s lost HMS Erebus ship, has resulted in the addition of another voyage to this fabled region, the in-depth 20-day Northwest Passage: Fury and Hecla expedition. This marks the second Quark voyage to this notable destination, along with the Northwest Passage: Franklins Legend.

The nimble adventure ship Ocean Nova is home base for Greenland fly/cruise passengers, and sees the addition of Scotland to Spitsbergen: Across the Arctic Circle, an expedition of the northern Atlantic offering a taste of Norse and Viking history, the exceptional landscape of the Norwegian Fjords, and plentiful opportunities to view rare birdlife.

“Quark offers polar travellers a wide range of options for experiencing all the Arctic has to offer, including our new destinations. This year, we introduce to the Arctic, our very successful fly/cruise program (currently operated in Antarctica) to make Greenland more accessible than ever. Greenland is an ultimate adventure for modern-day arctic travellers, a fact continuously reinforced by our passengers, and is now considered one of the most “must-see” destinations in the world,” said Quark Expeditions® President, Andrew White.
