Arctic Cruises and Tours

Journey with us northwards on one of our Arctic cruises where you will discover dreamlike landscapes of snow and ice, rugged mountains, dazzling glaciers and the tranquil shores of sheltered fjords and inlets.

This is a region of spectacular wildlife, from huge polar bears measuring up to 11 feet in length, shaggy muskox and impressively tusked walrus, to giant colonies of birds and seals. White beluga whales glide silently through the cold waters, which are also home to humpback and bowhead whales, bearded seals, and the mysterious narwhal.

Our ships are the same sturdy, ice-strengthened polar expedition ships used in Antarctica, and we also offer some exciting land-based expeditions. All our journeys are designed to get you close to the action with daily excursions by Zodiac, kayak or on foot along the shore. Itineraries are flexible and depend on ice and weather conditions and the movements of wildlife. Many of our journeys also include visits to remote Inuit communities and historic and archaeological sites dating back thousands of years.

Our program of Arctic cruises and tours have been carefully chosen to provide spectacular scenery and wildlife opportunities for our clients. Let our experienced Arctic staff tailor make a trip to suit your specific interests and budget.

What Clients Say

“A trip of a lifetime has become a reality for us. This journey was all that we imagined, and more – a wonderful exhilarating experience. Our every need was catered for – during the booking process, at arrival and departure points and during the cruise. The staff of the boat helped to make this trip an experience of a lifetime, one, to never forget. Thank you!”
Chris and Jack Cox, Antarctica, Read More
“The Antarctic trip was absolutely fabulous….All land and sea expeditions were excellent with attention to both safety (native fauna, flora and human) and to finding spectacular scenery in the water and in the icy surrounds! It could hardly have been better photographically. Terrific library and information sessions…”
Robyn Reynolds, Antarctica, Read More
“Natural Focus Safaris took care of all our bookings and transfers and everything went so smoothly. My second trip to Antarctica with Natural Focus Safaris – a once in a lifetime trip….again! An expedition, not a cruise. Killer whales and humpbacks swimming around our zodiacs. Huge colonies of nesting adelie, gentoo and chinstrap penguins with their chicks.”
