Welcome to the Top (and Bottom) of the World!
For many years we have been intrigued by the Northern countries, and have take great delight in offering a portfolio of touring programs to "The Top of the World". Over the past thirty years, we have helped thousands of travellers reach destinations that had dreamed of visiting, and have marveled at the cards and email that we get in return, extolling the scenery, people and natural phenomena of this most distinct region.
The northern lights, the peoples of the Arctic, the cultures thriving through the stubborn will of isolated communities protecting their unique ways of life. All are fascinating for visitors to the Polar Regions, and all combine to make any trip to the north truly memorable.
We are delighted to introduce you to our exciting 2011 collection of adventures to the "Top of the World". You can travel with us to Spitsbergen, Svalbard, the North Pole or the Russian Arctic on one of our many Expedition Cruises. Many of our favorite programs to Alaska, The Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Canadian Arctic are back again this year, and we have also expanded our selection of tours to Greenland, including Iceland in many of our tour programs.
As always, the ships with whom we work are wonderful! From the luxury of the Clelia II to the intimacy of the older expedition-style ships we will find a vessel whose itinerary and style will suite your needs perfectly. On board facilities vary widely, and it is essential that you spend time discussing your needs with our trained counselors to ensure that your expedition cruise is perfect for you.
For those seeking adventure we offer it! Dog sledding tours of Spitsbergen, 4WD tours over the glaciers of Iceland, outdoor adventure in Canada's Yukon territory or white water rafting on the mighty Nahanni River. For those seeking culture, the tour programs to Greenland offer a glimpse into the fascinating lifestyles and communities of the Greenlandic peoples, and our cruises into Canada's arctic will introduce you to the life of the remote Inuit of Nunavut.
And now, for the 2011 season and beyond, we can offer a series of Antarctic tours, including a unique program that incorporate flights between Argentina to the Antarctic continent.
Whatever your polar dreams are, contact our professional counselors for the best advice and assistance in making sure that your dreams come true.
