Quark reveals 2022 Arctic deployment

18 voyages to Norway, Greenland, Canada, Russia and more

Quark Expeditions has unveiled a comprehensive Arctic 2022 season that will include its new polar ship, Ultramarine, that provides helicopter-supported adventure options, a unique Greenland Adventure itinerary, plus special itineraries that include the much-anticipated return of the popular Under the Northern Lights expedition, and a voyage dedicated to photography in Spitsbergen.

“We’ve intentionally designed the 18 voyages scheduled for our Arctic 2022 season to enable guests to immerse themselves in the splendid isolation of the remote Arctic where – far removed from the rigours and demands of everyday life – they can simply disconnect and embrace the serene, pristine polar region,” said Andrew White, President of Quark Expeditions. “Each and every one of our diverse voyages offer guests unique experiences that resonate with their specific travel tastes.”

“Guests travelling on our new polar ship Ultramarine – with its two twin-engine helicopters, 20 quick-launching Zodiacs and the most robust portfolio of innovative adventure options in the industry – will experience the Arctic in ways never thought possible,” said White. “Our commitment to innovation is also reflected this season in our Greenland Adventure itinerary, which offers helicopter-supported adventures such as heli-hiking, alpine kayaking on lakes few people have ever visited, and treks on the Greenland Ice Sheet. We’re especially proud of a unique partnership with local organisations that will allow travellers to enjoy such experiences as overnight camping along Tasermiut Fjord in South Greenland where they’ll also forage for their dinner with a local chef.”

Other remote Arctic experiences Quark Expeditions will offer in 2022 include the Northern Lights on a journey to Iceland and Greenland, an array of voyages through Norway’s Svalbard archipelago that range from seven to 14 days in length, and a 14-day photography-focused voyage to Spitsbergen.

Complementing the remote Arctic locations is Quark Expeditions’ fleet of small polar vessels.

“Our ships are ideal for anyone who wants to escape the crowds and totally immerse themselves in the calm and serenity of the Arctic. Our guests will never share the vessel with more than 199 passengers. In fact, some will travel with as few as 128 passengers. And, of course, our enhanced health and safety standards will give guests peace of mind and comfort as they explore the remote polar regions.”
