Quark Expeditions

With Quark Expeditions, every day is an adventure. A leader in polar cruising since 1991, the company offers a one-of-a-kind experience to the most remote areas on Earth. Explore the high Arctic and encounter polar bears, walrus, musk oxen and the great whales of the North, or travel to the mysterious and vast continent of Antarctica, a land of glittering ice, majestic peaks and dazzling beauty.

Quark features the largest and most diverse fleet of passenger vessels in the Arctic and Antarctic, each one carrying fewer than 200 passengers. All ships are equipped with Zodiacs, inflatable landing crafts that transfer guests to the shore and back, and feature ice-strengthened hulls for superior navigation in polar waters. 50 Years of Victory, Quark's North Pole ship, is the most powerful icebreaker in the world and is equipped with a helicopter for aerial sightseeing.

You might hear from experts in polar history, marine biology and glaciology while on board, and Quark's expedition team members, with decades of experience in polar travel, ensure a safe and enriching journey.
