Join Denell, CEO of Civilized Adventures, on this exciting itinerary to cruise around the remote islands of the Canadian High Arctic aboard Ultramarine, Quark’s newest ship. Designed to give polar adventurers unprecedented access to the hardest-to-reach places on the planet—and equipped with two onboard twin-engine helicopters for unparalleled access to areas only Quark Expeditions can bring you—this one-of-a-kind ship, in its inaugural year, will take you beyond the familiar in polar exploration. Throughout your journey, your Expedition Team will keep an eye toward immersing you in the best the Arctic has to offer, including reaching Canada’s most northerly islands: Axel Heiberg Island and the rarely visited Ellesmere Island, at the top of the world.
You’ll be able to view the magnificent wildlife that make their home in this forbidding region: sea mammals, polar bears, muskox, and possibly even the elusive arctic wolf. From soaring cliffs to mummified forests, spectacular glacial formations to stunning alpine vistas, expansive waterways to sheltered shores, Canada’s Remote Arctic provides the definitive experience of a mysterious, magical region few ever get to see.
- Follow the footsteps of polar explorers and experience highlights of the Canadian Arctic
- Search for iconic Arctic wildlife such as polar bears and muskox
- Enjoy flightseeing and heli landings with Ultramarine’s two onboard helicopters
- Cruise in a Zodiac to get up close to glaciers, fjords, icebergs and more
- Learn about the environment and wildlife from our onboard polar experts
