Amazing Experiences

Quark Expeditions has the most robust portfolio of adventure options in polar expedition sailings. Off-ship activities include Zodiac® cruising, mountain biking and many more.

Zodiac® Cruising
Rugged, reinforced rubber skiffs whisk you safely from the ship to remote shorelines and back, taking you into shallow waters the ship can’t reach. Touring around by Zodiac® while looking out for wildlife is an intimate and relaxing way to see icy bays and inlets.

Hiking
Each shore landing is an excellent opportunity to explore the terrain on foot. Supervised by expedition staff, there are different groups based on hiking ability and area of interest, giving every traveler the unique opportunity to enjoy a satisfying hour or two of exploration.

Polar Plunge
As madcap as it looks, this activity has become a polar right of passage. Participants willingly jump into bone-chilling ocean waters, making for priceless photo ops. Feeling brave? Dare yourself to take the plunge.

Flightseeing & Helicopter
Enjoy a bird’s eye view of icebergs, glaciers, snow-capped peaks, wildlife, expansive waterways and fjords. Seeing it all from the comfortable seat of a helicopter provides an incredible perspective of the polar landscape, letting you appreciate the breadth of this magnificent wilderness.

Greenland Camping
Join local hosts at Tasermiut Camp for a night at one of the most exclusive camps in Greenland. Enjoy an intimate small-group walk through the beautiful Greenlandic landscapes with a local chef who will identify fresh ingredients, after which you and your fellow guests will prepare a meal together.

Watersports
Kayaking, paddling, paddleboarding… These are just a few of the guided adventures you can choose from during your polar expedition. Kayak along the rugged coastlines and through the calm bays, paddle – or paddleboard – through tranquil surroundings.
