arctic circle islands cruise

Quark Expedition, an unforgettable experience of a lifetime


This unforgettable voyage begins in Spitsbergen, the “wildlife capital of the Arctic,” ventures to the spectacular, remote landscape of East Greenland, and terminates its journey in Iceland.

Immerse yourself in the beauty and fragility of a wondrous region, and return with unique memories that will last a lifetime.




Designed to carry travelers in comfort to the most remote corners of the world, the Ocean Adventurer will be your home away from home during this expedition. It has long been a fleet favorite among guests and crew who have appreciated the charm and intimacy of this 128-passenger vessel, its ample outdoor deck space, numerous cozy spots to socialize onboard, and the outdoor jacuzzi.



The comfortable cabins and suites are outfitted with the essential amenities you’ll need to feel comfortable throughout the journey.

Each cabin has a private bathroom with a shower, toilet, and washbasin.



During your journey, you will visit spectacular glacier fronts, steep-walled fjords, and wind-swept tundra, where wildlife sightings include polar bears, walrus, Svalbard reindeer, and thousands of birds. On Greenland’s remote Eastern coast, you’ll explore the remains of ancient Thule settlements, and, keep an eye out for grazing muskoxen!
