The Arctic region is a vast, ice-covered ocean, the home of the midnight sun and the polar night. This rugged, powerful landscape has always attracted the adventurous. Where everything is shaped by the climate, an adventure holiday to this unique and sadly changing part of our planet is a unique experience.
For many, visiting the Arctic is centred on experiencing the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights. Whilst the science, caused by the collision of charged particles with atoms in the high atmosphere, may not be clear to everyone the dazzling visual displays of dancing light in the sky leaves even residents spellbound. Whilst we can't recommend exactly when and where the phenomenon will occur, there are special places with little light pollution and the right conditions which significantly increase the chances.
For others it is the wildlife and the polar bears, moose, fox, whales, wolves, caribou and elk that roam the tundra, ice and endless fjords. Choose from either our fully equipped land programmes with expert guides and rangers or enjoy an expedition cruise on board the luxury vessel, Le Boreal, celebrated for having some of the finest guides in the industry on board with you. Both options will allow you to experience the very best of the Arctic.
Abercrombie & Kent's Arctic cruises draw on the best facilities, guides and local knowledge to create the ultimate Arctic expedition, aboard Le Boreal.

Thank you for all your help in making our holiday so superb. Everything worked like clockwork, our hotels were mainly excellent, the guides very good and are various tours were extremely interesting. We loved the extras that you (Debbie Rawnsley) suggested, the street food tour in Hanoi with Mark Leveson, and the cooking course at Mango Mango in Hoi An
