The Arctic carries great exploration and historical interest worldwide. The Svalbard archipelago in the Norwegian Arctic, the west coast of Greenland and the Canadian
Arctic and Inuit communities along Baffin Island all the way through the famous Northwest Passage offer incredible insight to life above the Arctic Circle. Encounters with wildlife such as polar bears, whales and seals as well as with northern lights, impressive ice formations and massive glaciers make expedition cruises to the Arctic with One Ocean Expeditions a transformative travel experience. Visiting remote Inuit communities that welcome guests into their way of life, give them perspective and further their appreciation for their customs and lifestyle.
Historical stops along Sir Franklin’s ill fated expedition through the Northwest Passage such as Beechey Island or the last stops of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror are among the highlights of select voyages. The sight of the first polar bear, walrus, narwhal, beluga, caribou or muskox elicits a feeling of awe in even the most experienced traveler.
