Embark on a journey to the northern polar region and experience an environment that is unlike anything else on earth. The UK’s proximity to the Arctic Circle makes this region very accessible via a cruise or flight. TravelQuest can offer a range of immersive tours that will take you directly to the heart of this icy wonderland.
The northern polar region includes many different countries that are all unique in their own way. Whether it's the whales of Greenland's Disco Bay or the polar bears of Spitsbergen, the Arctic is the perfect place to see some of the world's rarest animals in their natural habitat. There's also some fantastic scenery, so cameras at the ready to capture calving icebergs, giant glaciers, thundering waterfalls and even active volcanoes. And, if you're lucky, the Northern Lights may even make an appearance.
Slightly further afield is the US state of Alaska, which covers a vast area of over one million square kilometres. Despite this, it is only home to a population of 500,000 permanent residents and there are many uninhabited plains, mountains, glaciers and forests – all of which will leave you in awe of this spectacular region.
