Quark Expeditions Arctic Cruise Reviews

After travelling through the Lemaire Channel a night excursion through the 'graveyard' of ice burgs. Finding a whole in the ice was fun

Whale watching on our first day landing on the Antarctic Peninsular

Embarkation from Resolute Bay was a bit of a melee as our Arctic clothing, needed to wear between the airport and the KK Icebreaker, was delivered to the airport in bulk packages. Passengers had to remember what sizes of jackets / boots they requested and join a free-for-all to try to retrieve the same. Not everyone got what they ordered.
