In 1991, Lars Wikander and Mike McDowell were two adventurers hankering to visit the North Pole. At the time, it was one of the few places they had never been. Once there, they were awestruck by the beauty and majesty of one of the last unspoiled places on earth.
Since that pioneering North Pole voyage in 1991, we’ve taken thousands of curious travelers to corners of the world that earlier generations could only dream of visiting. Along the way, we’ve achieved an unprecedented series of firsts in polar exploration and have led the way in polar expeditions, making the Arctic and Antarctica accessible to travelers from 50 countries around the world.
Today, we still carry the spirit of the great explorers while sharing our passion for regions whose environmental purity transcends political boundaries and whose beauty defies description. Polar travel is all we do, and we’re passionate about ensuring every one of our passengers has the experience of a lifetime.
