Despite the harsh climatic condition, the Arctic
is an incredible destination that comes up on
many travelers wish lists. Immaculate
landscapes, abundant wildlife, Inuit tribes and
natural polar experiences give this region an
exceptional appeal. The Arctics close proximity
to Europe and the northern parts of Canada and
the USA make it easily accessible, more than many
other regions of wilderness in the world. It has
much more than spectacular ice, tundra, walruses
and birds - the polar bear is the center of
attraction - travelers who are planning to board
an Arctic cruise will likely experience a rich
natural polar experience. Unlike the white
continent- Antarctica, the Arctic covers the vast
area enclosed within the Arctic Circle, which is
located on the earth at 66.5622 degrees latitude.
This region is inhabited by a wide range of
wildlife including polar bears, the much-admired
"Kings of the Arctic," who roam around the sea
ice and are among the best attractions in Arctic
cruise trips. Other popular species to be
encountered are walruses, seals, whales, musk
oxen, Arctic foxes, reindeer and many more birds.
Inuit tribes also have lived here, especially in
areas such as Russia, Greenland and in far north
or Norway and Canada for centuries. The Arctic
cruises can be enjoyed with great changes in the
season reflecting in length of days/nights of the
Arctic Circle light ranges from 24 hours long
daylight (midnight sun) or darkness at the
Arctic Circle to 6 months of darkness/ daylight
at the North Pole. Fog is also common and
surfaces in much of each Arctic cruises
route. Arctic cruises can be challenging and
offer many amazing options including regions that
many of you have never heard of. From North Pole
tours to Greenland, Norway, Svalbard and more,
there are a great many options to explore the
white north year round. With such a large
selection of the Arctic cruise trips to select
from, it can be difficult to pick up the most
suitable one for you. There are professional
Arctic cruise operators to help you in the
decision making. Lets have a look at some of the
options you can consider for Arctic cruise trips

Greenland Greenland is the biggest island on the
earth hosting a thespian landscape and unique
culture. With the colossal Greenland Ice Sheet
covering as much as 2 miles area at its middle,
life hangs on to the coastline making the island
the perfect destination to explore by a small
ship. Covered by the Northern Icecap, Greenland
offers unbelievable mountaineering opportunities.
Eastern Greenland is usually associated with
Svalbard, whereas Western Greenland is typically
combined with the Canadian High Arctic. West
Greenland is possibly the most ethnically
interesting spot meeting the far-off communities
inhabiting here is truly special. Northern
Norway Tours Northern Norway counts for around
one-third of the Arctic zone as a whole. The
lands show off mountains hiding the unexpected
sight of green farm and grazing lands in the
inner area. The shores are distinguished for
their plentiful fjords that can be spotted in a
wide range of shapes and sizes. The Norway sea
waters are rich in different kinds of seafood and
whales Orcas, Humpbacks, Pilots, Minkes, and
Sperm. Your North Norway cruise trip will be most
remarkable for the Aurora Borealis phenomenon and
a close encounter with Orcas and Humpback
Whales, which survive on the wintering herring
growing in the fjords of Troms. Svalbard
Tours Apart from being surrounded by 3 seas,
Svalbard has special significance for the Arctic
trips due to it being the home of the polar bear.
It is a Norwegian Arctic archipelago located 600
miles towards the south of the North Pole.
Svalbard is the biggest wilderness area in Europe
featuring Rocky Mountains and gently sloping
tundra that creates great opportunities for
snowshoeing and hiking. From wonderful scenery
and wildlife experiences to view the Aurora
Borealis, Svalbard tours may be chosen for
including all these activities. The Arctic
exploration can be enjoyable and especially with
the choice of any of the above-given options. So,
why not start with your favorite one today?
