Travel to the Farthest Reaches of the Planet with Quark Expeditions

Quark Expeditions is the Leader in Polar Adventures. Founded in 1991, Quark has been pioneering small-ship, explorer voyages to the Arctic and Antarctica for nearly three decades. Choose from one of seven purpose-built, exploration vessels to sail on with an unparalleled team of expedition specialists, naturalists and guides.

Each itinerary introduces you to unforgettable encounters with wildlife - like coming face to face with half a million penguins, witnessing a Polar Bear bathe in the sun, or gasping in delight as pods of orcas pass by. The style of a Quark Expedition is unique and unpredictable, catering the day to day experience around what mother nature presents. Imagine standing on the observation deck as you sail from Iceland to Greenland, mesmerized by the dancing Northern Lights above your head!

Choose from one of Quark's incredible adventure options to heighten your experience like kayaking, camping, hiking, snowshoeing, photography courses, or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery from the observation lounge or your personal balcony.

This upcoming Antarctica season, Quark Expeditions is introducing a beautiful, new vessel named the World Explorer. This incredible all-suite, all-balcony luxury ship sails to Antarctica in November 2019. Combining the high-end design with the most skilled expedition team and crew in industry, the World Explorer will offer the highest quality experience in the Polar Regions.
