Company Description

Some travelers stand at the water's edge, look out into the distance over the expansive ocean and wonder: “How far away is that point on the horizon? How long will it take for me to get there?”

And then there are those of us who, upon gazing at a far-distant vista, ask instead: “But what’s beyond hat point on the horizon? What’s out there that I cannot see? That’s where I really want to go.”

Today, we carry the spirit of the great explorers, we Go Bold, we Go Together and Go for New. Polar travel is Quark Expeditions, and all of us at Quark Expeditions are committed to creating and delivering life-changing experiences for our clients. We draw on our unparalleled polar expertise to profoundly transform people’s sense of themselves — and of the world around them. AND TO ALWAYS, ALWAYS GO BEYOND.
