SEATTLE — Quark Expeditions’ Arctic 2022 season is now underway, with a seven-day ‘Spitsbergen Highlights: Expedition in Brief’ voyage that departed May 3.
The sailing also marked the inaugural Arctic voyage of Quark Expeditons’ new ship, Ultramarine.
“We’re so proud of our recent Arctic season launch for myriad reasons,” said Andrew White, President, Quark Expeditions. “Not only is this Ultramarine’s inaugural season in the remote Arctic waters, but it also heralds a new way of exploring the Polar Regions — on a ship that’s been designed with a pioneering mix of advanced sustainability features that exceed industry standards. In addition to Ultramarine’s first Arctic sailing, we’re introducing this season a mix of new innovative itineraries and experiences in Greenland and the Canadian Arctic that are exclusive to Quark Expeditions.
The new itineraries include the helicopter-supported ‘Greenland Adventure: Explore by Sea, Land and Air’ itinerary, as well as ‘Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience.’
Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience offers guests a one-of-a-kind adventure into the culinary traditions of the Inuit in Greenland and Nunavut. Passengers who take part in this on-ship Adventure Option enjoy dishes from these Arctic regions prepared by Inuit chefs, and learn about local Inuit culture and culinary traditions.
Quark Expeditions’ Arctic 2022 season features Spitsbergen, Greenland and the Canadian High Arctic, on multiple small polar vessels.
