Iceberg in the Arctic

Far North & the Arctic

Exploring the Arctic is, in many ways, unimaginable. To travel to what ancient geographers termed ultima Thule (“farthest land”)—and in luxury, no less—is a feat seemingly reserved for the hardiest adventurers among us. And yet, Zegrahm’s Arctic expeditions afford rare opportunities to view Arctic wildlife, seabirds, whales, and polar bears; to meet indigenous peoples who sustain a living at the ends of the Earth; and to explore lands that very few have gone before—it’s the top of the world, waiting for you.
