Embarking on an ultra-luxury Arctic expedition cruise offers travelers an unparalleled blend of adventure, comfort, and discovery, promising an unforgettable journey to one of the world's most remote and captivating destinations.

Here are the Top Ten reasons to experience Seabourn’s Arctic.

Breathtaking Landscapes

Marvel at towering glaciers, rugged coastlines, and pristine fjords, showcasing the raw beauty of the Arctic wilderness.

Unique Wildlife Encounters

Search for iconic Arctic wildlife in their natural habitat, including polar bears, walruses, seals, Arctic foxes, and various species of whales, providing incredible wildlife photography opportunities.

Midnight Sun & Northern Lights

Each moment of exploration lasts a little longer as you bask in the summer midnight sun. In late August and September, you may experience the mesmerizing phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis, painting the night sky with vibrant hues of green, purple, and pink, creating an otherworldly atmosphere.

Remote Exploration

Embark on off-the-beaten-path expeditions led by expert guides, exploring remote Arctic islands, secluded bays, and hidden coves accessible only by your expedition ship where ultra-luxury meets adventure.

Cultural Immersion, Expert-Led Lectures and Conversations

Interact with communities, learning about their rich cultural heritage and traditional lifestyles. Back on board, Seabourn Conversations® bring the history and culture of the Arctic communities to life. Engage in educational lectures and presentations by onboard naturalists, scientists, and historians, deepening your understanding of Arctic ecology, geology, and exploration history.

Expedition Experiences

Inclusive Experiences at every stop, such as curated shore excursions, cultural tours, guided Zodiac® cruises, hikes, and nature walks. Optional, guided Expedition Experiences include state-of-the-art, custom-built 6-guest submarines, providing the option to extend your expedition further for greater ocean exploration. Or paddle through icy fjords to remote islands on guided kayaking expeditions, gazing at glittering glaciers icebergs, and marine wildlife for an exhilarating and immersive Arctic experience.

Polar Plunge

A Signature Seabourn Experience. Brave the icy waters with a polar plunge experience, diving into the Arctic Ocean for a refreshing and adrenaline-pumping thrill, under the supervision of experienced crew members. Afterward, team members help you out of the water and onto the waiting Zodiac. They wrap you in toasty towels and a cozy robe and place a hot drink in your hands.

The Mysterious Beauty of the Svalbard Experience

Svalbard is a remote, vast, and wild place, largely untouched by human presence. Hike across stark, otherworldly landscapes guided by our Expedition team who will share insights on the unique small plants and flowers that thrive in this environment. Admire rock formations and landscapes created by frost and water over time. There is always a chance to encounter arctic foxes, reindeer, and interesting bird species while exploring the tundra. Our plans and itinerary are not set, as we allow the weather, conditions, and wildlife to dictate each day. One thing is for certain, many exciting discoveries that few will ever see await us.

Expedition Details. Luxurious Accommodations

Enjoy your spacious, elegantly appointed suite featuring a pair of SWAROVSKI OPTIK® binoculars and a heated gear wardrobe for expedition gear. Bask in sweeping Arctic views and wildlife in your complimentary parka on your private veranda or via the 4K GSS camera streaming on your in-suite television.
