The Arctic’s scenic enormity has long charmed its visitors. Magnificently large glaciers, towering seaside cliffs, and the Aurora Borealis that sways above your head at night all provide a sense of humble insignificance in the vast wilderness that surrounds us. Every habitat in the world hosts a creature that considers it their home. Encounter creatures that range from beluga whales to polar bears, to reindeer and walruses. When it comes to the North Atlantic, the best word to describe it is “enigmatic”.

In this video by our partners at Quark Expeditions, you can get an idea of what it is like to visit earth’s northernmost region. The ability to take in the pure air, emptiness, and tranquillity of such an otherworldly place will send you home feeling refreshed, motivated and privileged. Enjoy these next 30 seconds of inspiration for your next trip to the Arctic!

Get in Touch

Esplanade arranged a wonderful New Zealand adventure for my wife and myself in 2020…just a couple of months prior to Covid shutting down the world! During this difficult time for the planet, the staff from Esplanade continued to reach out to us on how they recommended we deal with our travel plans and the expenditures we had previously committed to. They continuously updated our travel plans and made all the necessary adjustments to our itineraries. Almost three years to the day later, we were able to enjoy our New Zealand trip. The reservations, excursions, and overall recommendations made by Esplanade were fantastic! We commented several times that their commitment to the smallest of details was very apparent. Our flights were perfectly spaced, our drivers all showed up on time, and our accommodations and excursions were beyond expectations. We now plan on trusting Esplanade for our future travels to Africa and Europe. We cannot recommend them more.
