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

Christine at Esplanade Travel planned our recent trip which found us traveling to four very different and fascinating regions in Chile. The trip was absolutely beautiful, memorable and so suited to our specific interests! We have had the pleasure of working multiple times with travel consultants at Esplanade Travel and they continue to amaze us with the itineraries they develop and their close working contacts in other countries that always result in worry-free travel for us. We tend to stay in multiple areas with multiple connections and with the expertise in planning at Esplanade all of our reservations, contacts, pick-ups and drop-offs occur seamlessly. Our travels started in Santiago before heading south to the Lakes District, further south to Torres del Paine in Patagonia, then west to Easter Island. All of the lodges we stayed in were so comfortable with gorgeous views, the guides were super knowledgeable about the cultural and natural history of every location we visited, and the food was fantastic! On Easter Island our native guide, Sabrina, was able to provide us with her intimate knowledge, passed down to her from her ancestors, of the history and culture of the Rapa Nui people. I highly recommend Esplanade Travel to everyone, and I guarantee we will be contacting them to assist us with our next great adventure!
