Arctic Circlefrom
AU$ 4999
The position of the Arctic Circle is not fixed. It directly depends on the Earth's axial tilt, which fluctuates within a margin of 2° over a 40,000-year period due to tidal forces from the orbit of the Moon. The Arctic Circle is currently drifting northwards at a speed of about 15 m (49 ft) per year.

Arctic Ocean

The world’s northernmost territory is something awesome to behold. Unlike the South Pole, which lies on a land mass, the North Pole is actually situated in the middle of the Arctic Ocean amidst constantly shifting icefloes, and as such is a destination that only few researchers are privileged to visit. Instead, cruises around the Arctic will take you to breathtakingly beautiful destinations in Iceland, Greenland, Spitsbergen and Norway.

The summer months between July and September are the times to visit since this is when the ice packs recede. This is also the time of year when this extreme weather region enjoys a brief respite from the harsh wintery conditions and the Arctic summer kicks in. A cruise in the Land of the Midnight Sun will be unlike anything you have ever experienced – an endless day lends life an utterly relaxed pace and is very freeing. Combine this with the beautiful remote scenery that you sail past and you have a recipe for a magical and utterly otherworldly holiday.

Snow-covered mountains, bird-covered islands, boiling mud pools, spurting geysers, jaw-dropping glaciers and imposing waterfalls are just some of the sights that await you on a cruise in the Arctic Circle. The Arctic region is also home to a staggering variety of flora and fauna – polar bears, walrus, seals, manatees, musk ox and narwhal are just some of the species you can spot either from the decks of your ice-breaker vessel or whilst on a shore excursion. Whale-watching is another once-in-a-lifetime experience that you must do whilst on a cruise here. Other shore excursions will see you snow shoeing, being pulled along on a sled by husky dogs, hot air ballooning, kayaking, fishing, hiking, and of course taking plenty of photographs all the while. In short – prepare yourself for an exhilarating time!
