Quark Expeditions has announced its 2016 arctic itineraries with new trips including new fly/cruise, a Greenland spotlight, the Northwest Passage and Across the Arctic Circle from Scotland.


The operator has added three fly/cruise options for time-constrained travellers, as well as several new trips to guide polar travellers in and around Greenland.


They include a 13-day Arctic Express: Greenland's Northern Lights (cruise north, fly south); a ten-day Arctic Express: Greenland's Northern Lights (fly north, fly south); and a 13-day Arctic Express: Greenland's Northern Lights (fly north, cruise south), with prices starting from £4,100 for the ten-day Arctic Express.


New itineraries on the small ship Sea Adventurer include a 13-day voyage to the seldom-visited lands of the Arctic Archipelagos: Spitsbergen and Franz Josef Land voyage, and a culturally-diverse 13-day Greenland to Canada: Inuit, Ice and Wildfire adventure embarking from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland.


The popularity of the Northwest Passage, spurred by the recent discovery of the Franklin Expedition’s lost HMS Erebus ship, has resulted in the addition of another voyage to the region, the 20-day Northwest Passage: Fury and Hecla expedition. This marks the second of the company's voyages to the destination, along with the Northwest Passage: Franklins Legend.


Next year's arctic expeditions are available from £3,500 per person excluding flights, and agents can highlight up to 25% savings per person on selected voyages when clients make a booking by May 1.
