They’re easily recognizable by their whiskers and large tusks, but there’s way more to the sociable walrus than just those distinctive features!
Climate change continues to reshape the Arctic, and with it, the habitats of its wildlife. This year on International Polar Bear Day, you'll have a variety of ways to show your support for our furry friends in the Far North.
Properly packing for the Polar Regions makes your adventure that much more enjoyable! We like our passengers to be prepared for any conditions they may encounter, whether cross-country skiing in Antarctica or touching down in a helicopter at the North Pole.
There’s nothing quite like climbing into a kayak and paddling the pristine waters around towering icebergs off the coast of Antarctica, or along the shore of a quaint Greenland fishing village. In fact, Greenland is the birthplace of the kayak and many of Quark's Arctic passengers are treated to a traditional kayaking demonstration in Sisimiut, on the Davis Strait.
Kayaking is an immensely popular Antarctic adventure for Quark passengers. We provide the equipment and training you'll need for a day on the water enjoying views of the landscape from your unique vantage point just atop the surface of clear waters in the extreme North or South.
Antarctica is the most remote of the world’s seven continents, but that doesn’t mean its native inhabitants go without companionship. While wildlife are unlike humans and forgo a marriage or commitment ceremony, you may be surprised to learn on your Antarctic expedition that some animals do in fact stay together for the long haul!
