Exploring the High Latitudes in 2011
The Arctic summer is magnificent. For a short season the sun makes endless circles above the horizon bringing a unique light and energy that is shared both sides of the Arctic Ocean. High pressure is usually in charge at this time of year creating more stable weather and for a period of three months or so, we are treated to some of the finest shows on earth.
If you have dreamed of sailing amongst collosal ice-bergs, being surrounded by breaching whales or watching a glacier clave another million tonnes of ice into the ocean, you might be interested in joining Polar Bear for one of her Arctic trips. We are not a cruise ship, we have a relaxed timetable and we don't race from one place to the next. It would be criminal to get to an incredible destination like Lofoten, Jan Mayen or Scoresby Sund without having time to climb a peak, paddle to a deserted beach or just sit in the sun and do nothing. This is our philosophy and the basis for all of our trips.
2011 will see us crossing the forgotten waters of the Arctic Ocean between the Norwegian Lofoten Islands, Jan Mayen, Northern Iceland and on to Scoresby Sund in East Greenland. Having spend the past 4 seasons exploring these destinations, we've gained a lot of local knowledge and have plenty of 'hidden gems' to share with you.
