According to Wendy Batchelor (Quark's VP of Marketing), the core of Arctic 2024 program was the incredible range of immersive polar experiences that no one else offered, all guided by their amazing expedition team.
"We've refined our portfolio of off-ship adventure options to match the tastes of every type of traveler. We've also introduced a novel new itinerary in West Greenland, and—based on guest feedback—we're welcoming back favorite voyages to Spitsbergen and the Canadian High Arctic."
Batchelor confirmed that Quark was bringing back and expanding the availability of its "Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience".
"We had an overwhelmingly positive response to our Tundra to Table experience, which was sold out when first introduced this past season. Guests welcomed the opportunity to explore the Inuit cultures of Greenland and the Canadian Arctic through authentic food and storytelling. Having the best expedition team in the Polar Regions enables us to create innovative experiences of this calibre."
Highlights of Quark Expeditions' Arctic 2024 season include:
- New 12-day "Gems of West Greenland: Fjords, Icebergs, and Culture" in-depth exploration along the island's west coast.
- The return of popular itineraries that enable passengers to explore with the most experienced team in the Polar Regions, including "Canada's Remote Arctic: Northwest Passage to Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg Islands" and "Spitsbergen Explorer: Wildlife Capital of the Arctic". Many of these voyages are offered on the new, technologically-advanced ship Ultramarine.
