Expedition Sailing Yacht
Perfect for the nature lover and explorer, sailing yachts can access shallow areas that larger vessels cannot. It’s the ideal vessel to get up close to nature in an environmentally friendly way. They offer an intimate experience with just 6-12 guests and are much more comfortable than you would think.
A tall-ship perfctly captures the romance of Arctic travel. Travel in a timeless way through Arctic landscapes, and if the conditions are right, under full sail. They make the perfect subject for photography in amongst the ice. Tall ships are larger than expedition sailing yachts and offer more space on board.
Expedition Motor yacht
Motor yachts offer similar standards to a cruise ship, but instead of 100 + passengers, you will be travelling with just 8 – 20. Motoryachts are often ice-strengthened meaning they can go into the pack ice. Ideal for use as floating photography basecamp to capture that perfect shot.
Talk To An Expert
Planning your first trip to the Arctic can be a daunting task. There are lots of questions to ask such as which vessel and experience are right for me?
We are here to help you make the right decision for you. We will use our expertise to recommend the right trip and vessel for you dependent on your experience and comfort levels.
Who are our trips aimed at?
Our trips are curated for people that want to explore and be a part of an intimate experience rather than joining an overcrowded commercial cruise. We think stepping ashore with a handful of others is the perfect way to experience the nature and the environment of the Arctic.
We run trips in small, intimate groups to maximise the experience and minimise the environmental impact. We are passionate about protecting the places we visit, experiencing them and then leaving again with no trace.
Our trips are suitable for most people of reasonable fitness. The fitness level varies between trips. If you have any questions regarding this please get in touch and we will be happy to assist you.
Secret Atlas was formed to represent the very best in the expedition industry and to make it easier for people interested in visiting remote places to find their perfect trips. At the heart of what we do is protecting the environment of the places we love to visit. We are against mass tourism and work with our customers and suppliers to ensure all our trips are as environmentally friendly and low impact as possible.
