Who are our Arctic cruises 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 Arctic cruises 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 is a member of AECO and we follow strict guidelines so we minimise our impact and don’t disturb wildlife on our Arctic cruises.
