Accommodation in the Arctic

While in the Arctic, your accommodation will usually be an expedition vessel. The ships available offer varying degrees of luxury and have different characters, so you can choose one that is perfectly suited to you. All vessels have been purposefully built or adapted to cope with the icy conditions, offering the highest safety standards, and are staffed by highly qualified guides with a deep knowledge of the region.

You may also spend some time in a lodge or hotel during your trip. These are mostly simple in terms of their facilities, but comfortable, warm and often boasting stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
