Sail Across a Fantastical Frozen World on an Arctic Tour
Located at the very top of the globe, the Arctic Circle is one of the most geographically varied and richly biodiverse regions you’ll ever set eyes on.
An Arctic Tour takes you on a thrilling adventure across frozen wildernesses and over an icy expanse of ocean rich in marine life and crucial to our world’s survival. You’ll cruise past huge icebergs, rocky outcrops shrouded in permafrost, and rugged mountains that tower 10,000 feet above sea level.
Earth’s most northerly region is best visited in the summer months when its frosty landscapes are more hospitable, air temperatures reach highs of 50°F (10°C) and there are almost 24 hours of daylight in which to explore its staggeringly beautiful terrain.
Animal enthusiasts will be in heaven on an Arctic tour. The northerly region is the habitat of some of the most extraordinary creatures, including magnificent polar bears hunting in Spitsbergen’s ice floes and huge walruses lounging around on the beaches of Greenland. You might also spot expertly camouflaged Arctic foxes or witness the elusive narwhal in its natural environment.
While many species are permanent residents in the Arctic, the region is no stranger to seasonal visitors. Various migratory birds flock to Norway’s Svalbard archipelago in the summer, while whale watching is an unmissable activity around Northern Canada’s Baffin Island.
Unlike its polar opposite Antarctica, the Arctic is home to thousands of different communities who have adapted to living in the harsh yet stunning environment over many millennia. On an Arctic Tour, you have the chance to interact with these indigenous people and glimpse their captivating culture and unique way of life.
No fewer than eight countries, including Iceland, Canada, and the American state of Alaska, border the breathtaking Arctic Circle. This gives you multiple places in which to begin your intrepid cruise through one of the world’s most remote destinations.
Stay on board a small ship packed with luxury amenities which you’ll be able to enjoy in between exhilarating daily expeditions outdoors. Explore the ice on foot, kayak in crystal-clear river waters, venture up into the Arctic Cordillera Mountains or trek across tundra vibrant with unusual flora and fauna.
As night falls across the Arctic Circle during the autumn and winter months, you’ll also have a front-row view of the amazingly colorful Aurora Borealis…

This was our second trip with Enchanting Travels. Our first was to Bali. This trip was a driving trip to the Utah National Parks and the Grand Canyon. We trusted Enchanting Travels to set up an itinerary that would enable us time to see all the sites without feeling rushed. The planning they did on short notice was perfect. Our personal trip coordinator did a great job of keeping in contact, answering questions and making reservations. Highlights were a helicopter trip over the Grand Canyon and many hikes into breathtaking areas. Enchanting Travels makes trip planning so easy and the trip itself an unforgettable experience. We highly recommend them.
“My wife and I have been planning a trip through South America and our Travel Consultant, Lisa Fox, has provided nothing but exceptional service and support to create the perfect itinerary for this trip. Bags were nearly packed and we could picture the view from Machu Picchu, but plans have had to change due to travel safety and restrictions from the recent Coronavirus. While this could have been a very stressful time having to reschedule, rebook and who knows how much money could have been lost for what has already been paid for, Enchanting Travels has made it incredibly easy and stress free to reschedule the trip once this passes. We are very appreciative for the pre-trip support, and can already tell that the experience once we are actually on the road will be equally incredibly. Thanks for all your support!“
“Great company, great people!
They helped us put together a complex schedule which included a number of experiences that we could not otherwise get. Also, in light of Covid-19, they were able to reschedule our upcoming Japan trip without additional fees, where many of my friends have scheduled similar trips (same timeframe) on their own, and all were refused a refund or reschedule without significant fees, despite having trip insurance.”
“We have used Enchanting Travels twice for trips. We couldn’t have been happier with the trips planned. Our first trip was a spectacular trip to southern India with driver for three weeks. This year’s trip was to Scotland. Unfortunately with the corona virus pandemic we chose to postpone this trip until 2021. Enchanting travels was very understanding of our concerns and quickly responded by moving our trip with all our desired sights to spring of 2021. Couldn’t ask for anything better from this stellar company with their caring staff.”
“Enchanting Travels is a bespoke experience. From planning my trip, through to the trip itself, everything was thought about. We traveled at a particularly difficult time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were supported with everything, kept up to date with how the situation was developing and how this might affect us. Having WiFi in the car allowed us to communicate with our Trip Coordinator and check with our online government updates. Our stay was luckily not affected, but I felt so supported by the team. Our guides were ready waiting for us, could answer any questions about the sites we were visiting, they communicated with our chauffeur to ensure everything went smoothly. I could not recommend this company more highly. Excellent planning, experience, and execution. Our holiday was truly ENCHANTING!“
“The best thing about Enchanting Travels is the people, from the trip planners to the guides to the drivers. Everyone has been friendly, courteous and professional. The activities and accommodations are planned to fit our wishes, but we still had the flexibility to add or change and activity at short notice.”
“I recently completed a 46-day adventure tour through India that was the best ever thanks to Enchanting Travels. The Enchanting Agent began by interviewing me for an hour and came back with the perfect routing and pacing. The on-the-ground support was second to none. Enchanting says that their trip coordinators are there ‘in case of emergency’ but that does not come near to describing the relationship. My trip coordinator was in constant communication with me to ensure that every leg of the trip went as planned. No detail was too small for her to look after. I was assigned the same driver for 27 days and he was the ‘Best Indian Driver Ever’ because he did more than drive. He curated experiences on the road on those ‘non-planned’ days that I will remember for a lifetime. The value for money was simply remarkable. I don’t think I’ll travel without the help of Enchanting Travels again.”
“Enchanting Travels is very knowledgeable about the areas they coordinate travels for. The consultants and coordinators are very easy to work with to arrange and coordinate what you want to see and do.”
“Enchanting Travels was stellar across the board. From planning to getting there and experiencing Peru, our Enchanting Travels team made it truly enjoyable. The perfect amount of culture, adventure, and relaxation!”
