Excellent people with excellent narratives of fabulously interesting places... Adding to what would prove to be our best tour ever, the accommodations, food, and logistics were above fabulous.

Quark has been a leader in expedition-style cruising for nearly a quarter century, specializing in the polar regions. You can travel in an icebreaker -- including one that's nuclear-powered and goes to the North Pole -- or in smaller, more mobile ships, all of which hold fewer than 200 passengers.
Quark Expeditions are exactly that -- if you'd like to follow in the wake of some of the great Arctic and Antarctic explorers, this company will provide you the opportunity. Passengers often board Zodiacs to get out on the water or make landings in remote locations.
Here's an example: in December 2014, passengers on Quark's vessel Sea Spirit made a successful landing on Saunders Island, part of the uninhabited South Sandwich Islands in the Antarctic region. It's so difficult to land on the precarious coast of Saunders Island that only 12 touristic attempts have been made in the past 24 years, many unsuccessful.
So if you're ready for true adventure, this is the place.
