ARCTIC SUMMER/AUTUMN 2017

Sea Spirit - New loyalty scheme for returning Sea Spirit passengers

Sea Spirit has proved so popular that passengers have been quick to book another trip on her.

As a result Sea Spirit has introduced a new loyalty programme called High Latitudes. Every voyage brings added savings and benefits which also happen to be transferable, which means that family and friends can also benefit. The new Polar Circle gift card can be used to reduce the price of any future voyage with the ship and take advantage of the attractive benefits which increase with the number of trips taken.

Arctic Norway and Spitsbergen expeditions - Find your inner explorer!

Imagine yourself as an intrepid polar explorer, dog sledging to your mobile tented camp at 76 degrees North back from a long day on the ice.  After an excellent dinner sharing stories with your fellow explorers you repair to your heated tent, soft bed and indoor toilet – things have moved on since Amundsen’s day! 

We’ve some fabulous dog sledging expeditions for small groups or we can tailor make an exclusive private adventure this summer or next winter.  Mid-September to mid-April is a good time for seeing the Northern Lights.
