Unlike Antarctica, where most of the voyages depart in the same city, Arctic voyages have various start and end points. Examples of gateway points include Longyearbyen (Svalbard, Norway), Helsinki (Finland), Reykjavik (Iceland), and Ottawa (Canada). We encourage passengers to plan a minimum of two days of travel in case of unexpected airline delays.

Please note that on some Arctic voyages, a mandatory charter flight is required when booking your trip to take the group from the departure city to the embarkation point where you will board the ship.
