Additional NotesDue to the nature of adventure travel in the Arctic, this itinerary is subject to change.
As weather is unpredictable in the north, there is a slight chance of the charter or scheduled aircraft being delayed. We strongly urge you to purchase an airline ticket that allows you to change your departure date with minimal penalty. We also recommend that you obtain travel insurance to cover you in case you miss your scheduled flight.
