The Clipper Adventurer
Earlier this week, I took a look at one of our newest trip offerings, The Atlantic Arts Float. That trip is one of two new cruise-style expeditions aboard the Clipper Adventurer.
Designed for Arctic adventurers and enthusiasts looking for something more low-key than our usual floe-edge base camps, these cruises take full advantage of the connections, experience, and expertise that we’ve been bringing to our more extreme expeditions for over a decade, while allowing for a more slow-paced and luxurious experience.
The Heart of the Arctic Cruise celebrates and explores northern communities’ rich artistic and cultural legacy. From West Greenland’s magnificent Kangerlussuaq Fjord to tiny hamlets along the Hudson straight, our journey will take us to the heart of today’s Arctic, exploring the cultures, art, and history of this magnificent region.
The Arctic landscape is severe, a cold expanse of ice, sea and tundra at the edge of the habitable world. But for millennia, this harsh climate has supported a wide diversity of native cultures, fostering communities that have survived and even prospered.
Today, in spite of the social changes and environmental stresses of the last century, Arctic communities remain vital and resilient, guarding and maintaining the traditions that have sustained their cultures for four thousand years.
This trip and our Atlantic Arts Float Cruise are coming up soon, and the remaining spots are being offered at a special discounted rate! Visit the trips page today to find out more.
