A cold twist on the bucket list
A newcomer to Luxperience, Quark Expeditions, has our team rethinking bucket list travel and how luxury travellers are changing the way they think about their once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Quark Expeditions is a global leader in polar adventures, and right now they are inviting travellers to boldly rethink their bucket list in Arctic 2025 and choose destinations that take them beyond the standard and overly popular travel experiences.
“Now that global travel is back in a big way, industry watchers have observed that many travellers are heading to the same destinations—in large numbers—and taking the very same selfies,” says Wendy Batchelor, Vice President of Marketing for Quark Expeditions.
Quark Expeditions Arctic season runs from May through to October. The 2025 season includes the addition of 4 fresh itineraries including:
- West Greenland Ice Odyssey: Glaciers and Icebergs
- Ultimate Arctic Voyage: From Svalbard to Jan Mayen to Iceland
- Wild Fjords of South Greenland: Land of the Vikings
- Adventures in Northeast Greenland: Glaciers, Fjords and the Northern Lights
Their curated portfolio allows the luxury traveller to choose from varying trip lengths and off-ship experiences – many supported by Ultramarines’ two twin-engine helicopters. Their efforts to fulfil unique polar dreams aptly speaks to the sophisticated explorer.
“If you want to explore the legendary Northwest Passage, we’ve got you covered. If you dream of flying in a helicopter and then landing on the Greenland Ice Sheet, we can make that happen,” says Batchelor.
We love the sentiment of rethinking our bucket list and we know that luxury to some means getting away from it all. And rightly so!
