Quark Expeditions launched its Arctic 2022 season on May 3 with a seven-day "Spitsbergen Highlights: Expedition in Brief" voyage. 

The much-awaited sailing also marked the inaugural Arctic voyage of Ultramarine, Quark Expeditons' game-changing new ship.

"We're so proud of our recent Arctic season launch for myriad reasons," said Andrew White, president of Quark Expeditions. "Not only is this Ultramarine's inaugural season in the remote Arctic waters, but it also heralds a new way of exploring the Polar Regions—on a ship that's been designed with a pioneering mix of advanced sustainability features that exceed industry standards. In addition to Ultramarine's first Arctic sailing, we're introducing this season a mix of new innovative itineraries and experiences in Greenland and the Canadian Arctic that are exclusive to Quark Expeditions." 

"These include our helicopter-supported Greenland Adventure: Explore by Sea, Land and Air itinerary, as well as Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience."
