Gane and Marshall are agents for Hurtigruten Cruises and Oceanwide Expeditions, centres of excellence for cruises to the Arctic, the Norway fjords, and the Antarctic.
Venture to the furthest corners of the globe, and experience nature at its most wild and remote. Polar cruises will show you the dramatic coastlines of the Arctic, and get you near to the polar wildlife.
We offer a wide selection of fully supported cruise holidays in the region of Svalbard. You can find a small selection of the most popular Arctic cruises for 2015/16 in the menu on the right, or alternatively contact us for a full list of available programmes with travel plans and costs.
Most Arctic cruises start from and end in Longyearbyen, on the island of Spitsbergen, the biggest island in the Svalbard archipelago. Sixty percent of Svalbard is covered by glaciers, and is spectacularly beautiful. Here you can watch icebergs in many different shapes both from the land and on boat excursions in Isfjorden, and of course on the spectacular cruises taking you to more remote corners of the archipelago.
For more information on our Arctic Cruises, please contact us. We can offer competitive rates on all Hurtigruten and Oceanwide cruise programmes, with prices starting from just £695 for a 4-night cruise.
Example itineraries in Arctic Cruises
Sailing along the pack-ice of North Spitsbergen will provide you with wonderful opportunities to spot the King of the Arctic. During this 8 day cruise you will sail to Raudfjord on the north coast of West Spitsbergen, a beautiful fjord dominated by spectacular glaciers and favoured by winged and bearded seal. The cliffs and shoreline of the fjord also support thriving seabird colonies and surprisingly rich vegetation, which flourishes in sheltered spots.
This unique, one-off cruise is intended to give you a chance to help with the process of cleaning the shores and beaches of north Spitsbergen and Nordaustlandet, as part of the ‘Clean Up Svalbard’ initiative.
Experience the incredible scenery in Svalbard’s most remote regions. On this circumnavigation of Spitsbergen you will experience the low-hanging Midnight Sun creating unearthly hues reflected off the sea’s surface, the ice and the glaciers. Roaming in the realm of the polar bear at this time of the year is one of the most exotic Arctic experiences to which you can treat yourself.
Explore the North Norwegian coastline – famed for its spectacular scenery of fjords and mountains – in search of the Humpback Whale and the Aurora Borealis on this 7-night Arctic Winter cruise, operated by Oceanwide Cruises.
