AMBASSADORS FOR THE POLAR REGIONS
Sustainability is at the heart of everything PolarQuest does. We travel in small groups and strive to have minimal impact on the environment. Travelling on a small expedition ship also offers a relaxed atmosphere, greater focus on the destination and more time ashore. During a trip we experience breath-taking nature, glaciers, pack-ice, icebergs and a fascinating wildlife. We observe in awe! But not only the beauty of nature stirs up emotions. Garbage from all parts of the world travel with sea currents and end up along the beaches of Svalbard. It surprises and angers the visitors of the pristine Arctic.
Our aim is that our travellers get a new understanding of the eco system and the challenges the we are facing as our planet is getting warmer. Once back home, we hope that our travellers become worthy ambassadors of the Polar Regions and spread the word of these vulnerable areas. A deeper awareness hopefully leads to a broader interest for nature conservation and inspires to lifestyle changes. After all, it is how we think and act in our everyday responsibilities that have the biggest impact.
