Camping under the Antarctic sky is now a possibility with Quark Expeditions’ cool new addition to their portfolio of immersive experiences.

“Camping overnight in the Polar Regions has long captured the imaginations of our guests,” said Thomas Lennartz, vp of sales for Quark Expeditions, in a press statement. “We launched our first camping options in Antarctica, where guests could bed down for the night while gazing up at the indigo glow of an Antarctic night. Antarctic Camping has been such a huge success that we’re launching this season a new option for camping enthusiasts in the Arctic: the Greenland Camp Experience along the Tasermiut Fjord in South Greenland.”

Lennartz explained in a press statement that the Greenland Camp Experience adventure option is available to guests who book the brand-new itinerary, Greenland Adventure: Explore by Sea, Land and Air. “Overnight camping in South Greenland is by no means roughing it in the wild,” said Lennartz. “For starters, guests will travel on the technologically-advanced Ultramarine—which is equipped with two twin-engine helicopters and superb onboard amenities—and they’ll have the opportunity to join local Greenlandic hosts at one of the most exclusive camps in Greenland, located along the 70-km Tasermiut Fjord. Comfort and fine food, provided by a local chef, will be part of the camping experience—which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.”

Quark Expeditions’ camping options include Antarctic Camping, where guests are taken ashore by Zodiac to camp out on the snow for the night in Antarctica, and the Greenland Camp Experience: Explore By Sea, Land and Air, offered on the new ship Ultramarine, where they can join local hosts at one of the most exclusive camps in Greenland, along the 70-km long Tasermiut Fjord.

Specializing exclusively in expeditions to Antarctica and the Arctic, Quark Expeditions has been the leading innovator of polar adventure since the company took the first group of consumer travelers to the North Pole in 1991.
