2023 Arctic Saga


Arrival and Departure Transfers ABERDEEN AIRPORT TRANSFERS Arrival transfers in Aberdeen are not included in the expedition; however, a Polar Travel Adviser or your travel professional can arrange one for you. In order to facilitate your transfers, we request that you provide your flight details to Quark Expeditions® at least 30 days prior to traveling. HELSINKI AIRPORT TRANSFERS Departure transfers in Helsinki are not included in the expedition. The voyage concludes on arrival at the Helsinki airport. If you are flying home right away, you will most likely be able to board a connecting flight on the same day. Please be sure to allow three hours between our charter arrival and your international departure.

DEPARTING FROM HELSINKI Upon arrival in Helsinki, you may connect directly with your onward flight. Scheduled charter flight times will appear in your final documents, and any additional updates will be communicated on board prior to disembarkation. Included Hotel Accommodations Your included accommodation begins on Day 1 of your itinerary, and the specific hotel(s) will be indicated in your final voyage confirmation. As accommodation space is limited, you are encouraged to request any extra nights as early as possible.

Your ship is scheduled to arrive in Longyearbyen between 7am and 8am local time. After breakfast, you will have time to bid farewell to your Expedition Team and shipmates before completing your disembarkation. The process takes about an hour and due to port logistics, may involve one last Zodiac ride to the pier. After disembarkation, you’ll be transferred to the central shopping area in Longyearbyen, and if you’ve chosen to continue your time in Svalbard, you will be dropped off at your hotel. If you’ve purchased the transfer package, your luggage will be transferred to the airport while you enjoy some free time in town. Later you will be transferred to the airport by bus to pick up your luggage and check in for our return charter flight.
