With a heavy heart I want to share the information with you that Quark Expeditions as suspended the entire 2020 season in the Arctic for obvious reason. The regional travel restrictions throughout the High Arctic in Russia, Norway, Greenland, Iceland, and Canada, which have been implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19, will be in place for an indefinite period and may make it impossible for guests to travel. That makes it also impossible to get our ships delivered into our Arctic destinations, not mentioning the impossibilities for supplies and staff to make their way.
Under these circumstances, like most of you, I now have, unexpectedly, time off my ship life for an indefinite period. Of course, I will use the time to finally update and revise this page, but also to track existing projects and start new projects. Exciting projects are in the pipeline and I can’t wait to finally share the news with you. But everything in its time.
Stay curious and healthy.
