After all, there is no doubt you’ll stick to a resolution that is guaranteed to change your life!

Make this new year one for the record books by finding out what makes trips to the Arctic so unforgettable. Grab your parka and get ready to discover your adventurous side with these 5 Arctic expeditions that are sure to take your breath away.

1. Reach New Heights Flightseeing the Arctic from a Helicopter

Nothing can stop you from exploring one of the hardest to reach places on the planet when you buckle into a helicopter for a bird’s eye view. Hover above some of the most stunning polar landscapes your eyes will ever see, like the Canadian High Arctic or Greenland’s spectacular coast.

Find yourself speechless as you take in views of magnificent fjords and amazing snow-capped icebergs that go up to a kilometer high. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled because the excitement only grows as you scan the icy landscape for majestic Arctic wildlife, such as:

  • Whales
  • Walrus
  • Polar bears
  • Muskoxen, and so much more!

Get your best long distance camera lens ready before takeoff because you won’t want to miss out on capturing any of your amazing Arctic helicopter rides.

2. Go Heli-Landing to Explore UnreachablePlaces of the Arctic

See parts of the Arctic that past explorers could only imagine by Heli-landing to unbelievable and remote locations. A sure way to turn a helicopter ride over the icy Arctic ocean into the experience of a lifetime is when you Heli-land in places that are otherwise inaccessible, like the remarkable Greenland ice sheet, the largest ice cap in the northern hemisphere.

3. Embrace the Elements on a Hike of the Arctic Tundra

Only in the Arctic can you hike as you have never hiked before! Embrace your inner explorer as you hike across the beautiful tundra on trails of the polar regions. Try not to let the sights take your breath away as you explore the Arctic’s tree-less terrain on an unmatched hiking excursion where you are the tallest figure on the frozen landscape!

Leave your idea of a typical trail experience behind as you hike through remote parts of the Arctic. A hiking experience that is sure to ignite your senses as you walk over crunchy snow, sandy beaches, and spongy tundra of the awe-inspiring Arctic.

4. Take a Frozen Leap of Faith with a Polar Plunge

Discover the feeling of raw adrenaline as you sprint down the gangway and plunge into the perpetually frozen Arctic water. A truly extraordinary way to immerse yourself into the incredible Arctic surroundings and all you need is a swimsuit and a fearless attitude.

Find yourself screaming in excitement as your body breaks through the icy ocean surface with a polar plunge that will no doubt fulfill any new year’s resolution to experience the world like never before!
