I was a little late to get back on the bus and the tour guide went out of her way to reprimand me in front of everyone. It was extremely uncomfortable and made for a bitter and awkward trip, probably don’t book through arctic adventure :(

As for many others on this forum and their Facebook page, I am still waiting for refunds for trips cancelled in March. The latest information is that the delay is due to only one person processing the refunds. Given the significant time delays that have occurred (not

Dear Joshy, Thank you for reaching out to us. We understand your frustration and can assure you that our customer care team is providing all the available information to you as well as any other customer. Please rest assured, we have no intention of keeping funds for non-provided services. Unfortunately, the work of our finance department, as well as our company in general, has been highly affected by COVID-19. The spread of the crisis resulted in thousands of cancellations and most of our staff being laid off. Our finance department is operating by 25% of their previous capacity and is struggling with a backlog. Refunds are being issued with a significant delay. At this point, we can only thank you for your patience and ask you to give it a bit more time. For more information we kindly as you to e-mail our Customer Care team at Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.

This was a fantastic tour that I’ll always remember. A 12pm start and small group (about 19 of us I think) meant that we didn’t feel tired with an early start and it ran more efficiently than bigger bus tours I’ve been on in the past. We got just the right amount of time at each

It's unbelievable that there was no heating in the minivan (in February). The driver/guide turned on the air, but it was just a cold draft that made us even colder. After the stop at a waterfall, where the wind was fierce and icy (frostbite weather), we felt throughly chilled,

Had a great time on this tour. Because we visited in November, daylight was at a premium, so the afternoon tour by definition doesn't allow too much time at each stop. Nevertheless, we felt that we more than got our money's worth because our guide was knowledgeable and friendly
