About Secret Atlas

Secret Atlas specializes in small ship cruises (12-48 guests) led by experienced expedition guides who will take you to some of the world’s most remote places including Svalbard, Greenland, Antarctica, and South Georgia. What makes us different? We offer the smallest group size in the industry. Our expedition vessels take just 12-48 guests ensuring a more personal and intimate voyage, a richer guest experience, and a lower impact on the environment, wildlife, and cultures we visit. And untimely, the small group size allows you to spend more time doing what you like doing the most, exploring.

If you have ever dreamed of exploring the polar regions you have come to the right place. Our expeditions take the smallest group sizes in the Arctic and Antarctic.
We are low impact, sustainable and offer our guests an authentic, once-in-a-lifetime experience free from the crowds of larger vessels.

Who are our Arctic cruises aimed at?
Our trips are curated for people that want to explore and be a part of an intimate experience rather than joining an overcrowded commercial cruise.
We think stepping ashore with a handful of others is the perfect way to experience the nature and the environment of the Arctic.
We run Arctic cruises in small, intimate groups to maximise the experience and minimise the environmental impact. 
We are passionate about protecting the places we visit, experiencing them and then leaving again with no trace. 
Our trips are suitable for most people of reasonable fitness. The fitness level varies between trips. If you have any questions regarding this please get in touch and we will be happy to assist you.
Secret Atlas is a member of AECO and we follow strict guidelines so we minimise our impact and don’t disturb wildlife on our Arctic cruises.

Let’s go exploring!

Sustainable Travel


Our commitment to sustainable travel
The team at Secret Atlas is passionate and committed to sustainable travel and preserving the remote regions of our planet. Through our voyages, our goal is to bring people closer to nature whilst raising awareness about climate change and the threats that face the Arctic. 
The Arctic is a vital region of the world, the sea ice reflecting the sun’s rays to help regulate the earth’s temperature and support human and animal life. It’s a hugely important habitat for rare wildlife, including the polar bear, and is home to around 4 million people. But it is under threat from global warming, with sea ice melting and native animals struggling to survive. We should all be concerned about this and should all be taking action to stop this.

Small vessel, small footprint
We believe that people who come here and witness its beauty are more likely to make changes to help protect it. We wanted to find a more sustainable way to help people experience the natural beauty of the Arctic without disturbing the landscape or wildlife which lives there – and that is exactly what we have done. Smaller vessels = a smaller footprint. Our vessels carry just 12 people leading to a much more intimate experience and lower impact way to experience this precious part of the world.
As a member of AECO (Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators), we follow strict guidelines to minimise the impact of our voyages on the environment and wildlife. AECO’s guidelines, aim to: “Ensure that expedition cruises and tourism in the Arctic are carried out with the utmost consideration for the vulnerable, natural environment, local cultures and cultural remains, as well as the challenging safety hazards at sea and on land.” 
What’s more, we carbon offset all of our trips by partnering with Greenland Trees to fund tree planting in Southern Greenland. But we know that sustainability is about more than carbon offsetting. It relates to many factors – environmental and economical. 
We believe that people who come here and witness its beauty are more likely to make changes to help protect it and that is the core of sustainable travel.

The importance of tourism in Svalbard
Tourism is one of three industries in Svalbard (the others being mining and research) and is now the main source of jobs for local people, facilitating the long-term sustainability of Longyearbyen as a settlement. 
Svalbard relies on tourists and we believe it is our duty to ensure that the tourism we’re responsible for in the Arctic is sustainable – low impact travel that connects people with nature and makes a positive contribution to the region and the world.
Income raised from tourism helps fund some of the essential conservation work carried out across the archipelago and plays an important role in raising awareness of the remote region. Our guests take what they’ve learnt and seen back home to share with their communities and inspire action globally to protect this special region.
