The arctic tours offered by GA Adventures are not for the faint of heart. Described as "perpetual winter, endless wonder," the arctic is a location that requires unwavering commitment and steely dedication to complete. It's not a leisurely week on the beach, that's for sure.

Not only is it extremely cold, the Arctic is also also vast and isolated, an experience that can be both adrenaline-filled and frightening all at the same time. The snow-covered land stretches out endlessly, reminding the participants of how small humans really are in the grand scheme of things.

The tours include the "arctic highlights," which features a visit to Iceland's capital city, a stop in Greenland and a conclusion at Longyearbyen. Another package offers travelers the opportunity to see the Norwegian Fjords, which includes the United Kingdom, Scotland, the Arctic and Norway.
