Signature Adventures

Arksen vessels are designed to achieve more than any vessel of their size and to forge new paths where private vessels have not been capable of venturing before. We were inspired to launch Arksen by the stories of some of our greatest Arctic and ocean explorers; Nansen, Cousteau, Hyerdahl and Tilman. Therefore, our signature trips have been designed as a homage to the greats, who between them have changed our perceptions of what is possible.  

The Arksen Signature Adventures are inspired by some of the real-life expeditions, locations, oceans and aspirations of our greatest explorers, their legacy fuels our sense of adventure, our love of the wild and the challenge of the unknown.

Inspired by these adventurers we have created a series of signature trips spanning the globe; from the Arctic to Antarctica, the Pacific to the Atlantic, adventures to encourage the explorer within all of us. While some of the Signature Adventures are thousands of miles long as a whole, it should also be remembered that they all have the ability to be shortened or travelled in stages.
