Our journeys are tailor-made for you

Arctic Travel Centre is the specialist Arctic arm of Tailor-Made Journeys Pty Ltd (formally South America Travel Centre – since 1995). We have hand-picked a small number of vessels and operators that we know well and trust to provide you with a holiday of a lifetime.
We are a member of AECO (Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators), as well as a member of AFTA (Australian Federation of Travel Agents) and of ATAS (AFTA Travel Accreditation Scheme) who set the benchmark of quality for the travel industry.
It’s our first-hand knowledge that allows us to help you organise your Arctic cruise. We will also look after your pre and post voyage arrangements in Norway, Canada or Russia.
Our goal is to give you professional and independent advice to help you select the right vessel, voyage, operator and travel at the right time to maximise your enjoyment and value from your trip.

We help you select the best voyage, ship, operator and time of the season to get the most enjoyment from your Arctic cruise. We start by asking lots of questions – what is your preferred style of accommodation, size of ship (as this can have a significant impact on your experience), what are your key interests (e.g. wildlife, photography, kayaking, history and cuisine).
Once we have a good understanding of just what you’re looking for, we can begin to create a holiday that is perfect for you. For us, that’s one of the most rewarding parts of working in a specialist travel company; designing unique journeys to suit individual tastes, budgets and desires.
