Canada Circumnavigation – Summer 2018

Dec 1, 2018 | News

Travel by train, boat and plane around this spectacular and diverse country

Starting and ending in Nova Scotia, this adventure on Akademik Ioffe will be truly a once in a lifetime voyage – an entire circumnavigation of Canada in a single expedition!

Setting off from Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, the voyage element joins together the ship’s other summer itineraries including Labrador & Torngat Mountains, Baffin Island and Lancaster Sound, exploration of the High Arctic, Pathways to Franklin, and the iconic Northwest Passage.

Disembarking from the Akadmik Ioffe on arrival in Cambridge Bay, Victoria Island, your adventure continues with a flight from the Arctic heading back into Southern Canada. After exploring British Columbia’s remarkable seaport city of Vancouver, you board the train for a ‘Prestige Class’ rail journey from west to east with spectacular views of the Canadian Rockies.  Your three night stay in Banff and Jasper National Park affords the chance to hike and explore the mountains before continuing on eastwards following the lakes of Northern Ontario to experience the bustling hubs of Toronto and Montreal.

With extended stops at world-class iconic Fairmont hotels along the way, your journey ends at Halifax, back in the embarkation province of Nova Scotia – a massive 56 nights and 57 days after beginning your journey.

There’s undoubtedly never been a trip like this offered before.  Email Fiona for full details on
