Out of the Northwest Passage

The pinnacle of Arctic exploration for the seasoned traveller | 21 Days

This expedition takes you to the heart of one of the world’s last true frontiers, the Northwest Passage. In Canada’s vast northern wilderness, wildlife roams free and the great geological forces shaping our planet reveal themselves. The recent findings of Franklin’s ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror remind us that we sail into history, legend, and myth that continue today.

Nunavut’s communities offer a warm welcome, blending the traditional and the contemporary in unique and compelling ways. Making our way north to Smith Sound, we enter the realm still defined by ice – towering icebergs, vast glaciers, and the last redoubt of the great northern pack. Greenland offers geology, geography, and culture with a European flair.

The earlier August (Into the Northwest Passage) voyage sails from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Kugluktuk, Canada via Pond Inlet, Baffin while this September trip operates in reverse but heads further north to Grisefjord and Smith Sound.
