The classic and legendary journey that heads up to the High Canadian Arctic, following the route of many famous explorers that searched in vain for the Northwest Passage. During our crossing from Greenland to Alaska we will experience the beauty of fjords and crystal clear glaciers. We will visit small towns and villages to encounter a fascinating mix of local and Danish or Canadian culture and will reach emblematic sites of Franklin’s and Amundsen’s attempts to sail through the Northwest Passage.
We expect to see polar bears, musk oxen, seals, narwhals and walrus, and we hope to see many other species.
Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of this spectacular area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.
