In the Wake of Great Explorers
On this Northwest Passage expedition, we sail in the wake of the great explorers like Roald Amundsen, the first man to sail the Northwest Passage. Join us to rediscover these remote and beautiful waterways on board MS Fram.
Starting in easily-accessible Reykjavik, we set sail towards Greenland. We aim to visit colourful Inuit settlements and the UNESCO World Heritage site Ilulissat Icefjord before crossing the Davis Strait and venturing into the Canadian Arctic Archipelago of Nunavut.
Heart of the Passage
We explore the heart and history of the Northwest Passage. Subject to favourable conditions, we will attempt to make our way through the icy waters of Arctic Canada, or Nunavut as it is known in Inuit.
Throughout the journey, enjoy views of vast expanses of pristine wilderness from the deck. We hope to visit several sites with traces of earlier expeditions, and some of the world’s northernmost communities. We will attempt to explore legendary inlets and channels and take you on exciting small boat cruising and landings.
A True Expedition
Being at the top of the world means sailing through challenging ice conditions. On this voyage, like the voyages of the explorers before us, we will go where the ice allows. No matter where we sail or what we will see, we can promise a safe and thrilling expedition.
