In the Wake of Great Explorers
On this Northwest Passage expedition cruise, we sail in the wake of the great explorers to rediscover the remote beauty of pristine Arctic wilderness. We explore in the tradition of Roald Amundsen, the first man to sail the Northwest Passage.
If the elements allow, we will sail from Cambridge Bay to venture into the archipelago of Nunavut. As we make our way through the icy waters, you will be amazed by the vast expanses of pristine wilderness seen from the deck of MS Fram.
History, Landings and Natural Beauty
We aim to visit several sites with traces of earlier expeditions. We hope to call at some of the world’s northernmost communities, explore legendary inlets and channels, and take you on exciting small boat cruising and landings, and our Expedition Team will take every opportunity to launch kayaks or take you on hikes. Next, we cross the Davis Strait to reach Greenland to discover Inuit settlements and the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Crossing Labrador Sea once more, we head towards Canada to visit colourful villages before the expedition concludes in Halifax.
A True Expedition
Being at the top of the world means sailing among beautiful but challenging ice formations. On this Northwest Passage 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.
