Reasons to Cruise the Northwest Passage
Few voyages capture the imagination like the Northwest Passage. Spanning almost 1,700 nautical miles from Canada’s Baffin Island in the east to Alaska’s Beaufort Sea in the west, this isolated and wild sea route is an adventure like no other.
It’s only possible to sail the Northwest Passage during just a few weeks of the brief summer period, when ice conditions become more favorable. Hurtigruten’s nautical expertise in extreme polar waters makes us one of the few companies to offer Northwest Crossing attempts.
