Cruise Overview

Emulate great explorers as we attempt to cross the Northwest Passage

Epic 19-day expedition cruise to sail into the heart of the Northwest Passage, starting from Iceland, via Greenland, to Cambridge Bay.

Follow the route of great explorers, as we navigate the channels of the Northwest Passage, visiting Pond Inlet, Dundas Harbour, Radstock Bay, Fort Ross and Gjoa Haven.

Watch for whales and other wildlife, and discover UNESCO-listed Ilulissat Icefjord and the Inuit settlements of Greenland.

Following an legendary route 

From Reykjavík we cruise to Greenland, taking in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Icefjord. We'll then attempt to navigate the icy channels of the Northwest Passage to Cambridge Bay, like the great explorers before us. We'll explore the famous waterways of Prince Christian Sound, Baffin Bay, and the Davis Strait all the way to Cambridge Bay, before finishing off in Edmonton. 

Extraordinary scenery and wildlife 

A highlight of this cruise is the extraordinary beauty of the landscapes we pass through – and the wildlife they support. You’ll seek out Arctic animals and birdlife in their natural habitat, such as polar bears, musk oxen, caribou, ringed seals and perhaps minke and humpback whales in the seas. And don’t forget to scan the skies above you too for birds such as Glaucous Gulls and Black Guillemots.
