Our attempts to cross Northwest Passage are expeditions in the truest sense of the word. We challenge the elements and the ice edge of the Arctic Ocean to circumnavigate these remote and icy waterways—safely, of course. Our deep knowledge of the area, our flexibility, and the multiple alternative routes available are key factors in giving you the most amazing experience possible. If we manage to circumnavigate Baffin Island or sail through the entire Northwest Passage, it will be one for the books.
