The Northwest Passage Is Waiting...

Are you a history buff, culture maven, or fastidious birdwatcher? Regardless of your passion, the multi-faceted Northwest Passage is the region for you.

Fabled explorers John Cabot, James Cook, and Roald Amundsen all crossed the Northwest Passage hundreds of years ago, though the latter was the first to successfully cross it after a three-year expedition. Aboard a comfortable expedition ship purpose-built to travel through polar regions (one named after Amundsen, himself, no less), you'll follow in their legendary footsteps with experts at the helm, in the same spirit of exploration and with a deep respect for the nature of this truly remote, difficult-to-traverse passage. 

Highlights of these expedition cruises include crossing the Bering Sea and searching for bowhead and gray whales; passing the scenic Smoking Hills of Cape Bathurst; visiting small Inuit settlements including Ulukhaktok, Gjøa Haven, and Pond Inlet; and much more. 

The Northwest Passage is waiting... what are you waiting for?
