The legendary ice-clogged waterways of the Northwest Passage have enthralled explorers ever since John Cabot first attempted the transit in 1497. The combination of ice-capped scenery, wildlife, history and culture all combine to build an Arctic experience like no other. When you cruise the Northwest Passage you have the opportunity to experience polar wildlife as this is one of the few regions where you can see the Arctic ‘Big Five’ on the same trip – although nothing can be guaranteed. This 17 day voyage through the Northwest Passage is one example of the kind of extraordinary polar expeditions we can arrange. Are you ready to explore these icy channels?
