Bundle up & don't forget a scarf as you start your expedition to the northernmost part of the world on your navigation of the Northwest Passage. Enjoy the unique & comfortable accommodations aboard the powerhouse icebreakers (like the Ocean Endeavor or Kapitan Khlebnikov) that boldly push through the frigid waters where Sir John Franklin's fated crew was lost. You can also board the research ships Akademik Ioffe & Akademik Sergey Vavilov or the expedition ships Sea Adventurer or National Geographic Explorer for a different take on an Arctic cruise. No matter which boat you choose, you will have exclusive access to one of the most remote corners of the world, where the fascinating wildlife of the untamed wilderness can be seen & the brilliant colors of Aurora Borealis light up the night sky.

All Northwest Passage Articles
As your ship breaks its way through the icy waters at the top of the world, you will feel just like the explorers of yesteryear, as they set forth to connect the two sides of the world via the Northwest Passage. On your cruise don't miss:
  • The flora & fauna of the Arctic, including the great migrations of the beluga & narwhals, kittiwakes & other Arctic birds, seals & polar bears. Snowmobiles offer a great way to see this wildlife.
  • Baffin Island, at the mouth of the Northwest Passage, where you can trek across glaciers and hike the trails at Qikiqtarjuaq.
  • Karrat Fjord, one of Greenland's most impresive fjords, where stone cliffs highlight the landscape & wildlife abounds.
  • Somerset Island, in the depths of the Arctic Circle, is home to caribou, musk ox, and thousands of birds.
  • Beechey Island, where solemn gravemarkers honor Franklin's lost crew of pioneers, and Caswall Tower offers a great lookout for polar bears.
Cruises around the Northwest Passage often include itineraries that visit Norway, Iceland, and Greenland, and even occasionally go as far as Russia
