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.
