For more than 100 years, ships have been traversing the polar waters at the top of the world via the famed Northwest Passage. What was once simply a trade route has recently become one of the most fascinating adventure destinations in the world, offering spirited travelers once-in-a-lifetime chances to see the rare wildlife that inhabit this region in hands-on ways. You will not only learn about the history of the Northwest Passage and how explorers like John Franklin helped "break the ice", but also do all kinds of fun activities like viewing polar bears up-close, navigating through icebergs, and even visiting remote Inuit villages that have managed to maintain their distinct cultures and way of life. You can choose between research vessels like the Akademik Ioffe or more standard boats like the Ocean Adventurer.
