Northwest Passage East to West

Commencing with a monumental cruise along one of Greenland's longest fjords, this voyage of discovery delves into the heart of the Northwest Passage. Sailing out to Davis Strait we cross into the Arctic Circle and head north, stopping along the Sisimiut Coast, where we encounter colourful houses set on the treeless tundra, and meet the friendly locals to share in their culture. In Ilulissat, we marvel at vast icefields and visit the vibrant fishing community there. A hike through the tundra at Karat Fjord provides opportunities for grand vistas and encounters with the local wildlife. Crossing from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic, we will continue our journey as conditions permit, exploring legendary locations swathed in ice and bathed in northern light, among them: Smith Sound, the Beaufort Sea, Prince of Wales Strait, Amundsen Gulf and Melville Island. Lancaster Sound is famous for its beluga whales and other marine mammals. Beechey Island holds the graves of the ill-fated Franklin expedition. Our trip concludes in the Canadian town of Kugluktuk.
