For centuries, fortune-seekers risked their lives to find the Northwest Passage, the fabled sea route between Europe and Asia. It was considered the greatest geographical challenge of the last three centuries, according to the New York Times of November 25, 1852.
During this 20-day active adventure, we’ll cruise through the heart of the Northwest Passage. We will experience first-hand those islands, waterways and wilds - including Beechey Island, made famous by explorers such as Roald Amundsen and Sir John Franklin - that still yield a gratifying sense of achievement for all those who make the voyage.
