Overview


An in-depth exploration of the Canadian Arctic and Greenland

For centuries, intrepid explorers were determined to find the Northwest
Passage, the fabled and often fatal route of icy channels connecting Europe
with Asia. None of their stories is as enduring as that of Sir John Franklin
and his crew, who never returned from their fateful 184546 expedition. The
tragic tale has captured the imagination of history lovers ever since. On
this new, 17-day voyage, journey back in time to the height of arctic
exploration. As a modern-day adventurer, navigate the same waters and visit
the same sites that played an important role in the discovery of the sea
routeall from the comfort of your small expedition vessel, of course!
Though Franklins legend will be our focus, spectacular scenery and unique
wildlife abound on this active expedition, which also has you exploring the
deep fjords, ancient glaciers and innumerable icebergs of Greenlands west
coast. Zodiac cruises and hiking excursions bring you closer to the raw
beauty of lands few have set foot on and waters few have sailed.
