Out of the Northwest Passage 2016

Greenland, Denmark

An iconic journey, the Northwest Passage remains an adventure today. Leaving Kugluktuk, we head east, traversing James Ross Strait en route to Gjøa Haven where Amundsen honed his polar skills. We sail the Queen Maud Gulf, while stopping daily for hiking and Zodiac cruising. Passing through Bellot Strait, we watch for whales, walrus, polar bear and muskox. At Beechey Island we pay our respects at the Franklin Graves. On Devon Island, we visit the ruins of the Dundas Harbour RCMP and HBC posts, before calling in at Canada’s most northerly community, Aujuittuq (Grise Fiord).

Continuing north into the wilds of Smith Sound we expect ice, ice, and more ice! We trace the routes of famous explorers such as Rasmussen and Peary as we call in at Greenland’s northernmost community of Qaannaq. Sailing south amidst towering icebergs, we’ll witness calving glaciers, explore deep fiords and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ilulissat Ice fjord.

To sail the Northwest Passage is to sail through living history, to sail the haunting landscapes that have enchanted explorers for centuries. In the fierce and untameable wilds lies a stark beauty—the wild, remote reaches of the north have a power that is all their own. Join the ranks of the fearless adventurers who have been lured by the Northwest Passage’s spirit.
