Northwest Passage Cruise
Explore the Legendary Northwest Passage
To sail the Northwest Passage — the sea route linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans — is a goal that has fired the imaginations of seafaring explorers and traders for centuries. Courage, skill, perseverance and no small amount of luck were once the prerequisites for anyone attempting to conquer the Northwest Passage, some 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle. It wasn’t until 1909 that it was finally navigated in its entirety. Today, it remains a prized bucket-list voyage for any traveller wishing to follow in the footsteps of history’s most daring explorers, among them Roald Amundsen and Robert McClure. Rich in remote Inuit communities and geological wonders like the “Smoking Hills,” it’s also a region full of rarely seen life. Plying polar waters since 1991, the experts at A&K invite you on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the entirety of this fascinating Arctic world.
