Northwest Passage: Franklin's Legend

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

Long considered lost forever, the ships of the Franklin Expedition have been the subject of many searches over the years. In September 2014, the Victoria Strait Expedition conducted a large hunt for the two missing vessels, and on 7 September, 2014 the search team found the sunken remains of the HMS Erebus off the coast of King William Island.


Northwest Passage: Fury and Hecla

On this active expedition, we’ll visit some of the main highlights of the fabled Northwest Passage, a sea route long-known to sailors around the world for its formidable channels. Traversing this passage was considered the greatest geographical quest for the last three centuries, tempting renowned explorers such as Roald Amundsen and Sir John Franklin. From landscapes to icescapes to seascapes, we’ll explore some of the region’s most interesting and stunning landmarks.


The Untamed North: Iceland to Greenland

Discover the ethereal beauty of Iceland—element sculpted landscapes, mighty glaciers, and geothermal hotspots—while offshore, rock pinnacles serve as the seasonal home for thousands of nesting seabirds. Meet the citizens of colorful fishing villages; cruise by Zodiac beneath emerald hillsides laced with waterfalls; and walk among ruins that recall the heyday of Viking exploration. In the capital of Reykjavík explore the fabled Golden Circle—Thingvellir National Park; Gullfoss waterfall; and the Geysir Center. Your exploration of Greenland begins in Scoresbysund where, for two days, (weather permitting) search for the wildlife that lives among the glittering icebergs or on the wildflower-carpeted tundra. Sailing southward, explore coves and inlets of the pristine coast by Zodiac and visit millennia-old Norse sites and thriving local villages, including Nuuk, the world’s smallest capital. Prins Christian Sund is a photographer’s heaven with cliff-hugging frozen waterfalls and towering volcanoes. And, as you sail the length of Kangerlussuaq Fjord, witness the breathtaking spectacle of sheer vertical cliffs, massive glaciers, and elegant icebergs.


Greenland to Canada: Inuit, Ice & Wildlife

An exploration of historic Canadian and Greenlandic sites in the Arctic, combined with abundant wildlife and Inuit culture equals one amazing Arctic expedition. This in-depth adventure provides fantastic opportunities for seeing all of the Arctic’s iconic creatures, including polar bears.
