Seven Reasons to Explore the Northwest Passage
1. Claim you Chance to Achieve the Holy Grail of Polar Exploration
Luring explorers for centuries, the Northwest Passage was only just conquered in 1906 by Roald Amundsen. On A&K’s voyage, trace highlights of his route and pay reverence to less fortunate explorers on Beechey Island, a place of safe harbor and peril for Sir John Franklin and his crew.
2. Discover Spectacular Landscapes
From Greenland’s fast-moving, UNESCO-designated Ilussat Icefjord and the iceberg-studded Uummannaq Fjord to the combusting phenomenon of the “Smoking Hills” in the Northwest Territories, feast your eyes on geological wonders found only in the far north.
3. Meet with Remote Inuit Communities
Spend time with the enduring cultures that have long coexisted with the wild passage. Among the highlights are an experience with Ulukhahtok’s rarely visited Inuit, who offer a warm welcome, drum dances and a feast at the shore.
4. Experience Wildlife in its True Domain
In the Arctic, a responsibly piloted expedition ship offers one of the most incredible vantage points from which to see polar bears and their cubs hunting on ice floes. Count belugas, puffins and the rare narwhal among the other remarkable animals you may see.
5. Explore with the Best Arctic Experts
Increase your odds of being in the right place at the right time when you sail with A&K’s deeply experienced Expedition Team, an extraordinary team of real-life explorers ranging from scientists to Polar Medal winners to native Inuit and Canadian Arctic lecturers.
