12 nights from $10,385 August 12 – 24, 2015 Book before 30 September to receive a $1000 Charter flight rebate / air credit

This iconic voyage Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Cambridge Bay is through the remote Northwest Passage and follows in the footsteps of the early Arctic explorers such as Franklin, Amundsen and Larsen, as you will explore the archipelago of islands and channels that create Canada’s high Arctic region. This is the home of the polar bear, the barren ground grizzly bear, muskox, caribou and walrus and you will journey through the wild Canadian north aboard their celebrated expedition ship, Akademik Ioffe.

Wildlife is the major draw card of our expedition but there is plenty of historical interest and the stories of that ill-fated expedition by Sir John Franklin more than 150 years ago are central to our journey. Franklin made his last heroic foray into the Arctic in 1845 with two ships and 129 men, never to be heard from again. You will visit the last known wintering site of his ships the Erebus and Terror, and other sites along the way where traces of the expedition have been found. For lovers of remote expedition cruising this journey has it all!
