Northwest Passage

Northwest Passage

There is a sea passage through the Arctic regions of North America, that has been alluring explorers and fortune seekers for centuries. Connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the Northwest Passage, that has claimed the curiosity, hearts and lives of so many, is now a journey into the past to discover the courage, misery and pure determination of some of history’s greatest explorers. By weaving your way through explorer over-wintering sites, ceremonial grounds, and ship graveyards this remarkable journey will bring to life the endeavors of those who came before us.


But the adventure into history is just the beginning. The present activity is equally as fascinating. For the birders there are over 26 species of sea birds that nest, fish and migrate through the area. But what makes the trip truly memorable is that first encounter with the imperial Polar bear, nature’s most dangerous yet beautiful creature, who wanders the ice floes with her cubs in search of seals. This truly is a remarkable journey as, even today, few ships have the capabilities to successfully complete the North West Passage.
