From the soaring shores of Greenland, to the mouth of the Coppermine River, the legendary Northwest Passage is pure inspiration. Even today, few venture in to this remote route through Canada’s Arctic. In the Arctic, nature reigns supreme, and we will go only where the ice and weather conditions permit.
Travelling the shores of the world’s largest island, we’ll marvel at icebergs and fjords and enjoy Greenlandic culture, in the quaint town of Upernavik and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat. Crossing from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic, we will continue our journey as conditions permit, exploring legendary locations swathed in ice and bathed in northern light: Smith Sound, the Beaufort Sea, Prince of Wales Strait, Amundsen Gulf, and Melville Island among them.
