Heading Northwest in 2023? – Cruise Traveller

Heading Northwest in 2023?

Journey through the famed Northwest Passage in the Arctic in 2023 and save 15 per cent – with no single supplement for solo travellers Plus no deposit required until March 2022 

Linking the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the Northwest Passage is only navigable by ships for a few weeks a year after the peak of summer. Many 19th century European explorers tried to traverse the passage as a possible trade route to Asia, often with journeys ending in disaster. Today, the Northwest Passage is accessible by ice-strengthened expedition ships – but the icy waters still retain their mystic charm.

Guests will travel onboard Adventure Canada’s 198-passenger, eco-friendly vessel, the Ocean Endeavour and enjoy daily Zodiac shore visits and excursions which will take them close to wildlife and provide an immersive insight into the traditional Inuit culture—including a visit to Canada’s northernmost communities. During the journey, expedition staff from Adventure Canada will help spot polar bears, walrus, muskox, whales, seals and other wildlife while maintaining passenger safety at all times. There will also be opportunities for hiking, photography, birding and for exploring archaeological sites.

Starting in Canada on either August 15 or August 31, 2023, Cruise Traveller’s exclusive 18-night Northwest Passage package is available from US$17,766 per person, twin-share, or for solo travellers, with no single supplement. This includes a saving of 15 per cent and is subject to availability for bookings. Plus pay no deposit until March 11, 2022.  The offers are available for bookings made by January 31, 2022.

Other highlights of the cruises include crossing the Arctic Circle, cruising along the icebergs at Ilulissat Icefjord in Greenland, visiting the historic remnants of the Franklin Expedition, seeing polar bears, walrus, muskox, seabirds, seals and whales in their natural habitats, and visiting Devon Island which, at over 50,000 square kilometres, is the largest uninhabited island on earth, and home to many geological and natural features.

Adventure Canada is a family-owned, award-winning adventure travel company specialising in expedition-style cruising in some of the world’s most remote destinations – the Canadian Arctic, the fjords of Greenland, the isles of the north Atlantic and beyond.
