Abercrombie & Kent has a couple of cabins now available on its Northwest Passage expedition this August.
The exclusive charter on board the stunning Le Boréal travels the legendary seas from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic to the Bering Sea and ends in Alaska. Along the way visits are made to historic and remote islands, fjords and harbours along the elusive Northwest Passage, taking in moving stories of voyages won and lives lost, all in the name of conquering a trade route between the Atlantic and Pacific.
A&K’s world-class Expedition Team ensures a deeply enriching and captivating journey with opportunities to meet Inuits in their homes, visit traditional hunting grounds and admire the myriad geological wonders from the “Smoking Hills” of Franklin Bay to the dramatic Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with icebergs. The route follows in the steps of the great polar explorers with stops along the way that may include Beechy Island, Franklin Camp, Fort Ross and Gjoa Haven. The rarely visited Yukon Territory is another highlight, where whaling once thrived and an abundance of wildlife still reigns supreme and finally the spectacular Northern Lights will be a treat to remember.
