Northwest Passage - The Ultimate Expedition from Nome to Halifax
Northwest Passage – The Ultimate Expedition from Nome to Halifax
Experience a true adventure through the raw and daunting beauty of the Arctic. Our ship MS Fram is one of the few vessels capable of navigating the passage in premium comfort.
Connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the Northwest Passage is a beautiful and challenging route. On our Hurtigruten voyage, we intend to sail in the wake of great explorers like Roald Amundsen, the first man to navigate the Northwest Passage, and rediscover these pristine waterways.
Starting in Vancouver before your flight to Nome, we head straight for the icy waters of Arctic Canada. You will be amazed by the vast expanses of pristine wilderness seen from the deck. We aim to visit several sites with traces of earlier expeditions, taking the chance to explore Gjoa haven, and to call at some of the world’s northernmost communities. Our expedition team will look for chances to explore legendary inlets and take you on exciting small boat cruises and landings.
Being at the top of the world means sailing in changing ice conditions. On this Northwest Passage expedition, like the voyages of the explorers before us, we will go where the ice allows. No matter where we sail or what we will see, we can promise a safe and thrilling expedition.
Greenland and Canada
Next, we head for Greenland, a true pearl in the Arctic. We will visit Inuit settlements and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ilulissat Icefjord, before crossing the Labrador Sea towards Canada, where our voyage ends in Halifax.
