THE MOST LEGENDARY SHIPPING ROUTES ON EARTH

Steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, these are by far the rarest travel routes on the planet.

Steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, these are by far the rarest travel routes on the planet.

Northwest Passage
Kangerlussuaq to Nome (Alaska)

Navigate the Northwest Passage’s chilly waters during the brief summer thaw for a voyage that is nothing short of legendary. Make the most of the summer season for some close encounters of the wildlife kind. From polar bear country in Wrangel Island (also the last place where the woolly mammoth roamed) to Franz Josef Land’s estimated 5 million seabirds, this journey is the very definition of deeper travel.

Northeast Passage
Nome (Alaska) to Tromso

With one Northeast Passage crossing already under our belt, we already know we can guarantee you the adventure of a lifetime. Become a part of history and venture where very few have been before you. But do not be fooled by thinking that this voyage is all about the ice; think crystal fjords and glaciers, Inuit villages and a wealth of diverse wildlife sightings.
