The far-off Northwest Passage has long caught the attention of intrepid explorers since it was first discovered in the mid-19th Century. The passage was both feared and revered by seafarers who were seeking a ‘short cut’ between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Today the vast ice sheets have melted enough in the late summer months for ice-breaking crafts to make the full 900-mile journey across the top of Canada. Your route and itinerary through the Northwest Passage is flexible as the ship’s captain and Discovery Leader will read the conditions and navigate between islands and icebergs. Each day you’ll be able to join excursions which can include Zodiacs trips, kayak adventures, hikes and cultural experiences. Either during your daily adventures or from the deck of the Scenic Eclipse you may spot wildlife species such as polar bears, beluga whales and walrus. While the ship is sailing, there will be a variety of activities on board that have been curated by the Discovery Team. Alternatively, you can sit out on deck, on your private balcony and watch this seldom-seen part of the world pass you by.
