Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent announces an exclusive charter departure aboard the commanding MV Le Boreal on a rare and epic voyage through the remote Northwest Passage.

The journey takes guests from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic provinces to Alaska and finally the Russian Far East. Along the way visits are made to historic and remote islands, fjords and harbours with on board experts sharing the moving tales of voyages won and lives lost in the name of conquering this mighty trade route between the Atlantic and the Pacific.

Exploring the West Coast of Greenland, guests may meet with local Inuits in their homes or alongside their dog-sled teams, visit a traditional hunting village and learn the traditional art of leather tanning. There are awe-inspiring geological wonders from the “Smoking Hills” of Franklin Bay to the dramatic Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with icebergs. Following in the steps of the world’s greatest polar explorers there are stops along the way that may include Pond Inlet, Lancaster Sound, Beechey Island, Somerset Island and Gjoa Haven. There’s also time spent in the rarely-visited Yukon Territory where whaling once thrived and an abundance of wildlife still exists including migrating bowhead whale, walrus, moose, musk oxen, Arctic fox and 94 species of birds. It’s also one of the only places on earth where grizzly bear, black bear and polar bear can be seen in the same area.

Special Offer:

Guests booking a cabin in Categories 1 – 3 on the 23-day expedition by 31 October 2014 will receive a US $3,000 per person early bird discount.

Tour dates: 20 August – 12 September 2015.

Prices from US $24,995 per person (was $27,995)
