Peregrine is giving modern-day explorers the chance to experience the ultimate Arctic adventure with four new voyages that can be linked together to form a circumnavigation of the Arctic.
The incredible voyages all take place on board the Kapitan Khlebnikov, an icebreaker ship designed to take on the harshness ofnorthern Siberia. It will cruise through the sea, crunch through ice and take to the skies in a Mi-2 helicopter to gain a unique perspective of the region.
Epic Northeast Passage
Cruise along Russia’s northern coast to discover the seldom visited Russian Arctic – some of the least explored, most isolated regions the planet still has to offer. Enjoy landings at small Siberian islands, travel through the stark landscape of Severnaya Zemlya – the world’s last discovered archipelago, make helicopter landings on the World Heritage site of Wrangel Island, and visit remote Franz Joseph Land before finishing the adventure in Longyearbyen.
Departure date: 10 July, 2016
Price: from $41,845 per person
Discover the Greenland few get to see on this voyage into the wilds of the Arctic. Take a journey to Northeast Greenland National Park via Cape Morris Jesup and visit Shannon and Ella Islands, Ittoqqortoormiit, Rodefjord and Danmark Island before ending the voyage in Ottawa. If ice and weather conditions are in favour, this expedition could make polar history by breaking a passage along Greenland’s incredible northern coast.
