A&K’s fourth epic Northwest Passage Expedition
Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has released details of its fourth planned expedition traversing the entire navigable Northwest Passage, making A&K one of the most experienced operators in the region. The journey is on board the exclusively chartered, all-balcony ‘Le Boreal’ and explores the Arctic alongside A&K’s award-winning Expedition Team ensuring a deeply enriching and captivating journey.
Travelling the legendary seas from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic to the Bering Sea and ending in Alaska the journey follows in the footsteps of the world’s most intrepid explorers on a voyage expertly designed to meet the highest standards in luxury, adventure and safety.
Along the way visits are made to historic and remote islands, iceberg-strewn fjords and Inuit villages and relives the moving stories of voyages won and lives lost, all in the name of conquering a trade route between the Atlantic and Pacific.
The expedition explores the west coast of Greenland, with opportunities to meet local Inuits in their homes or alongside their dog-sled teams, visiting a traditional hunting village and learning the art of leather tanning. Geological wonders abound too from the “Smoking Hills” of Franklin Bay to the dramatic Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with icebergs. The route through the Northwest Passage follows in the steps of the great polar explorers with stops along the way that may include Beechy Island, Franklin Camp, Fort Ross and Gjoa Haven. The rarely visited Yukon Territory is another highlight, where whaling once thrived and an abundance of wildlife still reigns supreme and finally the spectacular Northern Lights will be a treat to remember.
The expedition is fully inclusive with included gratuities, unlimited house drinks, on board meals, all Zodiac rides and excursions, expedition gear, port charges, and —newest offerings — complimentary Wi-Fi and Traveller’s Valet laundry service.
