When Do You Want To Go?

Winding your way through the icy channels of the legendary Northwest Passage is history brought to life. On this compelling 17-day journey aboard Quark Expedition's game-changing new vessel Ultramarine, you'll retrace the steps of the intrepid Franklin Expedition, which left the shores of England in 1845 in search of the last unexplored section of the Northwest Passage - only to become permanently icebound. Its discovery more than a century and a half later was a much-celebrated moment in polar history.

Explore colourful Greenlandic villages, and shop for Inuit handicrafts. Hike the endless Arctic backdrop and marvel at the vast, colourful Tundra. Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive and majestic creatures that make their homes in this wilderness, such as whales, walrus, muskoxen and polar bears. Come aboard and follow in the footsteps of Franklin's legendary Arctic voyage, and return home with memories to last a lifetime.
