Enquire About Into the Northwest Passage by Albatros Expeditions

When Do You Want To Go?

This new and unique voyage by Albatros Expeditions combines the dramatic and wild Arctic Canada around Baffin and Ellesmere Island with the colourful settlements along northwest Greenland. Experience the Arctic where explorers of the past searched for a Northwest Passage and through which the Greenlandic explorer Knud Rasmussen travelled on his longest sledge journey.

Your journey begins in West Greenland's Kangerlussuaq, from where we cruise west to the Inuit land of Nunavut on Baffin Island. Inuit have lived on this coast for millennia, and during your voyage to the north, you'll visit several small settlements. It was from here that Inuit migrated to Northwest Greenland 1000 years ago and created the basis for the modern Greenlandic population. The Expedition Team will constantly be on the lookout for polar bears, narwhals and the bowhead whales feeding off Baffin's coasts in September.

From Baffin Island, you'll navigate into Lancaster Sound, the start of the Northwest Passage, and then head back to Greenland. We will visit the admired Knud Rasmussen's trading station in Thule and navigate further down the west coast to Upernavik, Uummannaq and Ilulissat before returning to Kangerlussuaq after an expedition voyage that encompasses the wide range of Arctic nature and its fascinating population.
