    HIGHLIGHTS

    This expedition cruisesails from Iceland to Greenland’s southern coast before making an attempt to sail to the heart of the Northwest Passage at Cambridge Bay.

    Southern Greenland
    We begin in Reykjavík, Iceland. From here, you’ll sail the Denmark Strait to Prince Christian Sound, a spectacular maze of channels chiseled out of granite rock and filled with ice floes and glaciers. We’ll spend four days exploring southern Greenland’s remarkable fjords and settlements, including the capital, Nuuk, and the stunning UNESCO-listed Ilulissat Icefjord.

    Into the Northwest Passage
    Then our adventure takes us across the Davis Strait, where we begin our attempt to cross the Northwest Passage. Over seven days, we’ll explore the islands that dot this famously challenging sea route, which is only navigable a few weeks of the year. You’ll discover a range of possible sites amid spectacular nature, abundant wildlife, Thule and Inuit settlements, and historic trading posts.

    Our route and landings depend on sea and weather conditions. We also plan to take you small boat (RIB) cruising to more closely admire the ice floes and Arctic wildlife. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will pick spots for escorted landings with the Expedition Team, which may include Pond Inlet, Dundas Harbour, Radstock Bay, Fort Ross, and Gjoa Haven.

    If we’re successful in our transit of the Northwest Passage, our great sea adventure will end in Cambridge Bay, where explorers once sought shelter from the harsh winters. Then you’ll catch a flight to Edmonton before returning home. Should sea ice prevent us from completing our transit of the Northwest Passage, you’ll still have experienced the rugged beauty of the High Arctic and have many opportunities to seek rare wildlife such as polar bears.

    MS Fram (Expedition, 200-guests)

    MS Fram is purpose built as an expedition vessel with a higher ice-class, chart drawing tools, ship depth sounding database, extractable forward sounding sonar, iceberg search lights, autonomous tracking system, oversized oil retention system for self-sufficiency, and a full 'expedition tools-deck' equivalent to a car-deck that holds 25 vehicles. We believe that as an explorer you need an 'expedition base-camp' that is comfortable - something that combines 'all oceans capabilities' with safety, flexibility and environmental friendliness. That's Fram - simply the best expedition ship imaginable.
