Northwest Passage & Arctic Canada

A long held dream of nations and daring adventurers, the Northwest Passage is one of the most legendary waterways on the planet. Even today, less than 200 vessels have successfully completed the entire route. Here, EYOS Expeditions has unmatched expertise, and on one recent voyage, our staff’s combined experience accounted for more than 10% of all transits.

With only a narrow window when ice conditions allow transit attempts, you’ll sail through grand fjords surrounded by towering mountain barriers. Taking advantage of the long daylight hours, our sharp-eyed staff will search pack ice for signs narwhales, walrus and the iconic polar bear. You’ll land at rarely visited Inuit communities and understand, first hand, their distinct culture.

Marveling at the icebergs that dot the way, you’ll gain a new respect for those that toiled here in hardship, and stop at historic sites to honor their memory. On vessels with helicopters, you’ll soar over mountain peaks for a hike (or a glass of champagne) amidst awe-inspiring scenery.

For those seeking the ultimate expedition, there is no destination more historic or rewarding than the Northwest Passage.
