Experience the wild, otherworldly landscapes of Greenland and Canada’s Arctic region including icebergs, dramatic fjords and stunning glaciers on a new expedition voyage through the famed Northwest Passage in 2024 offered by Adventure Canada and Australian small ship cruise specialist, Cruise Traveller.
Bookings made by May 31, 2023, will attract savings of more than US$10,000 per couple, a zero solo supplement, free hotel stays and an offer to book now and pay later, with no deposit required until this September.
First traversed in 1903 between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the icy, mystical waters of the Northwest Passage in far north Canada are only navigable by ice-strengthened expedition ships in the warmer months.
Guests on Cruise Traveller’s new 18-night ‘Out of the Northwest Passage’ will travel onboard Adventure Canada’s 198-passenger vessel, the Ocean Endeavour, and enjoy many Zodiac shore visits and excursions which will take them close to wildlife and provide an immersive insight into the traditional Inuit culture—including a visit to Canada’s northernmost community. During the journey, expedition staff from Adventure Canada will help spot polar bears, whales, seals and other wildlife while maintaining passenger safety at all times.
The adventure holiday begins in Vancouver, Canada, during the northern summer on September 11, 2024, with a flight north to the town of Yellowknife for free night’s stay in a hotel followed by a charter flight to Kugluktuk in Arctic Canada where guests will board Ocean Endeavour for a 16-night voyage through the famous Northwest Passage and on to the raw, pristine landscapes of Greenland.
Highlights of the journey include crossing the Arctic Circle, cruising through the icebergs at Greenland’s Ilulissat Icefjord, visiting the historic remnants of the tragic Franklin Expedition in the Northwest Passage, seeing polar bears, walrus, muskox, seabirds, seals and whales in their natural habitats, and visiting Devon Island which, at over 50,000 square kilometres, is the largest uninhabited island on earth, and home to many geological and natural features.
The journey ends in Kangerlussuaq in Greenland where guests will be flown on a special charter flight back to Toronto in Canada for a free, one-night stay, ending the epic trip.
The exclusive 18-night ‘Out of the Northwest Passage’ package is available from US$18,995 per person, twin-share – a 15 per cent saving of US$5105 each – and also for solo travellers with no solo supplement (subject to availability and in selected cabin categories). A free night in Yellowknife pre-cruise and a night-post-cruise in Toronto are also included, with guests able to book now and not pay a deposit until September 22, 2023. Flights from Australia are additional. Fares include shore excursions, connecting charter flights and an expedition parka to keep. Flights from Australia are extra.
The savings, bonuses and book now/pay later offer are valid for bookings made with Cruise Traveller by May 31, 2023. Call 1800 507 777 or visit www.CruiseTraveller.com.au/paylater24 .
