Reasons to Cruise the Northwest Passage
Few voyages capture the imagination quite like the Northwest Passage. Spanning almost 1,700 nautical miles from Canada’s Baffin Island in the east, to Alaska’s Beaufort Sea in the west, traversing this isolated and wild sea route is an adventure like no other.
It’s only possible to sail the Northwest Passage during the brief summer of just a few weeks when the ice conditions become more favourable. Hurtigruten’s nautical expertise in extreme polar waters means we’re one of the few companies to offer crossing attempts.
