Northwest Passage with Adventure Canada




Enjoy the splendour of Nunavut, with the Arctic adventure of a lifetime: Into the Northwest Passage, August 6th to 20th, 201
Sea Adventurer (formerly Clipper Adventurer)
Beginning in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, cruise the Sisimuit Coast and Ilulissat Icefiord before crossing Davis Strait to Nunavut.

Visit the culturally rich community of Pond Inlet, vast Devon Island with its concentrations of seabirds and marine mammals, the Franklin Expedition graves at Beechey Island, and Prince Leopold Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary, home to a quarter-million nesting birds.

Taloyoak, Bathurst Inlet, Queen Maud Sound and Coronation Gulf all beckon the adventurer, along the routes of the legendary Arctic explorers. Icebergs, whales, seabirds, polar bears and musk ox are just a few of the marvels to be witnessed.

Journey beneath the midnight sun in a land seldom seen. Travel with actor Lamech Kadloo, author Noah Richler, musician Barney Bentall, documentarian John Houston & marine biologist Ree Brennin (just married!).

Deepen your Arctic experience with botanist Carolyn Mallory and biologist Mark Mallory, naturalist Bill Freedman, filmmaker/glaciologist Greg Coyes, culturalist Lynda Brown, archeologist Lisa Rankin and polar adventurer Chris Dolder.

Join members and supporters of The Walrus Foundation and Nature Conservancy of Canada among a veritable who’s who of modern-day Arctic explorers.

Please join us in our twenty-fifth season, celebrating twenty years of Canada’s newest territory with this remarkable journey through the heart of Nunavut.

We have just released Category 4 and 5 berths aboard the Sea Adventurer for Into the Northwest Passage, August 6 to 20th, 2013.

Happy Nunavut Day!
Twenty years ago today (9 Jul 2013), Parliament passed the Nunavut Act, setting the stage for the creation of Nunavut Territory, which formally came into being April 1, 1999.

Today we congratulate the people of Nunavut as we celebrate this landmark agreement between the Inuit of Nunavut and the Government of Canada.

Having worked in what is now Nunavut since before it became a territory, we value our relationships with the people and the communities of the North.

At Adventure Canada, we’re proud to provide our passengers opportunities to learn about the language, the wildlife, and the landscape of the region.

We’re grateful to work with the Nunavummiut: to learn from their traditions, appreciate their contemporary culture, and to share their hopes for the future.
