Summer voyages in the Canadian Arctic include the celebrated transit of the Northwest Passage, a 12-night expedition across the top of Canada. The deep fjords and towering peaks of Baffin Island are experienced on several trips during the season, featuring spectacular landscapes that have been likened to Norwegian fjords on an entirely different scale! In addition, the eight-night ‘Finding Franklin’ voyage will appeal to history lovers, while the seven-night Wildlife encounter will be popular with all the family.
Entry level cabins start from US$5195pp, with families benefiting from a 25% price reduction for children and youth. Prices include all onboard accommodation, daily meals/afternoon tea, zodiac and land excursions, a complimentary package of foul weather gear, educational seminars and all port fees and permits. Access to the cruises is via Edmonton and Ottawa, from where OOE provides charter flights to the far north and transfers to its ships. A range of packages and flight incentives is available to meet travellers’ needs and budgets.
So, as the temperatures heat up and the mercury rises, why not take to the Arctic and explore the North?!
