Itinerary Overview

Leave the fast-paced, modern world behind


For centuries the search for the Northwest Passage lured the most intrepid explorers, but it wasn’t until 1906 that Roald Amundsen finally completed the first sea voyage across the Arctic Archipelago. Aboard the newest member of our fleet, National Geographic Resolution, discover the otherworldly icescapes of the Northwest Passage that so confounded generations of adventurers. Given its high ice rating (Polar Class 5) and its patented X-bow, the ship is able to easily and safely penetrate the ice, allowing you to explore the dramatic coasts of this untouched region–encountering rare wildlife, hardy cultures, and glorious creations of ice and rock at the top of the world.
