Cambridge Bay, 8/17/2022, National Geographic Endurance

A very special day unfolded for guests aboard National Geographic Endurance today as we continued our eastbound transit of the Northwest Passage. Today marks the 117th anniversary to the day of Roald Amundsen’s visit to Cambridge Bay during the first successful transit of the Northwest Passage. It was even more special because it was our first visit to a community in Canada, where we got a view into the life of people who have made this place their home for generations. We were honored to be escorted around the town by local guides and community representatives. We left the bay as the sun broke and couldn’t have felt fuller.
