On board MS BREMEN from Nome to Kangerlussuaq
Expedition Northwest Passage: new routes - a nautical milestone in polar exploration
Add your own chapter to the chronicle of the Northwest Passage, where legendary pioneers once made history. This is a thrilling sea route that only a few ships have conquered – but the BREMEN has already been here seven times. Based on our experience, we will embark on a new, grand adventure for the first time in 2017, following a fresh route that will take us into the realm of polar bears and whales. The journey itself matters more than the destination, and the ice will determine our course.

Hudson Strait (Cape Dorset, Diana Island, Akpatok Island)
In the region around Cape Dorset, settlers from 3,000 years ago left their mark at the beginning of the Hudson Strait. Remnants of the Dorset and Thule peoples have been found here. An atmospheric demonstration of traditional throat singing will provide an exciting cultural experience. On Diana Island, you will be able to experience how the pioneers felt all those years ago. In the middle of the tundra, you will keep a lookout for common ringed plovers, musk oxen and reindeer. Akpatok Island is characterised by a sublime landscape. Go out on a Zodiac ride and marvel at the limestone cliffs. There is a good chance of spotting a polar bear again here, before the BREMEN continues along the Hudson Strait.

Kangerlussuaq/Greenland, arrival 6.00 hrs
* Depending on the flight schedule, it may be necessary to change the destination airport (return flight). Important note on this expedition: For the first time, the BREMEN will tackle a new route through the Northwest Passage, which leads from the Bellot Strait in a southerly direction through the Fury and Hecla Strait into Foxe Basin, and then continues through the Hudson Strait. To ensure the greatest possible safety, the ship management will ultimately decide on the spot which route is possible. If the Fury and Hecla Strait is not passable, the BREMEN will head for the Peel Sound/Prince Regent Inlet and then take an alternative route – just as action-packed – north through the Canadian Arctic up to Lancaster Sound. The captain will decide on the best possible alternative. = at anchor
