In two days, the four-month countdown to the Arctic adventures of Crystal Serenity’s 2017 Northwest Passage voyage commences.
We’re starting the process now, though, since a venture as epic as this merits those two extra days of anticipation. In truth, that anticipation began almost a year ago, as the first-ever Crystal Northwest Passage sailing embarked in Alaska, filled to capacity with travelers who had been waiting for this quest for months, even years. Last year, 32 days in the Arctic were packed with icy tundra treks, polar bear sightings, zodiac “wet” landings in harbors virtually untouched by travelers, and enriching visits to communities eager to share their distinct traditions with Crystal’s inquisitive guests.
Guests camped overnight at an ice camp in Greenland, helicoptered over massive glaciers, and expanded their minds on board with fascinating insights from expedition leaders and regional experts in wildlife, environment and native peoples.
For those who missed last year’s breathtaking opportunity to follow the previously unpassable route of history’s heartiest pioneers, here’s a glimpse into the remarkable experience. Don’t ignore that inner yearning for new territories and broadened horizons. Book your 2017 Northwest Passage sailing today.
