From Green­land to the Ber­ing Sea with Aber­crom­bie & Kent

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Destination Mexico - www.aber­crom­

The North­west Pas­sage is one of the most elu­sive wa­ter­ways in ex­plo­ration his­tory, long fa­bled but only re­cently found. Aber­crom­bie & Kent gave ad­ven­tur­ers a chance to fol­low in the wake of Arc­tic ex­plor­ers with its first pri­vate char­ter in 2015. Its sold-out suc­cess was such that A&K, aboard Po­nant’s Le Boréal, will be re­turn­ing to this le­gendary trade route in 2017, nav­i­gat­ing the west coast of Green­land, the ice­berg-strewn World Her­itage Site of Ilulis­sat Fjord and the wilds of the Yukon Ter­ri­tory. Ac­com­pa­nied by A&K’s Ex­pe­di­tion Team, trav­ellers will meet lo­cal Inu­its, wit­ness the ge­o­log­i­cal sor­cery of the Smok­ing Hills and marvel at the jaw­drop­ping night-time spec­ta­cle of the North­ern Lights. The 24-day ex­pe­di­tion will depart on 21 Au­gust 2017, with sav­ings of up to US$3000 avail­able on book­ings made by 31 Oc­to­ber 2016.
