Seabourn has announced an exciting line-up of adventurou­s voyages for the summer of 2023 on its two new purpose-built expedition ships, Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit. The program includes the line’s first-ever voyages to the Northeast and Northwest Passages in the Arctic, where guests will discover two of the world’s most remote and fascinatin­g regions filled with an abundance of history, wildlife and unique landscapes, tracing the footsteps of great explorers. Seabourn Venture will depart July 29, 2023, for a 26-day journey across the Northeast Passage from Tromsø, Norway to Nome, Alaska. Her sister ship, Seabourn Pursuit, will depart on a 23-day adventure to the famous Northwest Passage from Kangerluss­uaq, Greenland to Nome, departing August, 2023. This expedition includes pre- and post-voyage charter flights and hotel stays in Reykjavik, Iceland, and Anchorage. “Our Northeast Passage and Northwest Passage are truly epic itinerarie­s that are perfect for travellers who want to explore regions less travelled, and take in the landscapes, nature and wildlife they never thought they would ever see,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. Highlights of the Seabourn Venture itinerary include visiting Storstappe­n Island, a hotspot for hundreds of thousands of breeding seabirds, and Wrangel Island, Russia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located well above the Arctic Circle that is often referred to as a polar bear ‘nursery’. On Seabourn Pursuit the ship will visit many destinatio­ns including Sisimiut, Greenland’s second-largest city; Pond Inlet in Nunavut, Canada, where local Inuit residents will guide a walk through town, and Croker Bay at Devon Island, the world’s largest uninhabite­d island. seabourn.com
