9 September

Setting sail from Cambridge Bay

The remote community of Cambridge Bay is located on the southeast coast of Victoria Island, part of the Canadian territory of Nunavut. It's the largest stop for ships transiting the Northwest Passage, despite a population of less than 2,000, and it's a great place to learn about the wildlife of the Arctic and the culture of the Inuit people who live here.

Arriving in Punta Arenas

The weather-beaten city of Punta Arenas is a laid back and welcoming place, in spite of its inhospitable location on the shores of the Strait of Magellan. Nearby attractions include penguin colonies and the dramatic scenery of Torres del Paine National Park, while beyond the southern horizon lie the frozen wastes of Antarctica.

This purpose-built ice class expedition vessel is perfectly kitted out for polar exploration, with zodiacs and expert lecturers on board, and accommodates 318 guests in comfortable cabins.

What we love

Fram emerges in 2020 from an extensive refurbishment, with upgraded cabins, suites and public areas. Designed for polar cruising, she regularly visits the Arctic and Antarctic, with an ice-strengthened hull and a wealth of technological gizmos on board. Cabins are simple but comfortable, and the observation lounge and restaurant are designed to provide wonderful views of the ever-changing landscape outside. If you're feeling brave there are even outdoor Jacuzzis to keep you warm as the icebergs float past!
