First of the three new itineraries is the 16-day Greenland to Churchill voyage, which has as its highlights polar bears and walrus and a visit to the local Inuit communities. The voyage will also take the passengers on a trip to Greenland and then to Canada’s famous North-West passage.

The Greenland and Canada’s High Arctic voyage is a 13-day cruise which travels to Illulissat, a UNESCO world heritage site glacier as well as to the BeechyIsland, which was the site used for landing by the Franklin Expedition. Incidentally, it is arguably the most important landmark in all of the Canadian Arctic.

Apart from the above three new voyages, Peregrine also has its popular old voyages including the 11-day Spitsbergen Explorer cruise around Svalbard archipelago and of course the 14-day Spitsbergen, East Greenland & Iceland voyage.
