A JOURNEY LIKE NO OTHER
Take on a formidable 900-mile journey close to the North Pole, traversing shifting ice floes and narrow sea passages against the backdrop of the Arctic’s untouched beauty. Your odyssey begins in Nuuk, Greenland and concludes in Nome, Alaska - a 50-day expedition in August 2026 that is an authentic test of endurance and skill, and one of the last great exploration trips on the planet.
Join a crew of ten, including six adventurers like yourself. This is not a leap into the unknown; it’s a carefully planned adventure with comprehensive training, including an ocean survival course and at least one multi-week qualifying Arctic circle passage, ensuring readiness for this ultimate challenge. The Specialist gear included in the price is yours to keep.
Our 70-foot yacht, purchased and customised for this expedition, is not just a vessel but a statement in sustainable innovation.
As an Expedition Club member, you'll be an integral part of the yacht's journey from blueprint to reality. Gain behind-the-scenes access, receive regular updates, meet the experts at private events, and visit the shipyard in France to witness the yacht’s transformation first-hand.
First access to sea trials awaits you including training voyages to Svalbard and Arctic destinations, culminating in six members navigating the Northwest Passage with all equipment and training included.

All this gives you access to incredible sailing opportunities around the world at discounted prices which could easily cover the cost of membership.

The Northwest Passage is the ultimate adventure, but it comes with no guarantees. While we plan meticulously, unexpected conditions like ice and weather can impact the journey. Our top priority is the safety of the crew and the vessel, so we won’t hesitate to return to a safe haven if conditions become risky. This isn’t the place to take unnecessary risks.
At Wavysail, we typically welcome adventurers of all experience levels on our trips. However, the Northwest Passage is an exceptional challenge. We conduct interviews to ensure crew suitability. Ideal crew members have prior sailing experience including ocean passages, such as participation in the Clipper Race, the Fastnet or similar endeavours.
However, joining at Adventurer level doesn’t require previous sailing experience. There are opportunities for you to sail on this remarkable yacht, even if you have very limited prior sailing experience.
In the unlikely event the expedition is cancelled, or the yacht is not completed, you will not need to pay any "Berth" fees and your membership benefits will continue, including up to 50% off all Wavysail trips until the end of December 2026
Memberships aren’t refundable.
Berth fees, once paid are not refundable, but may be transferrable to other people, subject to the Skipper's approval or could be turned into credit against any other Wavysail adventure. We will take each situation on a case by case basis.
