Seabourn Venture Begins Second Season in the Arctic
Seabourn Venture’s exciting second season of Arctic Expeditions is about to begin!
On May 24, Seabourn Venture set sail on an 11-day voyage from Leith to Reykjavík, Iceland, when she will begin her second season in the Arctic with a series of 14- and 15-day voyages to Greenland and Iceland. Between June and August 2023, she will visit a number of remote destinations such as Scoresby Sound, Greenland, home to the largest and longest fjord system in the world; Pond Inlet, Nunavut, an Inuit community near the eastern entry to the Northwest Passage; and more.
On August 27, 2023, Seabourn Venture will embark on Seabourn’s first-ever voyage through the Northwest Passage with a 23-day adventure from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Nome, Alaska, that includes pre- and post-voyage hotel stays in Reykjavík, Iceland, and Anchorage, Alaska. The ship will offer guests the extraordinary opportunity to travel to one of the most infamous and storied passages in the world from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and filled with an abundance of history, wildlife, and unique landscapes.
Following the Northwest Passage voyage, Seabourn Venture will head down the west coast of the Americas before reaching Antarctica, where she will explore the “White Continent” between November 2023 and February 2024. In late February 2024, Seabourn Venture will make a once-in-a-lifetime crossing of the Atlantic encompassing the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Tristan da Cunha, and Ascension Island. In March and April, the ship will take two sailings up the west coast of Africa and Europe to be in position for the 2024 Arctic season.
