|Across the Top of the World Optional Excursion
In co-operation with the Wrangel Island Nature Reserve we are excited to offer a very special Overland Expedition through the heart of this incredible landscape.
This wilderness venture is exclusive to Heritage Expeditions passengers, has never been attempted before and presents you with the chance to explore where only a handful of scientists have been privileged to travel. Offered to members of our 'Across The Top Of The World’ expedition, this is a 150km traverse over 3 days into the most magnificent frozen wilderness you can imagine. Travel is by 6 wheel All Terrain Vehicle and there will be 2 trips per voyage: one southbound and one northbound between Rodgers Inlet and Dream Head.
Sailing around the island you make expedition landings at historical sites and secret bays bursting with wildlife, but traversing right through the centre has not been possible until now. Imagine the silence at the centre of an island forgotten by the rest of the world, seeing Snow Geese nesting close by Snowy Owls to give protection from the Arctic Foxes. And passing over the tundra in the company of Musk Ox and reindeer as wildflower and yellow poppies blooms blanket the grasses. Pack your camera and your sense of daring for a true once in a lifetime adventure.
Cost per person: US$1,250.
Price Includes: transport, accommodation (basic field huts) and food. This is in addition to the cost of the cruise. Each overland expedition is strictly limited to 5 persons and positions will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
