INTREPID TRAVEL is promoting three new voyages around the Arctic.

A 21-day 'Extreme Greenland' tour gives travellers the chance to make polar history by being on the first passenger-bearing vessel to make the journey over Greenland's northern tip and down its western coast.

Travellers will visit Northeast Greenland National Park via Cape Morris Jesup, Shannon and Ella Islands, Ittoqqortoormiit, Rodefjord, Danmark Island and Ottowa. Prices lead in at £17,000 per person based on an August 4, 2016 departure.

An 18-day 'Best of the Canadian High Arctic' tour is also being offered where guests visit Sisimiut, Uummannaq, Upernavik and Qaanaaq, Illulissat Fjord, Apparsuit and McDougall Sound, where walruses and polar bears inhabit. Prices start from £14,835 based on an August 22 departure.

Alternatively, an 18-day 'Ultimate Northwest Passage' tour, departing on September 6, leads in at £15,780 and takes visitors to northern Canada, Alaska and eastern Russia, as well as seeing Thule sites at Radstock Bay, Aulavik National Park and Amundsen Gulf.

To celebrate the launch of the new voyages, the company is offering a discount of 15% on suites and corner suites and 10% off twin cabins on each voyage, for bookings made before September 1.
