I regard my trek with my sons (in Nepal) led by Satish as one of the highlights of my life. ...Satish's care was just extraordinary....I could not recommend World Expeditions and Satish too highly.

Pathways to Franklin

This journey following in the footsteps of Franklin will appeal to both lovers of wildlife and the dramatic history of early polar exploration. We will trace the routes of the early explorers who sailed, and perished, in these waters as they sought a way through the fabled Northwest Passage. Our itinerary includes a visit to one of the largest migratory bird sanctuaries in the world, and we hope to enjoy frequent sightings of seals as well as beluga whale. The mythical narwhal inhabits these waters, and we also hope to encounter polar bears at special locations that we have discovered over the years.
