Why Travel with The Northwest Passage

Security

Sure, you're out here to challenge yourself and take some risks, but you want to know that you'll come home happy and healthy. Your safety is our top priority in all of our planning. Our guides are experienced and in trained in the hazards and rewards of each trip activity and destination. Each guide carries appropriate certifications in first aid, wilderness medicine and sport specific instructing and skills certificates.

Environmental Stewardship

The Northwest Passage has a proud tradition of environmental and social stewardship. Simply put, we believe it's important to take care of the places we visit, and give back to the people who act as our local guides and hosts. To minimize our global impact we offset 100% of the carbon footprint of each and every adventure (and we'll help you do the same for your domestic or international travel). Contact us for more information about our environmental initiatives, and for tips to reduce your impact on the environment at home and while on vacation.

Comfort

At the end of a day spent outdoors, you want a hearty meal and good night's rest. We pay careful attention to the food and accommodations you enjoy. On inn-to-inn trips you visit small, family owned inns and restaurants, chosen for their welcoming hospitality, fresh food and high service standards. For our camping trips we prepare delicious meals in your campsite, offering up fresh seafood on a secluded caye or hearty fajitas enjoyed around a campfire. We use high quality tents and equipment, and help you choose the right personal gear to keep you snug and comfortable all night. Fun! This is what you came for! All our guides love what they do and are eager to share their love of the outdoors and adventure with you. You'll enjoy the unique opportunity of sharing your adventure with new friends and old among our small groups and friendly staff. But which adventure is the one for you?
