Your taste for adventure and our carefully crafted sailing schedule will ensure every destination is at its stunning best!

The True North is purpose built to sail deep into the very heart of wilderness - we visit areas that larger ships simply cannot access.

We deploy comfortable expedition boats (not rubber boats) and discover wilderness in small groups. And to add yet another dimension to adventure, most cruise options feature an onboard helicopter.
