Enjoy $500 discount on Adventure Arctic cruise as a JRS member

22 January 2024

We are excited to be teaming up with cruise operator Adventure Canada to offer an exclusive discount for their experience-of-a-lifetime ‘Into the North West Passage’ cruise in August 2024, featuring onboard talks with Ken McGoogan, author of Fatal Passage and a Patron of JRS.

Anyone booking through the John Rase Society site, referencing the promo code ‘JRS2024’, will receive an exclusive $500 booking credit and the John Rae Society will also receive a $500 donation.

This $500 booking credit is in addition to the 25% discount Adventure Canada is currently offering on this expedition, which promises a wealth of memory-making moments aboard the Ocean Endeavour, including sailing through The North West Passage, which would not be possible without Dr John Rae having discovered the last navigable link of the route.

The 17-day cruise will take you to the edge of the world while bringing you close to the nature, culture, history and people of the Arctic. You will enjoy workshops and presentations, learn new skills and get out on deck with your binoculars to look for whales, seabirds, and marine wildlife.

Ken McGoogan, best-selling author of several books about Arctic exploration, will be the guest historian, offering insight on the tragedy, torment and travails of explorers such as Franklin and Rae. There will be the chance to pay your own respects to the crews of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror at the haunting memorial to Sir John Franklin’s failed expedition at Beechey Island.
