For centuries, attempts were made to cross the passage in order to find a shorter route between Europe and Asia. None were successful and many lives were lost until Norwegian Roald Amundsen finally succeeded in 1906. The Passage is still inaccessible for most parts of the year and only a few exploration companies offer a full Northwest Passage crossing attempt in the summer. Travelling through the Northwest Passage is a unique experience only for the most adventurous explorers, and a unique experience.
