The North West Passage

Triumph and Tragedy in the Arctic Ice


For decades Britain, Europe and America wished to find a route linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, to shorten the great ocean journeys to the East.


Finding a route between Greenland and the Bering Sea would prove well nigh impossible, notwithstanding the Arctic Ocean's icecap and sea ice. A number of attempts to find the fabled North-West Passage had failed, many ending in disaster.


It would be perhaps the greatest Polar explorer of all, the Norwegian Roald Amundsen, who in 1903-1905, with a small boat and team finally found a way through the North-West Passage.


The renowned lecturer, Rob Caskie, will share stories of daring men and triumphs of the human spirit in the frozen Arctic.


All proceeds to charity – Hexham Rotary Emergency Disaster Fund and Tynedale Hospice at home.


Please note: with all proceeds going to charity there are no benefits for Friends of the Forum.
