Northwest Passage


The Northwest Passage


Amundsen and crew of the Gjøa

The Gjøa Expedition, 1903-1906; during which Roald Amundsen successfully negotiated the fabled Northwest Passage in the Arctic.

“The choice of vessel was also based on the one principal thesis to which Amundsen subscribed on this and every other of his subsequent expeditions: a party should be the smallest possible consistent with the purpose of the enterprise.” —
