The Northwest Passage is a sea route through the Arctic Ocean, along the northern coast of North America via waterways amidst the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, says Wikipedia.[1][2]

Sought by explorers for centuries as a possible trade route, the Arctic pack ice prevents regular marine shipping throughout the year.
