Arctic Safari

Arctic

Our classic Arctic expedition begins by exploring Greenland’s dramatic fiords and dynamic maritime communities. The great ice fjord at Ilulissat, source of the majority of the icebergs in the North Atlantic, is one of many highlights along Greenland’s spectacular western coastline.

Across the Davis Strait in Nunavut, the Canadian Arctic experience begins in Qikiqtarjuaq (Broughton Island). Opportunities for polar bear, whales, and muskox abound on Devon Island, while Prince Leopold Island is one of Canada’s best birding areas. Abandoned RCMP and HBC posts offer a haunting glimpse into the region’s history of exploration and trade.

At Beechey Island, we’ll pay our respects at the graves of three of Sir John Franklin’s men. And our departure point, Resolute Bay, memorializes the courage of the Inuit of Canada’s Arctic.

This itinerary represents Adventure Canada’s definitive approach to expedition travel and we will spend our days searching for every exploratory opportunity. In the winding fjords of Greenland, in the multitudinous islands of Nunavut, we will live and breathe the natural history of some of the planet’s most striking features. We will search for the animal life that ekes out their hardy lives in hostile conditions and find striking beauty in the immense and indomitable north.
