2017 is our thirtieth anniversary and Canada’s 150th birthday. We've been working on a number of special projects that will highlight and celebrate these histories amidst some of Canada's most spectacular and important locations.

 

Whether we’re cruising pristine fjords, photographing wildlife by Zodiac, gathering in an Arctic hamlet, or walking over tundra in bloom, Adventure Canada is about passionate people visiting inspiring places.

 

And there's so much to look forward to: departing Quebec City for Mighty Saint Lawrence; returning to Sable Island; circumnavigating Newfoundland; cruising Greenland & Wild Labrador. Revisiting our classics: Heart of the Arctic and Arctic Safari. And capping the season with our Canadian Signature Experiences: voyages into, and out of the legendary Northwest Passage. Check out our new Antarctica and South Georgia or Tanzania programs as well. Won’t you join us?

After three decades, our vision for travel essentially comes down to three things: visiting special places, with special people, in a special way.

 

Special places naturally include a mix of favourite haunts, and exciting new destinations. For 2018, that means a return to Scotland and the North Atlantic—and an all-new expedition, Iceland Circumnavigation! Plus, our beloved stomping grounds in Newfoundland and Labrador, Greenland, the Canadian Arctic, and our signature Northwest Passage trips.

 

Special people? That would be YOU, of course. And our amazing staff! Local culturalists, recognized experts, bestselling authors, visionary artists, and inspiring musicians, all of them dedicated to making every trip an opportunity to fully engage with nature, culture, and one another.

 

The special way we travel is really at the heart of Adventure Canada’s success. We believe travel is about engagement, education, and enlightenment. Every moment is a learning moment; every destination, a chance to deepen our appreciation of the world around us—our fellow people and the wild creatures that share our earthly home. Our hands-on approach to hiking, Zodiac cruising, wildlife viewing, and connecting with communities has inspired our passengers for three decades and counting.

 

That’s what thirty years of expedition cruising have taught us. Go to the ends of the earth. Go with great people. And go there with open eyes, open hearts, and open minds. This year, more than ever, that’s our recipe for success—and we’re making magic happen.

 

We'd love you to come along.

Scotland Slowly

 

Scotland Slowly 2018

 

Scotland’s western and northern isles are a dream destination—and for many, a long-awaited return to ancestral homelands. Culture, heritage, and natural history abound here, echoes of Europe’s ancient past.

 



 

Iceland Circumnavigation

 

North Atlantic Saga 2018

 

Emerging from the mists of legend, the north Atlantic isles are wonders of geology, ecology, and human history. From the craggy coastline of Scotland, past the staggering cliffs of the Faroe Islands to the volcanic plains of Iceland, this expedition charts a course unlike any other on Earth.

 



 

Iceland Circumnavigation

 

Iceland Circumnavigation 2018

 

Explore a mystical land shaped by fire and ice on this excursion to the ancient Viking stronghold of Iceland. Voyaging aboard the Ocean Endeavour, you’ll see Iceland at its best and most diverse. Marvel at the geological wonders of this island at the edge of the Arctic Circle, exploring its unforgettable culture, history, and people—from small fishing communities, to the ancient and modern capital, Reykjavík.

 



 

Arctic Safari

 

Arctic Safari 2018

 

On this trip, we seek the wilds and the wonders of the Arctic, in the welcoming company of those who call it home! Beginning in Qausuittuq (Resolute Bay), we’ll enter expedition mode as we seek polar bears, whales, birds, and muskoxen throughout Lancaster Sound. At Beechey Island, we’ll pay our respects at the graves of three of Sir John Franklin’s men; at Dundas Harbour, we’ll explore the abandoned HBC and RCMP posts that once guarded the gateway to the Northwest Passage.

 



 

Into the Northwest Passage

 

Into the Northwest Passage 2018

 

To sail the Northwest Passage is to sail living history. Meet the Inuit who have called this remarkable place home for generations, and join the ranks of the adventurers who have been lured by its legend.

 



 

Out of the Northwest Passage

 

Out of the Northwest Passage 2018

 

The Northwest Passage remains one of the world’s last true frontiers, and this expedition takes you to its heart. In Canada’s vast northern wilderness, wildlife roams free and the great geological forces shaping our planet reveal themselves to the wondering eye. The recent finding of Franklin’s ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror reminds us that we sail into history, legend, and myth that continues today!

 



 

Greenland & Wild Labrador

 

Greenland & Wild Labrador 2018

 

This extraordinary sailing showcases staggering geographic diversity, covering over 2,200 nautical miles from the head of Sondre Stromfjord in Greenland all the way to St. John’s, NL— stopping at four Canadian National Parks along the way.

 



 

Newfoundland Circumnavigation

 

Newfoundland Circumnavigation 2018

 

Starting and ending in historic St. John’s, this trip offers an intimate experience of Newfoundland’s lively culture and dramatic scenery via daily expedition stops and community visits. This sailing is ideally timed for viewing spectacular fall colours and taking advantage of excellent hiking opportunities. Experience legendary music, food, and hospitality in true Newfoundland fashion: by sea!
