Arctic Explorer 2014 picture

This epic adventure begins at the entrance to the Northwest Passage. We’ll seek bowhead whales in Niginganiq (Isabella Bay)— the world’s first Inuit-initiated whale sanctuary— and polar bears, walrus and muskox on Devon Island’s tundra. We’ll cruise Prince Leopold Island, where Thick-Billed Murres, Northern Fulmars and Black-legged Kittiwakes nest.

At Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet), our hosts will welcome us with throat-singing and Inuit games. We’ll visit Kangiqtugaapik (Clyde River), Gateway to the Great Fiords, then cross Davis Strait to embrace Greenland’s stirring icescape. There, we’ll zip among the freshly calved bergs off Ilulissat in our Zodiacs, marvel at Uummannaq’s heart-shaped mountain, and explore the wilds around Itilleq. Spectacular Kangerlussuaq Fjord makes a glorious finale to our trip.

As remote and challenging as its name suggests, Resolute is a rugged community serving the mining, military and exploration industries. A monument honours the hamlet's first permanent citizens, relocated by the Canadian government to help establish sovereignty in the Far North.

Here embark the Sea Adventurer and commence our voyage.
