Arctic Safari 2014 picture

Call us for current specials!

Our classic Arctic expedition begins by exploring Greenland’s dramatic fiords and dynamic maritime communities. The great icefiord 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 Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet). Opportunities for polar bear, whales, and muskox abound on Devon Island, while Prince Leopold Island is among Canada’s best birding areas. Dundas Harbour’s abandoned RCMP and HBC posts offer a haunting glimpse into history.

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.

Lying at the head of the longest fjord in western Greenland, Kangerlussuaq, the start of our voyage, has one of the most stable climates in the region. Still, temperatures can range from -50C in the winter to as high as 28C in summer.

Kangerlussuaq means 'The Big Fjord' in Greenlandic. The name is appropriate: the namesake fiord is 168km long!
