Arctic Safari 2016 picture

Our classic Arctic expedition begins by exploring Greenland’s dramatic fjords and dynamic maritime communities. The great icefjord at Ilulissat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and 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). As we head north, opportunities for polar bear, whales, and musk ox abound on Devon Island, while Prince Leopold Island remains one of Canada’s best birding areas. Abandoned rcmp and hbc posts offer a haunting glimpse into the region’s rich history of exploration and trade.

At Beechey Island, we’ll pay our respects at the graves of three of Sir John Franklin’s men, along with a crewmember from the search ship Investigator. Our disembarkation 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. It is our most wildlife-oriented expedition. 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 animals that eke out their lives in hostile conditions and find beauty in the immense and indomitable north.

This itinerary features some French programming.

We begin our adventure by sailing down this dramatic fjord as the sun sets before us.
