Baffin Island Walrus & Bowheads 2019 picture Iconic wildlife in unforgettable wilderness. Travel to the land of midnight sun with local guides in search of the ultimate in photography and wilderness travel.

Far north lies the domain of two truly awesome mammals—the walrus and the bowhead whale. Our search for these remarkable Arctic residents takes us to Igloolik and the shores of the Foxe Basin in Nunavut, Canada.

The Foxe Basin and adjacent Baffin Island are areas rich in wildlife, where Inuit have lived for centuries. At this time of year, bowhead whales feed along the edge of the sea ice, and groups of walrus can be found basking in the sun.

We travel with Inuit guides in search of these massive creatures and more. We will also find a variety of northern birds, including red phalarope, common eider, Sabine’s gulls, and Arctic tern. Photography should be superb with twenty-four-hour warm Arctic light, calm waters, and a backdrop of gleaming ice.
