Guests travelling with Adventure Canada in 2022 will be subject to Adventure Canada’s pre-boarding and on-board testing procedures.
Guests are responsible for covering all of their COVID-19 testing-related costs; any required testing procedures are not included in the price of your expedition.

Testing to Enter Canada
As of April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada will not require a PCR or rapid antigen test to enter the country.
Please see the section on Testing to Join Your Adventure Canada Expedition below.
Testing to Enter Greenland
As of January 26, 2022, Greenland does not require international travellers to take a PCR or rapid antigen test to enter the country.
If you are making your own travel arrangements direct to Greenland in order to join the vessel in Kangerlussuaq, please notify Adventure Canada at least 30 days prior to your voyage. You will still be required to follow our pre-boarding testing requirements (see below).
Testing to Join Your Adventure Canada Expedition
In order to mitigate the possibility of a COVID outbreak on board the vessel, Adventure Canada will require a real time (rapid) PCR test within 72 hours of boarding, as well as an antigen test immediately prior to boarding.
PCR Testing Requirement
All guests and crew are required to provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of joining an Adventure Canada charter flight or the vessel.
We strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment for a PCR test at least a month prior to your expedition, as there may be limited time slots available at testing locations. Please note, when scheduling your appointment, select “travel” as your reason for taking the test.
The following is a small selection of testing locations you could use to schedule your PCR test. Please note, we are not affiliated with any of these businesses or facilities; we merely provide the information for your convenience.
From Adventure Canada's expedition departure cities:
- Mississauga (near Toronto Pearson Airport) F. H. Health

For international travellers arriving to one of Canada's international airports:
Rapid Antigen Testing Requirement
Within 48 hours of embarking the Ocean Endeavour or a charter flight (whichever comes first) Adventure Canada will administer a rapid antigen test to all guests, expedition team members, and crew. Specific details about the timing of your rapid antigen test will be provided in your final joining instructions.
If your rapid antigen test comes back positive, we will administer an additional rapid PCR test. If your rapid PCR test comes back negative, you will be allowed to proceed with boarding. Please remember that guests are responsible for covering all of their own COVID-19 testing-related costs.
