Visit Beechey Island National Historic Site

Pay your respects at one of the most notorious sites in the Arctic: Beechey Island. Learn about the famed site where the ill-fated Franklin Expedition overwintered from 1845–1846. See the graves of three of Franklin’s men (along with one of a fourth man from a later Northwest Passage expedition) that are a haunting memorial to the heyday of European Arctic exploration.

Marvel at enormous icebergs at Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Visit the fastest-calving glacier in the world, which spills thousands of enormous icebergs into the spectacular Ilulissat Icefjord in Disko Bay, Greenland every year. View the icebergs from the shore on a hike along the boardwalk—then board a Zodiac to cruise your way among them!

Enjoy an Inuit cultural welcome at Mittimatilik

Enjoy the warmth of an Inuit welcome as drum dancers, throat singers, and cultural ambassadors share their stories, songs, and connections to the land. See the stunning views of Bylot Island, try your luck against a local athlete at Inuit games, and look for handicrafts and carvings for purchase at the cultural centre.

Explore the spectacular west coast of Greenland

Hike, kayak, stroll, and Zodiac cruise at stops along the west coast of Greenland, a region deeply cut by spectacular fjords. Soak in this stunning scenery, where glaciers are spawned from the enormous Greenland ice cap and produce the mighty icebergs that ride their way north on currents before being carried southbound for Newfoundland.
