Seeking out rugged mountains, rolling tundra, icecaps and glaciers, this adventure is entirely north of the Arctic Circle!

We’ll hug Baffin Island’s fjords, surrounded by towering cliffs, and then cross Davis Strait to witness Greenland’s epic icescape.

We begin in the High Arctic archipelago at the entrance to the Northwest Passage, and visit Beechey Island to see the graves of crew-members from the ill-fated Franklin expedition. The search for Franklin’s ship continues to this day.

During this peak wildlife season, we’ll cruise Prince Leopold Island, where thousands of Thick-Billed Murres, Northern Fulmars and Black-legged Kittiwakes summer and call in at Nigingnaniq (Isabella Bay), a pristine feeding ground for most of the region’s threatened bowhead whale population.

On Baffin Island’s tip is Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet), overlooking the immense beauty of Bylot Island. Here our Inuit hosts will welcome us with creative Inuit games and the unique sounds of throat singing before we set sail for Greenland.

On our route south is Ilulissat Icefjord where most of the Atlantic’s icebergs are formed. Our journey comes to an end after sailing the spectacular 168 km Kangerlussuaq Fjord.
