This epic adventure begins at the entrance to the Northwest Passage. We'll visit the final resting place of the ill-fated Franklin Expedition at Beechey Island and search for polar bears and walrus in far north Baffin Island. At Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet), our hosts will welcome us with throat-singing and Inuit games, before we explore Baffin's mighty fiords. We'll seek bowhead whales in Niginganiq (Isabella Bay)— the world's first Inuit-initiated whale sanctuary. Crossing Davis Strait, we'll be met by Greenland's stirring icescape. There, we'll zip among the freshly calved bergs off Ilulissat in our Zodiacs, marvel at Uummannaq's heart-shaped mountain, and and hike around Itilleq Fjord. Spectacular Kangerlussuaq Fjord makes a glorious finale to our trip.
