Join us as we trace the route that became an obsession of so many explorers in the past.
Now with the easing of the icepack and the opportunities it brings, the Passage is once again in the news. Now is the time to explore this remarkable region.
In the community of Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet) we’ll enjoy throat singing, Inuit games, and a view many consider the best in the North. Then we head west in search of the elusive Narwhal before reaching Devon Island and the Dundas Harbour RCMP historical site.
We’ll visit Beechey Island and pay our respects at the graves of sailors from the lost Franklin expedition.
Along the coast of Somerset Island, we’ll cruise the opposing tides of Bellot Strait, seeking whale and polar bear in the nutrient rich waters.
Also, we’ll visit Taloyoak, where the famed John Ross expeditions pinpointed the Magnetic North Pole. Continuing west we visit areas of significant geological, historical and biological importance.
Daily expeditions will allow us to stretch our legs and enjoy the landscape.
