Observe Canada's Arctic wildlife on this cruise to Baffin Island and Greenland.
On this trip, we seek the wilds and the wonders of the Arctic, in the welcoming company of those who call it home! Beginning in Qausuittuq (Resolute Bay), we’ll enter expedition mode as we seek polar bears, whales, birds, and muskoxen throughout Lancaster Sound. At Beechey Island, we’ll pay our respects at the graves of three of Sir John Franklin’s men; at Dundas Harbour, we’ll explore the abandoned HBC and RCMP post that once guarded the gateway to the Northwest Passage.
Mittimatilik (Pond Inlet) with its stunning views of Bylot Island is a dynamic contemporary Inuit community; we’ll spend the day getting to know the place before striking out across Baffin Bay for Greenland. Towering mountains, pristine fjords, and colourful communities are among the attractions of this mighty Arctic island. The modern Greenlandic center of Illulissat offers museums, shopping, and cafés with a European flair. The Jakobshavn Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and source of the majority of the icebergs in the North Atlantic, provides a dramatic climax to a northern journey unlike any other.
ATTENTION SINGLE TRAVELLERS: This cruise welcomes solo travellers. Most cabin categories on the ship are available as a private cabin to single travellers for no additional cost.
