Arctic kayaking expedition around Ellesmere Island in northern Canada


Paddle at the top of the world on a sea kayaking trip around Ellesmere Island in Arctic Canada.  Ellesmere Island is one of the world's most pristine wilderness areas and one of the most remote places in the world for a kayaking adventure.  

The Alexandra Fjord is on the east coast of Ellesmere Island, in the Qikiqtaaluk region of Nunavut Canada. This magnificent area is found high above the arctic circle at nearly 80 degrees north latitude, and only 30 kilometers from the west coast of Greenland. Tide water glaciers calve icebergs into a magnificent fjord system, ringed by the highest mountains in eastern North America.

Extreme isolation and harsh weather conditions for much of the year have restricted explorers to this this part of the world. Therefore this fjord system still holds many secrets of past civilizations. Each summer for a brief period beneath the midnight sun, the temperature moderates. The snow melts from the rugged mountain peaks, and the sea ice breaks up. This provides a brief opportunity to explore this
amazing place by kayak.

This sea kayaking expedition is in one of the most remote places in the world. The islands and fjords of the Buchanan Bay are rich with wild life. Some of the best preserved artifacts, and ruins from Thule, Dorset, and Viking cultures dot the shore lines. Alexandra fjord is home to muskox, walrus, narwhal and polar bears.

The Alexandra Fjord expedition is perfect for seasoned arctic adventurers. Participants should be adventurous, and looking for one of the most unique travel experiences on earth.
