Cruise Canada’s remote coastlines on an adventurous expedition that takes you deep into nature in Canada’s High Arctic. Polar bears range across ancient landscapes, beluga whales calve in sheltered estuaries and First Nations people hunt, fish and travel as their ancestors did for thousands of years.

This is Canada, a remarkable continent of wild rivers, soaring mountains and untold beauty, where wildlife flourishes in a vast, untouched wilderness. Discover the icy and labyrinthine channels of Canada’s legendary Northwest Passage, a route that has enchanted explorers such as Franklin, Amundsen and Larsen for centuries. A voyage along the Northwest Passage offers the chance to experience the archipelago of islands and channels that form Canada’s High Arctic region. In Nunavut, discover Canada’s largest island, Baffin Island, and visit Beechey Island, the final resting place of some of the heroic explorers to have ventured here. Along the way, we hope to meet First Nations people who call this remote wilderness home, and encounter enigmatic arctic wildlife, including walrus, beluga whale, polar bear, musk ox and the elusive narwhal, not to mention the abundant number of nesting birds on Bylot Island, in Sermilik National Park.

Hike on Devon Island, a polar desert and the world’s largest uninhabited island. Zodiac cruise along spectacular fjords and remote coastlines looking for wildlife and beneath towering cliffs echoing with noisy nesting birds. Discover important historical sites including relics of a dilapidated Royal Canadian Mounted Police outpost, remnants of a former Hudson’s Bay Company trading post and ancient semi-subterranean Thule dwellings. In Autumn, when the night sky is cloaked in darkness, look up and you may catch a glimpse of nature’s most dazzling light show, Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights.
