At a Glance

Embark on an expedition north of the Arctic Circle in summer, when long days allow for plenty of time to absorb the incredible environments around you. Beginning in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and ending in Greenland, this voyage takes you into dramatic fjords, close to actively calving glaciers and through icy waters home to an array of majestic wildlife.
Activity Level
Walking up to two miles per day over hilly, rocky, uneven terrain. Climbing stairs between decks on board as well as external gangway stairs to transfer between the ship and Zodiacs. Most embarkations and disembarkations will be via Zodiac, which require stepping up or down approximately 12 inches. Zodiac landings will generally entail disembarking onto rocky or gravelly beaches, and in windy weather can make for rather splashy rides.
Small Group
Love to learn and explore in a small-group setting? These adventures offer small, personal experiences with groups of 10 to 24 participants.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Search for bears, whales, and walrus in their Arctic feeding grounds.
  • By Zodiac, get a close look at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Icefjord, located at the mouth of one of the world’s most active glaciers.
  • Engage with leading experts and local hosts regarding the future of Arctic conservation, with additional expertise provided by special guests from the World Wildlife Fund - Canada.
