High Arctic: from Greenland to Canada and Back

Take a circuit beginning and ending in Greenland, traveling to Canada and back through the open sea, visiting some of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world in the legendary high Arctic. We will cruise through awe-inspiring fjords in both countries, including the 25-mile Ilulissat Icefjord (UNESCO World Heritage Site). We will visit Sirmilik National Park and the Nijurtiqavvik National Wildlife Area, where wildlife lovers will be delighted to (most likely) see polar bears, whales (beluga, minke, bowhead, and narwhal), as well as several species of seals and birds. We will visit small Inuit villages in both Greenland and Canada: take in Inuit culture at the museum in Sisimiut, which tells the story of life in the high Arctic over 4,000 years ago. Immerse yourself in Inuit art at Pond Inlet, Nunavit, where more artists per capita live than any other place in the world. We will cruise the spectacular fjords aboard the Silver Cloud and also take Zodiac cruises to get a closer look. Most sites will be visited on foot, whenever landings are possible. Throughout the voyage, learn about the geology, wildlife and botany of these starkly beautiful locations from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable on board Expedition Team.
