Arctic Safari 2017 picture Our classic Arctic expedition begins by exploring Greenland’s fjords and communities with hosts from WWF-Canada.

The great icefjord at Ilulissat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and source of the majority of the icebergs in the North Atlantic, is one of many highlights. Across the Davis Strait, the Canadian Arctic experience begins in Qikiqtarjuaq (Broughton Island). As we head north, opportunities for polar bear, whales, and musk ox abound on Devon Island, while Prince Leopold Island is one of Canada’s best birding areas. Abandoned RCMP and HBC posts offer a glimpse into the region’s rich history; at Beechey Island, we’ll pay our respects at the graves of three of Sir John Franklin’s men. Resolute Bay memorializes the courage of the Inuit of Canada’s Arctic.

On this trip, we will live and breathe the natural history of some of the planet’s most striking features as we search for the cultures and wildlife of the vast and beautiful north.

Sondre Stromfjord is one of the longest fjords in the world and boasts 168 kilometres of superb scenery. Kangerlussuaq, the town at its eastern head, means ‘the big fjord.’ 

We begin our adventure by sailing down this dramatic fjord as the sun sets before us.

The Ocean Endeavour boasts a 1B ice class, enabling her to freely explore throughout the Arctic summer. Launched in 1982, she has had numerous upgrades, most recently in 2010 and 2014.

The stylish vessel is at home among the glorious settings we seek.
