Baffin Explorer | Narwhals & Polar Bears

Holiday Duration: 8 Nights

Overview

Overview

Rugged mountains, stunning glaciers, northern seabirds, narwhals, and Inuit culture await you on a truly amazing Baffin Island Arctic tour.

Wildlife is returning to this very rich area of the Arctic as the summer dawns. There are northern birds in abundance, including thick-billed murre, black-legged kittiwake, and king and common eiders. You may see Sabine’s and Thayer’s gulls, red-throated loons, or even all-white ivory gulls!

The mixing of ocean currents makes for very rich marine life. Hopefully you will see several species of seals, and the amazing spiral-tusked narwhal. With luck you may see polar bear or the endangered bowhead whale. Remote wilderness, Arctic landscapes, northern wildlife, and fascinating culture promise to make this the trip of a lifetime.

The trips runs in June – ask us for exact dates.

"The excursions were also perfect"

I would like to thank whoever put together the itinerary, chose the hotels and wrote the information for us to use en route. Everything was excellent! Each hotel was very good quality, but very different from the others. We saw such a variety of things. Our information led us to places we would never have found without it. The excursions were also perfect (canoeing, whale watching, sea kayaking), each of them very small businesses but with very friendly staff. Everything was very remote, which is what we expected, but we were so glad that we found it and were able to enjoy the essence of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Overall, we couldn't fault anything and we would be very keen to use your services again in the future.
