Heart of the Arctic
Start your journey in Iqaluit, Nunavut, the home of the Iqalummiut people. You will then transfer to the Zodiac that will take you to the Ocean Endeavor through the Iqaluit Harbour. Be prepared to learn about the compelling scenery from professional geologists, look for wildlife, and enjoy the ocean spray. Visit the beautiful art communities of Nunavut and learn about Inuit art and culture from the expert artists themselves.
Akpatok Island, off the coast of Nunavut, a designated reserve for wild birds and home to the global North Atlantic thick-billed murre population, will fascinate and wow you especially with the educational lectures to learn about these thick feathered Arctic birds. Zodiac around Greenland, and come close to the faces of majestic glaciers!
Being so far north, the sun will not set for 18-20 hours, your inner photographer will be leaping for joy at the beautiful sights and scenery this daylight has to offer. This will also allow for you to marvel at the Arctic tundra in bloom – a rare sight.
