South Baffin Explorer

16 Days

For millennia indigenous people have expressed and kept alive their own cultural heritage through art, and it’s the art scene local to this barely visited area south of Baffin Island which is our focus. Embarking the ship in Nunavut’s capital, Iqaluit, we travel east and visit local communities at Cape Dorset, home to migratory caribou, seabirds, whales, seals and walrus and hike through rolling hills to secluded waterfalls and lakes. At Digges Island we find rocky cliffs ideal for seabirds. We end with Akpatok Island and Lower Savage Islands which are known for polar bear and walrus, and enjoy some great Zodiac cruises before disembarking at Iqaluit.
