The Inuit people of the Canadian Arctic are an essential part of Canada’s national and cultural identity. Meet them and enjoy thrilling new wildlife experiences where eagles soar and the caribou roam.
Vast and sparsely populated, Nunavut forms most of the Canadian Arctic’s archipelago. Its tundra-clad islands with their remote villages and archaeological sites are accessible only by plane or boat. Iconic narwhal and beluga whale thrive in its waters.
Baffin Island and Hudson Bay offer exceptional chances to get close to polar bear. Not only are the Northwest Territories home to vast numbers of caribou, but also wolves, wolverine, foxes, grizzly and black bears and a wide variety of birdlife.
