Narwhal and Polar Bear Safari

Camp on the floe edge for fantastic Narwhal and Polar Bear encounters | 11 days

Experience the classic spring floe edge and view polar bears, narwhal and icebergs under the midnight sun. Here at the northern reaches of Baffin Island, the sea ice meets the open water, and marine mammals and other wildlife congregate.

Fly in over Sirmilik National Park and its stunning landscape of towering granite cliffs, glaciers and icebergs. Stay at our Tented Safari Camp on an Arctic beach with views of Bylot Island and access to the national park and the world-renowned floe edge of Lancaster Sound. Guided by Inuit, your small group will journey to spot narwhal, seabirds, polar bears and seal. You may also see beluga and bowhead whales.

This is possibly the best place in the Arctic for narwhal watching with added polar bear viewing.
