Canada’s Remote Arctic – Northwest Passage to Ellesemere and Axel Heiberg Islands

Coburn, Prince Leopold and Devon Islands, RCMP outposts, history and ice | 13 days

This rare itinerary is intent on reaching Canada’s most northerly islands: Axel Heiberg Island and rarely visited Ellesmere Island, at the top of the world – transiting famous Hell Gate. We hope to fly up to explore the Devon ice cap, one of the Canada’s largest. History buffs may pay their respects to the ill-fated 1845–46 Franklin expedition at gravesites on Beechey Island.  Wildlife options include sea mammals, polar bears, muskox, and possibly even the elusive arctic wolf.
