High Arctic explorer | 14 days
Combine nature and wildlife with the history of Canadian exploration in the Arctic. From Resolute we visit a number of Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) shoreline outposts, retracing some of the patrols of the first vessel to circumnavigate North America, the St Roch. There’s great interest for wildlife lovers with a visit to Bylot Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary and frequent sightings of seals, beluga whale and narwhal. Expert guides accompany you on frequent shore landings. Marvel at the musk ox, caribou and polar bear and the sweeping glaciers and skies that go on forever.

“Your service was truly exceptional! We have traveled a lot and tried the services of several companies (both in the UK and the US) and you rank right up there at the top (and we have used some good ones). Your responsiveness was very much appreciated, particularly when the 2014 trip was cancelled. This level of personal service really makes a difference. This was one of the best trips we have taken - one of those that was a revelation and will always be remembered (like our first trip to see the wildlife in Southern Africa, for example). And your service was first rate - we are so glad that we chose you to organize our trip. We would be happy to be a reference/resource for you with any future travelers (particularly from North America) if you would ever want us to.”Richard and Christine Holdrup, Arctic Explorer
“Thank you for your welcome home. The holiday was absolutely brilliant. I have been expedition cruising since 1992 and this was the BEST of them all. The staff were so careful, watchful and caring. They were always available and collectively so funny. It was just great. Now, so was all your organising – thank you for all your help.”Margaret Dykes, Into the Northwest Passage
