Join Wildland Adventures’ Polar Program Director, Sherry Howland, as we embark on a polar expedition up the east coast of Canada’s Baffin Island exploring deep fjords, soaring mountains, and immense glacial systems spawning brilliant blue icebergs. Voyaging deep into this polar frontier these ice-strengthened expedition vessels access some of Earth’s most remote national parks and wildlife habitat. Naturalist guides and crew accompany you on hikes, zodiacs, and kayaking in small inlets to fully experience this stunning coastal wilderness habitat where narwhals, whales, and walrus are plentiful, seabird colonies find refuge, and polar bears roam wild. Visits to remote Inuit communities reveal the traditional way of life in the Arctic tundra and how these indigenous cultures are adapting to encroaching modern life. Following in the wake of early explorers, the expedition goes ashore at former Hudson’s Bay Company sites, Royal Canadian Mounted Police outposts, and visits Beechey Island, the final resting place for on the ill-fated Franklin Expedition of 1845-46. Onboard specialists in a variety of disciplines offer their insights and observations in daily onboard briefings and leading shore excursions. A team of professional photographers are on hand to document your adventure and counsel passengers who seek assistance to improve their photographic skills.
