Travel across the Arctic Sea from Greenland to Canada, experiencing stark natural beauty, Inuit art and culture, and rich history dating back to 2200 BC. Starting from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, we will travel down the stark yet serene Evighedsfjord to the Evigheids Glacier and south to Greenland’s capital of Nuuk before crossing the Arctic Sea to land in Canada. We will explore the culturally rich Iqaluit, which is bursting with Inuit art, from the museum, to the streets, to the interior of a municipal building. We will search for polar bears at Akpatok Island during one of several Zodiac cruises and witness the unforgiving landscape of the Tablelands at Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site formed by glaciers and continents clashing together ages ago. This voyage is steeped in history, including a visit to the first site of European settlement (1000 AD) in L’Anse aux Meadows and the 15th century Qilakitsoq mummies in Nuuk. We will cruise scenic passages and search for walrus, polar bear and multiple whale species at various places along the way. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of these starkly beautiful locations from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team. If luck is on your side, the Northern Lights will provide bucket list evening entertainment.
