Curious about traveling to the Arctic?

Polar bears hunt on the sea ice, playful beluga whales swim nearby, icebergs the size of a skyscraper, the Northern Lights, and Inuit art and culture stretch back millennia. This is the Arctic. It’s a transformative place that you’ll remember forever.

The Arctic is one of my favorite places to explore. I’ve been traveling there for nearly a decade and have now become an expedition guide. I’ve completed over a dozen polar expeditions, and I’m passionate about sharing this part of the world with other like-minded travelers. A new path for me is helping people join the perfect voyage for them. I’ll even be a guide on many of the expeditions below – come along with me!

I’m also offering you guys an exclusive discount: an exclusive $250 voucher if you book through me. Spots are now available, and you’re first in line! Don’t miss out.

Greenland and Canada: High Arctic Explorer

This trip offers a taste of everything Arctic. We explore Tallurutiup Imanga, one of the largest marine protected areas in Canada and home to iconic Arctic wildlife. Visiting some of the Inuit communities of Greenland and Canada is a highlight for many passengers and gives a real glimpse of what life in the Arctic is like today.

We dip our toes into the Northwest Passage and explore some of the famous sites from Arctic exploration, like Beechey Island, where some of the first evidence of what happened to the ill-fated Franklin expedition was discovered.

The Northwest Passage

On the Into the Northwest Passage trip, you tend to experience more birds, botany, and biodiversity as it’s still the end of summer. It also follows more closely the path of the early Arctic explorers searching for the Northwest Passage.

Out of the Northwest Passage reaches the highest latitude, visiting Grise Fjord, the most northerly community in Canada. Early autumn means a great time to look for the Northern Lights as well as the tundra turning red and gold as the first snows begin to fall in the mountains.
