Why you'll love this trip
  • Take an adventure aboard the Ocean Endeavour, where you’ll be guided by experts on daily Zodiac excursions, take in-depth workshops and presentations, and enrich your understanding of this complex corner of the world.
  • Hike through the expansive Gros Morne National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage site in Newfoundland – and explore the Tablelands where the mineral-rich rocks are an eerie example of what lies beneath the Earth’s crust.
  • Learn about Inuit history, culture and way of life in Nain and Hebron and take the unique opportunity to explore their communities with local guides who have local insight.
  • Spend four days exploring the mountainous tundra of Torngat Mountains National Park, where some of Canada’s highest peaks can be found. Visit archaeological sites and look out for polar bears, black bears and falcons.
  • Sail through Hudson Strait and look out for marine mammals, whales, seals, polar bears, walruses and seabirds in the Arctic waters.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Temperatures in the Arctic can be freezing. It can also get surprisingly warm when the sun comes out or with increased physical activity. It’s best to dress in layers when you journey outside. You’ll be provided with waterproof boots that are sturdy and warm. Please see the trip notes for information about what to bring.
  • Polar bears are one of the most incredible animals on the planet but are also powerful predators with little fear of humans. Therefore, knowing the guidelines surrounding any contact with polar bears is necessary. Follow your leader’s instructions and do not stray from your group – your leader carries equipment to protect you. We may need to adjust our plans to visit alternate Arctic landing sites.
  • Weather and sea ice play a pivotal part in this adventure, and although there’s an itinerary in place, there are no guarantees that you’ll be able to do everything planned. Flexibility and openness to embracing the unexpected are important in expedition travel, especially in remote areas.
