Polar Tours

Did you know you can paddle through Polar? One can’t get any closer to the wilderness than that. With penguins, polar bears, walrus, whales, belugas and carabous, it is hard to stop sounding like a poetry book. Rather go there and live in a fairytale of snow, icebergs, and the last ice area. Yes, the ice is disappearing, and so is the wildlife. So you need to go soon and go in a group because it’s cold, very cold. You can help prevent conservation efforts by travelling there and staying a while to explore this vast continent of changing climates and find out how you can help save the Umky (polar bear) and their babies. Do I hear violins? No, in the arctic they play drums to appease the spirits or welcome visitors, like you.

  • Located 800 km inside the Arctic Circle, right on the Northwest Passage, the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge qualifies as the world’s northernmost safari resort. This pristine tract of wilderness – replete with riverways, canyons and waterfalls – are incredibly scenic in themselves, but it’s the flora and fauna here that are the real highlight. Beluga whales romp about in the waters, polar bears and musk ox plod about the land and gulls, falcons and snow geese scour the skies. In between outings and lectures dedicated to the wildlife, there are opportunities to careen around in an all-terrain vehicle, kayak among icebergs, hike through canyons and whitewater raft down the swiftly flowing Cunningham River. If it’s a mix of animals and activity you’re after, look no further.

  • Sign up for a journey to the literal ends of the earth on an oceanic adventure into Canada’s High Arctic. Setting out from the Canadian capital of Ottawa, this 18-day voyage aboard the Kapitan Khlebnikov will take you along Greenland’s rarely travelled western coast, across Baffin Bay and up into Tanquary Fjord before finishing in Resolute, Nunavut. Every day and every league of the way you’ll be encountering spectacles few people in the world are ever privy to. Watch icebergs being borne in Ilullssat. See remnants of Greenland’s colonial era in the open-air museum of Upernavik. Feel dense layers of sea-ice being crunched under your vessel’s prow. Set out in search of polar bear and walrus by Zodiac and hover over petrified forests in Ellesmere Island. Adventures of this make don’t come around too often. Will you heed the call?

  • If there’s one place you can really feel on top of the world, the North Pole is it. Few people ever have the surreal experience of seeing the world from its northernmost point. This is one trip with a distinct goal, and the feeling of accomplishing such a rare feat is a huge rush. Witness slow-moving ice, silent, white landscapes and marvel at the heroism of those who came before you. It’s a tough voyage, but your transport is well equipped for the mission – 50 Years of Victory is the most powerful icebreaker ship in the world. Be awed as the mighty vessel crushes through ice three m thick, paving your way through the most northern reaches of the Arctic Ocean. And when it’s time to head back home, wind down with a visit to Franz Joseph Land, where a bounty of wildlife and striking natural scenery awaits.
