Our Canadian Arctic Northwest Passage birding and wildlife cruise traverses one of the world’s most historic and elusive sea routes, linking the vast Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through Canada’s High Arctic area. Join us as we sail in comfort through the same regions first explored by the intrepid Barrow, Parry and Franklin almost a century ago. Herds of Walrus, rafts of seals, pods of whales, pre-historic looking Musk Ox and the mighty Polar Bear are all targets on this fantastic historical and wildlife extravaganza. The Canadian Arctic is also host to numerous special birds, including the immaculate Ivory Gull, lovely King Eider, Gyrfalcon, Snowy Owl and Snow Bunting, to name just a few, while the scenery is simply spectacular!
