      Toronto

      Welcome to Toronto – the gateway to your Arctic expedition. You are free to arrive at any time today and independently transfer to your included pre-trip accommodation. On arrival at the hotel, you'll receive a welcome letter outlining the departure information for the following day’s charter flight to Greenland. An expedition representative will be available in the lobby this evening to answer any questions you may have.

      Kangerlussuaq – Embarkation Day

      After breakfast, transfer to Toronto Airport and board your charter flight to Kangerlussuaq – a small seaside community on Greenland’s west coast. Enjoy your first Zodiac ride as you transfer from shore to ship. Once on board, settle into your cabin and take in your new surroundings.

      West Greenland

      For the next couple of days, your vessel will hug the coastline and you will begin exploring. Cruise around remote settlements of Greenland including Maniitsoq – an archipelago broken by natural canals, and Nuuk – the Greenlandic capital. Here, explore the Hans Egede church and statue, named for the missionary who established the settlement in 1728. You may also enjoy visits to the Greenland National Museum, Nuuk Art Museum or Katuaq Cultural Centre. Marvel in your picturesque surroundings as you explore one of the world’s most remote capital cities.

      At Sea

      Cruise away from Greenland’s shores as you traverse the Davis Strait in pursuit of the Canadian Arctic. During this time, consider attending a series of onboard lectures and programs presented by your expert crew, preparing you for the Arctic adventures that lie ahead. You may also like to take advantage of the ship’s fully equipped fitness centre and spa facilities.

      Canadian High Arctic

      Today, commence almost ten days of exploration in Canada’s High Arctic, following in the footsteps of explorers past. Your expedition crew will have a tentative itinerary set; however, they will take into account weather, sea and ice conditions to maximise the voyage’s shore landings and wildlife-spotting opportunities. Your course is set for the picturesque Inuit hamlet of Pangnirtung, nestled beneath the peaks of Mt Duval. Here, you can learn about traditional lithographs and tapestries from local craftspeople. Your vessel will traverse the Davis Strait and Baffin Bay north along the east coast of Baffin Island, making use of the ship’s Zodiac and helicopter fleet for cruising, sightseeing and shore visits. Continue onwards to the Northwest Passage, stopping via Inuit communities, ancient Thule remains, reminders of past voyages, and a dazzling array of natural wonders. Expect to cruise pass pods of bowhead and narwhal whales and the soaring mountains of the region’s fjords, as well as glaciers, icebergs, and majestic mountain sites. Keep your eyes peeled for rare bird and polar bear sightings. Your journey will be enhanced with hiking and kayaking opportunities, plus time to simply relax on deck and soak in the purity of the landscape.

      Resolute – Disembarkation Day – Toronto

      This morning, your ship will cruise towards Resolute, where you will disembark. On land, transfer to the airport and take your included charter flight back to Toronto, then take a group transfer to your accommodation for the evening.

      Toronto

      Your Greenland and Canadian High Arctic adventure comes to an end this morning, with no other activities planned. You are free to make your way to Toronto Airport for onward connections or continue to explore Toronto independently.
