Greenland & the Canadian Arctic

Discover Stunning Icescapes & Native Cultures Along Baffin Bay & Beyond
Canada's High Arctic and the west coast of Greenland offer some of the most dramatic glaciated landscapes on the planet. More than 35,000 islands comprise the Canadian Arctic archipelago alone. This austere realm that surrounds Hudson Bay and Baffin Bay, encased in shifting polar pack ice and dominated by imposing peaks, is nonetheless home to abundant wildlife. Depending on your ship's itinerary, you may encounter polar bears, whales, seals and colonies of seabirds, including whimsical puffins. Human inhabitants have also thrived here for millennia, and many Inuit continue traditional subsistence ways in a rapidly changing Arctic. Ports of call at small indigenous communities offer authentic personal encounters and insight into old and new lifestyles. Follow in the wake of legendary seafaring explorers aboard an expedition cruise to the Far North's most arresting destinations.

 Natural Habitat Adventures offers departures aboard a carefully chosen selection of independently operated small ships. Please visit the Ships page for details on the ships that made the grade! 
We recognize that different people have different tastes and budgets, so we provide a wide variety of vessels, itineraries and price options for independent travelers that are ensured to suit your needs. Our experienced Adventure Specialists are unbiased and have collectively embarked on a great number of Arctic expedition cruises. Allow us to help you explore the many options to determine which Arctic cruise is right for you. Call us at 1-800-543-8917.
