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. Humans 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 Accommodations page for details on the ships that made the grade!
