Come aboard the Le Boreal for a 14-day polar expedition from Kangerlussuaq to Quebec. Discover the Canadian Arctic, including Akpatok Island, home to polar bears. Heading south towards Quebec, the surprising landscapes of the Northern extremity of Labrador unfold before you to reveal steep mountain ranges with abrupt precipices and majestic fjords, in the heart of Torngat Mountains National Park. Sail in search of whales in the Saguenay Fjord.

Akpatok

Nestled into Ungava Bay, which separates Nunavik from Baffin Island, Akpatok is an inhabited island whose cliffs soar to more than 200 m in height and stand proud against the opaque, milky waters of the bay. The location is startlingly impressive, animated by the swoops and cries of the thousands of migratory Arctic birds. It’s also one of the walrus’s favourite haunts and a traditional hunting ground for local Inuit.

Here is an excerpt from a naturalist guide, in summer 2011: "At the base of the cliff which forms a natural border for Akpatok, the first bear appeared, like an actor coming onto a stage and, in the most theatrical manner, he struck a pose for the zoom lenses of the watching cameras. A more modest female and her cub strolled across the landscape... nearby, the prehistoric-looking musk appear on their dainty legs and at the cliff tops, hundreds of thousands of guillemots provide an unexpected ‘fireworks’ display, fizzing about the skies and calling wildly."

Landings will depend on weather conditions, position of ice and winds and the state of the sea. These can force a change of plans at any time.

The final route will be confirmed by the Captain of the ship, who will take into account the touristic quality of the sites and above all, the safety of the passengers.
