Witness the impressive wildlife of the pristine Baffin Island, home to polar bears, musk ox, seals and narwhals, fjords and glaciers, and Arctic nature unlike anything else in the world. Because of Baffin Island's central location in Canada, many of the tours that cross through here also visit Greenland or transverse the entire Northwest Passage, just like explorer John Franklin did before mysteriously vanishing when his ship became ice-locked. The true explorers will delight in the opportunities to kayak or dive in these frigid waters for the rare chance to see the gargantuan bottoms of the icebergs, coldwater jellyfish, and the polar bears that love to go for relaxing swims here. Or, you can harness your inner Innuit as you drive a traditional sled or explore the tundra by snowmobile. Contact us to start planning.
