We’ve been to The Canadian Arctic several times, and let’s state the obvious first, it is huge.
Stretching from Northern Canada way above the North American continent it offers an endless paradise of wilderness.
With more than 30,000 islands, including three of the world’s largest, you really do feel like you’re in another world.
We love it’s scenery, history and mystery, and of course it’s abundant wildlife.
The Canadian Arctic is home to more polar bears than any other Arctic region.
Cruising along the ice floes, and hiking on shore are exciting indeed, as Rose discovered in August.
She’ll be very happy to tell you about being stalked by a polar bear, and consequently being ‘beared’ off the beach.
Whales of all sizes glide through the waters, while wolves, foxes, muskox and seabirds share the shores and skies.
EXPLORING IS WILD
Mountains and tundra stretch to the horizon and exploring onshore is a constant discovery.
You can visit rarely seen ancient settlements and take extended hikes exploring the scenery.
Remote beaches are strewn with bones, relics and fossils, reminding us of exploration and survival in these barren lands.
THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE.
Tales of brave explorers, mysterious disappearances, and the quest to find “The Northwest Passage” fill the history books, probably with more questions than answers.
The lucrative trading route linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans brought men here for over 4 centuries, with many dying, and more dying trying to find them.
The most noteworthy, and mysterious is Sir John Franklin’s 1845 expedition. He sailed from London with high hopes and confidence, but was never seen again.
His lead ship, The Erebus, was finally found 2014 adding even more questions to the mystery.
The Canadian Arctic is wonderfully rich and diverse, area to visit, for boundless landscapes, thriving wildlife, and thousands of years of human settlement.
