Experience a destination that few ever have the chance to explore: the floe edge of Admiralty Inlet, at the north end of Baffin Island in Canada’s Arctic. Spring and summer are fleeting in this land of mountains and fiords, but during this brief window wondrous life abounds in the 24-hour sun. 

Visit a destination that few people get to explore, the North Baffin, 700 km (435 miles) north of the Arctic Circle. In this magical land of ice and light, life abounds in the arctic spring and summer. The beginning of July brings a profusion of wildflowers as the arctic plants look to set seed quickly in this all too brief summer. Take in the explosion of colour on the tundra as you find many species of arctic flowers and learn about the incredible survival strategies they use to live in this unforgiving northern climate.

Although the sun disappears in November and doesn’t rise again for three months it is never completely dark here. However, in the three weeks around the Winter Solstice there is very little light. In the high Arctic this is a traditional time for people to come together, play games, sing, dance, and celebrate life. Join the Inuit community of Arctic Bay as they bring in the New Year.
