Tour Itinerary

Join an expert expedition crew as you traverse Canada's Northwest Passage on a 12-day Arctic expedition. Scour the Arctic waters for narwhals, and spot polar bears, musk oxen and caribou among the icy tundra, floating icebergs and granite mountains of Canada's northernmost inlets. Have the chance to embark on included helicopter experiences to areas once too remote to explore, and let your crew take you past tiny Inuit communities and historical sites. With a flexible itinerary to account for weather and ice conditions and a fully equipped vessel with fitness centre, spa, ocean view sauna and range of cabin options, take a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to an incredibly remote and stunningly serene section of the world.

Day 1: Toronto
Welcome to Toronto – your gateway to the Canadian High Arctic and the starting point of your Peregrine adventure. Make your way to tonight’s accommodation, where you’ll find a welcome letter outlining the departure information for your chartered flight tomorrow. If you wish, meet an expedition representative in the hotel lobby this evening who will answer any of your questions. Otherwise, you are free to explore Toronto today and this evening. Please note that tonight’s accommodation is likely located near Toronto Airport to allow for a seamless departure tomorrow.

Day 2: Resolute – Embarkation Day
Take an included transfer this morning to the airport to board a charter flight bound for Resolute – one of Canada’s northernmost communities. The timing of this flight will most likely be in the morning; the exact details will be noted in your welcome letter. Upon arrival in Resolute, you may have an hour or two to explore this tiny hamlet before transferring to your expedition vessel by Zodiac or helicopter. Once on board, familiarise yourself with the ship’s facilities and meet your expedition crew.

Day 3-10: Canadian High Arctic
The next week is dedicated to exploring the remote islands of the Canadian High Arctic, including Axel Heiberg Island and the rarely visited Ellesmere Island – situated nearly at the top of the globe. While it isn’t possible to confirm exact landing sites in advance, you can expect daily Zodiac cruising, guided land excursions, a comprehensive onboard lecture program, community visits and several wildlife viewing opportunities. In between all of this, let your expert crew take you on an adventure like no other, as they will take into account weather and ice conditions to prepare an itinerary that captures all of the region’s highlights. Conditions permitting, you will also have access to the vessel’s state-of-the-art twin-engine helicopters for scenic flights as well as heli-landings, getting you to places that could otherwise not be accessed. While no two days are the same, you can expect to admire tundra flora, scour the skies for rare bird species flying overhead, spot the remains of a centuries’ old hut and go in search of walrus and polar bears in their remote natural habitats. After your full days of exploration, retire to your comfortable stateroom and modern expedition vessel equipped with restaurant, bar and lounge areas, a fitness centre, spa and sauna.

Day 11: Resolute – Disembarkation Day – Toronto
Bid your expedition crew a warm farewell as you disembark and transfer to Resolute Airport for your included flight back to Toronto. Upon arrival in Toronto, transfer with your group to your post-expedition accommodation and choose either to relax or explore the city.

Day 12: Toronto
With no activities included for today, you are free to depart the accommodation at any time. If you would like to spend more time in Toronto, we’ll be happy to organise additional accommodation (subject to availability).

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
