A private plane fly-in safari to the outer reaches of northern Baffin Island and one of the best places to spot the elusive narwhal and of course the polar bear.  Based on the African tented camp this Arctic ‘under canvas’ experience is perfect for all members of the family.  You will be guided by local Inuit who are at one with this rugged landscape and the wildlife it offers.  It is the perfect area to spot whales, beluga and bowhead, and the abundance of sea birds are a birder’s dream.  Activities, kayaking, snorkelling and snow mobile opportunities will provide an Arctic safari like no other. This is the classic Arctic adventure under the glorious midnight sun yet with the comfort of a premium camp that provides gourmet food and superb comfort.

Arrive in Ottawa a day earlier to the departure. Today you will fly from Ottawa to Pond Inlet. Once there, in small groups, a private plane will take you to the camp. Have your cameras ready for stunning aerial views of the vast Arctic landscapes, including dramatic mountains and icebergs in Sirmilik National Park.

Observe prolific wildlife and spectacular Arctic landscapes. In small groups, take day trips in the area and engage in a variety of activities both on land, such as guided hikes, and at the floe edge. Snorkel and kayak amongst sea ice and possibly within the presence of whales.

One of the greatest highlights for many guests on this safari is the opportunity to observe a variety of Arctic wildlife in their natural habitat, including narwhal, beluga, bowhead whales, seals, and polar bears. Migratory birds are also in abundance.

Delve into the Inuit culture on a journey to traditional Inuit hunting grounds, by qamutik and snowmobile.

After another full day enjoying the High Arctic wilderness, fly directly out of camp to Pond Inlet in groups of eight. Explore the town at your leisure and spend your final night in a hotel.
