Itinerary

These itineraries may be subject to change without notice due to weather, ice, and sea conditions

  • Day 1
    Kangerlussuaq

    Kangerlussuaq is a former US Air Force base and Greenland’s primary flight hub. Here we will be bused along Greenland’s longest road—less than twenty kilometres—to the port. Zodiacs will be waiting to transfer us to the Ocean Endeavour.

    Sondre Stromfjord is one of the longest fjords in the world and boasts 168 kilometres of superb scenery. We begin our adventure by sailing down this dramatic fjord, crossing the Arctic Circle as we go.

    Muskox 1
  • Day 2
    Qeqqata Kommunia

    The west Greenland coastline is a rich mixture of fishing communities, many islands and complex coastal waterways. The waters are relatively warm here, due to the West Greenland Current and the sub-Arctic location. This makes for lusher vegetation.

    As we enter the Arctic autumn, the tundra foliage will be turning colours beautifully. We will be making an expedition stop here to explore the wild landscape of Greenland.

    Glacier Zodiac 01
  • Day 3
    Nuuk

    Welcome to Nuuk, the capital of Greenland and one of the world’s northernmost capitals. The old harbour region of town includes many buildings dating from the Danish colonial days. The modern downtown core includes shopping, cafes, and restaurants—as well as public institutions with a European flair.

    The Greenland National Museum is one of Nuuk’s many outstanding features; the world-famous Qilakitsoq mummies are housed here. The museum’s exhibits also offer in-depth information about colonial, Norse, and Inuit presence in Greenland—a must-see.

    Nuuk 01
  • Day 4
    At Sea – Davis Strait

    Sailing ever-westward, like the Vikings, we cross the Davis Strait—the mouth of the Northwest Passage. Narrower and shallower than Baffin Bay to the north, Davis Strait is a haven for marine mammals and seabirds. We’ll be on the watch!

    Our presentation schedule will be a flurry of learning opportunities. We’ll immerse ourselves in the archaeology, history, and culture of Greenland, Nunavik, Nunatsiavut, Labrador, and Newfoundland.

    Davis Strait Sunset 03
  • Day 5
    Kangiqsualujjuaq (George River)

    We make landfall on the Arctic coast of Québec’s Inuit region, Nunavik. Twenty-five kilometres upstream from Ungava Bay lies the Inuit community of Kangiqsualujjuaq. The tides here are nearly a match for those of the Bay of Fundy.

    Arctic flora thrives in the protected valley. The George River caribou herd, which is in critical decline, has its calving grounds nearby. A community welcome here gives us a chance to mingle with local folks and explore the hamlet.

    Kangiqsualujjuaq George River 2
  • Day 6–8
    Torngat Mountains National Park

    Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found in Torngat Mountains National Park. Here, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be our guides in their spiritual homeland.

    Polar bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles are among the species we hope to spot on land. We’ll also be on the lookout for marine mammals! We’ll spend our time on guided hikes, searching for wildlife, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising.

    Torngat Mountains National Park 5
  • Day 9
    Hebron

    This haunting site preserves a Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s. The mission was abandoned in 1959, forcing the relocation of the Inuit who resided there. In 2005, Newfoundland & Labrador issued an apology to people affected by the relocations.

    Former Hebron residents and their kin continue to visit the site, and to hunt and fish nearby. With their help, some of Hebron’s buildings are now being repurposed as a cultural interpretation centre.

    Hebron 4
  • Day 10
    Nain

    The administrative capital of Nunatsiavut, Nain is the nothernmost community in Labrador. A busy harbour in a gorgeous location is the centre of this bustling village. We’ll visit the beautiful Moravian Church and the Nunatsiavut Building.

    Adventure Canada has many close ties here. Working with local experts, we pioneered expedition cruising in Nunatsiavut. We always enjoy a warm cultural welcome. Expect music, food, and handicrafts at this dynamic visit.

    Nain Church
  • Day 11–12
    The Labrador Coast

    Labrador’s coast in this region is much more varied than you might expect. Here we find coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, and string bog—as well as the Akami-Uapishkᵁ-KakKasuak-Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve.

    Whale Caplan
  • Day 13
    L’Anse aux Meadows

    L’Anse aux Meadows is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Historic site. The archaeological remains found here in 1960 date to approximately 1000 AD.

    Amazingly, the location of the ruins was first established by a close reading of the Viking sagas. Today, a superb interpretive centre and reconstructions of the several Norse-style sod buildings make L’Anse aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland.

    L Anse Aux Meadows 05
  • Day 14
    Terra Nova National Park

    Terra Nova National Park’s amazing natural resources and location have attracted people for at least five thousand years prior to its establishment as a park in 1957. Newman Sound’s unique interaction between the Atlantic Ocean and the boreal forest have made it a hotbed of activity; in the twentieth century, the land that is now encompassed by the park contained several communities with bustling sawmills.

    Terra Nova National Park 05
  • Day 15
    St. John’s, NL

    Sailing into the port of St. John’s has to be experienced to be believed. Signal Hill keeps watch as we take on our pilot and enter the world-famous Narrows. The charming houses of The Battery are always a hit with shutterbugs.

    The bustling capital city of Newfoundland & Labrador makes a spectacular backdrop. High on the hill sits The Rooms, a cultural museum dedicated to more than five hundred years of history surrounding St. John’s harbour.

What People are Saying

Traveled to Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia

We had a fabulous time. The hotels were great as were the tours. We enjoyed the private guides best. Every one of our private guides was fantastic and made sure that we got to do what we (Andy!) wanted to do. Our guide in Arashiyama changed things around so that Andy could go to the Monkey Park, which was not on our original itinerary, but something he decided he wanted to do. She even climbed the mountain with him after settling me in a coffee shop with a cup of coffee!! Summer, our guide in Shanghai, was fantastic, and even helped get us checked in at the airport when we left. The tours themselves were wonderful and we got a good taste of the cities we visited. Both of us are planning on returning to Japan and China again sometime in the future and I will certainly keep you in mind when the time comes. By the way, the tip that we probably appreciated the most was to fly premium economy. I don't know if we would have survived that trip if we hadn't!!

Thanks for your help!!
Kristi
