King of the Arctic
Explore the floe edge by boat, in the spectacular Northern environment of Foxe Basin that is brimming with electric blue pack-ice formations and magnificent wildlife. From the awe-inspiring scenery to sightings of bowhead whales as they swim past the boat, walrus watching as they bask in the sun and polar bears on nearby pack ice, there are incredible wonders to see at every angle.
Traditional Whale Camp Experience
In this tour you will get to experience the Arctic Ocean like never seen before. Starting in Tuktoyaktuk, you will board your boat with your local guide and venture out on the Arctic Ocean for a one hour boat tour to our traditional whaling camp. Once arriving at our whale camp you will learn about the history and culture of this region from your local guide, try locally harvested food, play traditional games, and immerse yourself in the life on the Arctic Ocean. Once spending about 2.5 hours here you will return by boat back to Tuktoyaktuk.
Floe Edge Basecamp
From the community of Pond Inlet, we will travel by snowmobile and “Qamutik” (wooden sled) towards the floe edge - an area known as the "line of life". Guided by highly-qualified Black Feather guides, as well as Inuit guides, ice conditions and weather will determine our exact route. Once a suitable area has been chosen, a comfortable base camp will be created. The base camp will serve as a hub for the expedition and the various activities that will be undertaken.
Summer Arctic Discovery
A kayaking adventure that will meet all your expectations! Set off in the company of your guide for a full weekend of sea kayaking. Two days of kayaking and a night sleeping in a tent. Depending on your skill level, your guide may decide to set up camp closer to one of our fully equipped cabins, or sleep in a tent wherever the wind blows you.
