Canadian Arctic Holidays
The Arctic North of Canada is a fairy tale place of pioneer spirit, polar bears, gold prospectors, northern lights, migrating beluga whales and permanent sunny days; where the seemingly impossible comes to life before your eyes. With very sparse human settlement, the tundra of the region comes alive during the summer months when it is carpeted with colourful flowers and the wildlife of the region, of which the indisputable star is the King of the Arctic, emerges. Arctic Canada is defined as the area north of the Arctic Circle, which constitutes the expansive wilderness of the provinces of Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
Arctic Canada has just 100,000 inhabitants and approximately 60% of the indigenous Inuit community live in this region.
It’s not just the bears here, but you can also fine eider ducks, murres, kittewakes, Arctic fox, moose, caribou, snowy owls and much more.
- Arctic Photography: taking photos in such bright light can be difficult (we know from experience), we have specialist safaris that will help you get the best photos possible from your experience with our trained expert photographers.
- Explore Ice Formations: explore some of the most impressive ice formations on the planet on foot under the midnight sun.
- Polar Bear Cubs Trips: see polar bear cubs emerging from their dens for the very first time with their mothers. This trip is a sell-out every year, with just one departure!
- Polar Bear Tracking: track these huge marine mammals on foot, from a cosy lodge or even live amongst them on the tundra.
- Whale Watching: not only can you see belugas, narwhals and more, but you can actually swim with them on some of our specialist safaris.
