Inuit communities

More than 1000 kilometres from the Arctic Circle, we explore the Upernavik region, the small uninhabited island of Tugtutog and the remote village of Kullorsuaq.  The remoteness has left well preserved archaeological treasures, uncovering ancient peat houses from the Thule civilisation.

Crossing Baffin Bay

Not navigable for most of the year due to ice cover and numerous icebergs, part of Baffin Bay, known as the North Water, opens up in the summer when the temperatures are around 4-5oC.  Keep watch for the elusive beluga whales and narwhals, while passing icebergs provide the perfect opportunity to spot harp seals and bearded seals.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7
Pond Inlet, Canada

On Baffin Island, located at the mouth of the famous Northwest Passage, there is a small Inuit settlement at the very bounds of infinity.  Pond Inlet or Mittimatilik meaning ‘where the landing place is’, in the Inuit language, it is the major centre of Inuit art and has the largest population of artists per capita.  Surrounded by spectacular snow-capped mountains, fjords and glaciers, your exploration of Pond Inlet will leave long lasting memories.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8
Across the Northwest Passage

Venturing into the Northwest Passage, navigating delicately through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, Scenic Eclipse will take you through this once impassable route. Connecting the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, this region is remote and isolated and very few have had the option to travel here. From John Cabot to James Cook and John Franklin, many explorers set out to discover this fabled route and failed, now you can go further than they were ever able to.

Due to the extraordinary nature of the region, the sailing and expedition schedule is flexible. Your experienced Captain and Discovery Leader will carefully plan each day’s activities based on the conditions.

Our cruises include a vast range of tailored discovery excursions and getting out into the big wild will be a highlight. Daily excursions will include exploration by Zodiacs and kayaks, shore landings, meeting local communities and hiking across the landscapes. There will be many opportunities for wildlife spotting and marine species abound.  Each day the Discovery Team will have a schedule of activities so that even when you’re on board waiting for the next discovery excursion you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied from entertaining presentations to documentaries and more.  There will be time for you to relax in your suite, watch the live streaming on your TV from the exterior cameras, and tempt your palate as you explore the extensive range of dining options.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
