15 Days


Take a hike in Torngat Mountains National Park
Marvel at the gorgeous fjords, landscapes ablaze with autumn colours, and wonderful wildlife sighting opportunities, including the possibility of both polar and black bears.
Travel to one of the least-visited coastlines in the country—the Torngats are simply unbeatable!
Some of the tallest mountains in Canada east of the Rockies form the backdrop to this national park, the only one initiated and staffed entirely by Inuit.

Cross the Arctic Circle
Enjoy the stunning mountain scenery of Kangerlussuaq Fjord (Søndre Strømfjord) as you sail south from Kangerlussuaq to Baffin Bay.
At 190 kilometres in length, this incredible waterway showcases some of Greenland’s finest scenery.
Enjoy your special moment of crossing the Arctic Circle, catch a glimpse of the Greenland ice cap, and watch for Northern Lights above the mountain peaks.

Visit Nuuk, Greenland’s intriguing capital
Take your time to wander the city of Nuuk, which offers a fascinating glimpse into Greenland’s history—and future.
Enjoy the bustle of activity at the art galleries, cafés, and restaurants that possess a strong Scandinavian influence in their design, architecture, and flavours.
Look a little closer and you will see modern Inuit artworks and historic buildings from the whaling era dotting the streets, too.
Be sure to visit the excellent museum, offering a deep dive into the fascinating history and culture of Greenland.

Enjoy a warm Inuit welcome in Nain, capital of Nunatsiavut
Journey to lovely Labrador, where few have had the pleasure of going; fewer still have carried onwards to Nunatsiavut, the Inuit region of which Nain is the administrative capital.
Stop in at the historic Moravian church, enjoy the vibrant musical tradition, and peruse plenty of art and handicrafts that await you.

Visit the restored Viking archaeological site at L’Anse aux Meadows
Travel back in time to the only authenticated Norse archeological site in all of North America, L’Anse aux Meadows—a must-see!
Learn more about the Viking settlement here, first discovered in the 1960s and now reconstructed, with a fabulous interpretation centre and wonderful guides in period costume who bring Viking history to life.

⦁ Cross the Arctic Circle
Begin your journey by sailing out of Kangerlussuaq Fjord (Søndre Strømfjord), a 190-kilometre-long fjord surrounded by mountains and glaciers. Cross the Arctic Circle on your way and spend time on deck watching for aurora borealis.
Kangerlussuaq, the settlement at the head of the fjord, is a former US Air Force base.
After your charter flight from Toronto, ON, you’ll transfer to the ship by Zodiac.

Take a Zodiac Cruise at the Foot of a Glacier
Kangerlussuatsiaq means “the rather big fjord” in Greenlandic, while the Danish name Evighedsfjorden translates to “the fjord of eternity,” underscoring its vastness and seemingly never-ending nature.
See why Kangerlussuatsiaq Fjord lives up to its name and marvel at this complex coastal waterway that includes calving glaciers, sheer bird cliffs, and streams cascading against a towering mountain backdrop.
Explore this sublime glacial landscape by ship and by Zodiac.
The waters here are relatively warm, due to the West Greenland Current and the subarctic location.

Day 3 :

Visit Museums, Shops, and Cafés
Stop in at vibrant Nuuk, the capital of Greenland.
Visit the Greenland National Museum, one of the city’s many outstanding features, where the world-famous Qilakitsoq mummies rest.
The old harbour includes many buildings dating from Danish colonial days, while contemporary Nuuk is known for art, shopping, pubs, and cafés.

Learn From Inuit in Their Homeland
Deepen your understanding of the environment, cultures, and history of the region as we sail across the Davis Strait towards Labrador. Get the privileged opportunity to engage with and learn from Inuit in their homeland.
Enjoy workshops and presentations, watch a documentary, and get out on deck! Try your hand at athletic feats during an interactive cultural performance of Inuit games.
Through shared experiences and interactions, develop a deep appreciation for the culture and gain a profound connection to the stunning landscapes we traverse.
Keep your binoculars ready to spot whales and seabirds who follow in our wake.

Hike the Mountainous Tundra and Spot Wildlife
Spend four days exploring an area of treeless, mountainous tundra in Torngat Mountains National Park, where some of Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found.
Enjoy your time hiking, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising. Here, Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be your guides in their spiritual homeland.
Inuit of Nunavik and Nunatsiavut play a key role as partners in the management of Torngat Mountains National Park.
Many see the park as a portal for better understanding of Inuit culture. The word Torngat is derived from the Inuttut word tongait, meaning “place of spirits,” where Inuit shamans travelled to connect with higher powers. It is not hard, even for a visitor, to feel the power of the place.
Also be on the lookout for marine mammals, polar and black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles.

Day 9 :

Ponder Poignant History
Step back in time to the historical site of Hebron, which preserves a Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s.
Call in at the old church, which is where Inuit who resided here in 1959 learned they would be forced to relocate.
Take a moment to read the plaque that commemorates this history and the apology to people affected by the relocations, issued by the government of Newfoundland and Labrador in 2005.
Listen to the stories shared by our guides and meet former Hebron residents and their kin who continue to visit the site and to hunt and fish nearby.

Day 10 :

Experience Inuit Culture
Visit Nain, the most northerly community in Labrador and the administrative capital of Nunatsiavut.
Stop in at the historic Moravian church, enjoy the vibrant brass band, and visit Illusuak, the stunning cultural centre.
Expect a warm welcome and the opportunity to peruse arts and handicrafts at this dynamic visit.
This will be your first chance to see trees since the start of your journey!

Enjoy Hiking and Zodiac Cruises
Explore the southern Labrador coast, where you’ll find a diverse geography of coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, string bog, and islands.
We’ll make the most of every opportunity to hike and Zodiac cruise alongside our expedition team. With their expert guidance, every step of your journey will be filled with insightful interpretation, allowing you to truly appreciate the beauty and significance of the landscapes you encounter.
