Home to polar bears, musk-oxen, arctic foxes and hundreds of beluga whales, the Canadian High Arctic is an unparalleled destination for the adventurous expeditioners.
Canadian High Arctic Expeditions
The Canadian High arctic consists of Canada, Greenland, and Baffin Island. These locations provide wonderful natural landscapes, wildlife and are great for adventure. We visit the High Arctic at the best time of year – when Spring transitions to Summer and the sun is constantly shining. The High Arctic is a paradise full of animals. In the waters you can find narwhals, beautiful belugas, majestic bowhead whales and seals. The rocks and the sky are full of migratory birds. On the land you can find caribou, wolves, musk-oxes, Arctic foxes and Polar bears.
Traveling the Canadian High ArcticThe Canadian High Arctic is great to experience from the water on a vessel, but also from land in the middle of nature. At Waterproof we offer expedition cruises on comfortable vessels that provide a wonderful view, multiple destinations and close ups to wildlife. If you rather stay in a lodge on the land and roam around the wild nature looking for wildlife above and below the surface, the Canadian High Arctic has just that. For the real adventure seekers we have a Heli-ski trip at Baffin island for experienced skiing.
