The Expedition 2017

The 2017 Arctic Expedition begins in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa. After several days of pre-expedition activities, we fly to Resolute Bay Nunavut and set sail through the Canadian high Arctic to explore the diverse communities and coastlines. The ship will then cross the Davis Strait to discover the western coast of Greenland. Our expedition will end in Kangerlussuaq, where we will board our charter flight back to Ottawa.

Each day will be filled with exploration, discovery, presentations, workshops, hands-on research, hikes, and lots of adventure! Activities will include wildlife encounters, visits to Arctic communities, as well as the opportunity to acquire first-hand knowledge and insight into the dynamics of climate change, traditional knowledge, scientific research, policy and other important Arctic and global topics.
