Follow the Journey
In less than a week students will arrive from all over the world to take part in the 2019 Students on Ice Arctic Expedition!
Follow the journey daily starting with our northern pre-program (Saavittut) July 21-23 followed by the official launch event on July 23rd in Ottawa! From here the expedition team will fly to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland and set sail up the western coast of Greenland, cross the Davis Strait and through the Canadian High Arctic, ending in Resolute and returning to Ottawa on August 7th.
We invite you to follow along as the students learn about the Arctic through land and ship-based programming led by scientists, elders, artists, historians and visionary leaders. Daily updates will be shared here through blog posts, photos and videos. You can also receive regular updates via our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram pages and tracking #SOIArctic2019.
