The Northwest Passage, Newfoundland and Labrador
The second of our inaugural voyages through the Northwest Passage, this expedition takes on a historic challenge: can we navigate the famously ice-clogged Fury and Hecla Strait? If conditions are right, we’ll spend the following days exploring—by ship, Zodiacs, kayaks and on shore hikes—the islands of the Foxe basin and Hudson Strait south of Baffin Island. If the Fury and Hecla Strait is impassable, we’ll sail to the north of Baffin Island, very familiar waters to us, where the landscape is equally stunning and inviting to activities, and plenty of late-season ice still clings to Baffin’s eastern shore. We’ll explore the wild and pristine Canadian High Arctic: Baffin Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, as well.
