Go Light - Paddling and Hiking the Soper River


Day 1

Fly from Ottawa to Iqaluit. Upon arrival, we will transfer to our lodging. Once settled, we will meet for a trip overview and equipment check. Overnight in Iqaluit.

Day 2

Weather, pilot hours, and aircraft permitting, we will board a chartered Twin Otter for our flight to our drop-off site on the Soper River. Upon arrival we will go through an orientation, begin to set up our camp, and settle in for the evening, enveloped by the dramatic natural scenes.

Days 3 - 5

We will spend the next two days exploring the Soper River Valley, paddling through and hiking along the river, admiring the many species of flora and fauna that call this region home. Throughout the course of our adventure, your guide will provide informal commentary on the flora, geology, birdlife, and geographical features of this spectacular environment.

Day 6

This is our last day paddling and hiking before arriving to Kimmirut Landing, where we will transfer to Kimmirut (previously known as Lake Harbour), a small and picturesque community located on the Hudson Strait on Baffin Island’s Meta Incognita Peninsula. Overnight in Kimmirut.

Day 7

Weather permitting, we will fly from Kimmirut to Iqaluit and spend the evening in Nunavut’s dynamic capital city. Overnight in Iqaluit.

Day 8

Transfer to the airport for your flight to Ottawa and onwards for your return home.

Additional Notes

Due to the nature of adventure travel in the Arctic, this itinerary is subject to change.

As weather is unpredictable in the north, there is a slight chance of the charter or scheduled aircraft being delayed. We strongly urge you to purchase an airline ticket that allows you to change your departure date with minimal penalty. We also recommend that you obtain travel insurance to cover you in case you miss your scheduled flight.
