Taste of the Arctic Spring
Taste of the Arctic Spring Itinerary
Depart Ottawa around 9:00 am and fly north to Iqaluit, arriving early in the afternoon. You will be met by your Arctic Kingdom tour leader at the airport. After getting checked into your hotel room, we will begin with a three hour city tour of Iqaluit. We'll pass by the major sites and attractions, and visit the Visitor's Centre, museum, and the legislative assembly, the seat of government for the territory. Overnight Iqaluit.
Spend the day exploring by snowmobile. The route depends on local conditions and the skill level of the participants. The day should include a trip to a polynya, water that never freezes, where wildlife feed and rest. You'll be riding over sea ice, frozen tundra surrounding Iqaluit. Overnight Iqaluit.
A half-day of igloo building, is a hands-on introduction to the culture of the Inuit. So many Northern survival techniques still in use today were invented by the indigenous people of the Far North. Weather permitting, you will enjoy a half-day hike to one of three locations: Sylvia Grinnell River, Apex trail or Burton River.
The morning is at leisure to explore the city's art galleries or just relax. We will transfer you to the airport for your afternoon flight to Ottawa or Montreal.
