Greetings from all of us at Arctic Kingdom!

Welcome to the March 2010 Arctic Kingdom newsletter. As spring fast approaches, we are mobilizing for another exciting Arctic wildlife viewing season. If you are thinking you'd like to experience the sublime scenery and wildlife of the Arctic this year, there are still a few spots left! Don't hesitate to call or email us to find out availability. All scheduled trips currently listed on the Arctic Kingdom website are a 'go'.

2011 Trip dates released

2011 scheduled trip dates have been added to the Arctic Kingdom website, and bookings are already being taken.

Book now to ensure you get the trip date that best suits your schedule as space is extremely limited.

There are some notable additions to the 2011 schedule, including our new Lancaster Sound Beluga and Narwhal trip. Previously available only to private parties, this location is available as a scheduled expedition from June 19-27.

You'll also note a new option based on your feedback: We have scheduled trips that allow for the option of 'extending your trip' and participating on two consecutive trips to two different locations. The rationale? - Well, since you're already ìup thereî...why not spend an extra week and experience two unique areas of the Arctic, each with its own distinct scenery and wildlife?

For example, on both the Lancaster Sound Beluga and Narwhal (Arctic Bay, NU) and Narwhal and Polar Bear Floe Edge Adventure (Pond Inlet, NU), trips that end on June 27th 2011, we can then fly you to Igloolik to join the Bowhead Whales, Walrus & Inuit Culture of Foxe Basin that starts on June 27th!
