At Arctic Kingdom, we’re passionate about reaching people around the world to understand and appreciate the North’s beauty. We’re especially enthusiastic about sharing the Canadian Arctic with our fellow Canadians. That’s why we’re excited to be teaming up with The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS), an organization dedicated to making Canada better known to Canadians and the world. And what better way to kick off this incredible partnership than by having RCGS’ Honorary President, Alex Trebek, join our Narwhal & Polar Bear Safari for our 20th anniversary?
Alex Trebek’s Journey to the Floe Edge
Alex Trebek will be joining the 7-day Narwhal & Polar Bear Safari on the June 18 – 24, 2019 departure. Best known as the host of Jeopardy!, Trebek is a world-traveller and champion of geographic literacy who has inspired thousands of people to learn more about the planet, and especially his native country, Canada.
For this special RCGS expedition, travellers will explore alongside Trebek for this life-altering adventure. The destination for this exclusive floe edge tour, Narwhal & Polar Bear Safari, is Navy Board Inlet, Nunavut. At the northern reaches of Baffin Island, this is one of the most fascinating regions in not only Canada, but the world.
Starting with a fly-in experience from Pond Inlet, guests get a chance to experience the magnificence of the last vast wilderness on Earth: Canada’s High Arctic.
Witness the migration of narwhal and beluga at the world-renowned floe edge of Lancaster Sound, spot majestic polar bears and keep an eye out for other Arctic wildlife under the Midnight Sun.
Putting a Spotlight on Canada’s North
Many Canadians seek unique travel experiences in international destinations, not knowing such beauty, incredible wildlife and natural wonders exist right in their home country. We have partnered with The Royal Canadian Geographical Society to not only attract more Canadians to explore Nunavut but nurture a greater understanding of Canada’s North.
Our partnership with RCGS aims to grow a deeper appreciation for the people, places, and natural and cultural heritage of the Canadian Arctic. Travel and exploration are great ways to gain new perspectives on the world. Together with The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, we know that the best way to appreciate a place is to experience it first-hand. Travellers gain a true understanding of the special, and often unknown, places in Canada’s North by learning about local culture, hearing Inuit elders speak about thousands of years-old traditions, taking in the incredible sights and sounds, and encountering rare wildlife in their element.
Partnering with RCGS, and having a Canadian celebrity so enthusiastic about Canada’s geography join us in the Arctic, allows us to reach more Canadians to highlight this special place on Earth.
