Dear Adventurers,

Adventure Canada’s Canadian itineraries continue to draw enthusiastic praise rom audiences rom around the world and theproposed schedule or 2009 will be no exception. Our voyages explore the northern and eastern most reaches o our country dropping into riendly communities and witnessing vast space and grandeur. Five voyages explore six unique and vibrant re-gions, Greenland, Nunavut, Nunavik, Nunatsiavut, New oundland and Labrador. Troughout the course o our programmingwe will examine the people, the geography and the cultural richness o each di erent region.

2009 is a year o note and o special signifcance or Arctic travellers. It marks the 10 th anniversary o the creation o Nunavut –the newest Canadian territory. Woven into the abric o our programming will be an examination o the erritory, its objectives& achievements thus ar. A key element will be the increased visibility o Inuit stewardship o the land including issues o globalwarming, hunting and wildli e conservation. We are ortunate to have a number o Inuit resource sta who have experiencedthis transition period and who can share their insights as we make our way through the amed Northwest Passage.

Along the coast o Labrador next year, Adventure Canada is thrilled to present a new concept in expeditionary cruising. OurAtlantic Arts Float will, in addition to our usual resource sta compliment, have additional writers, photographers, artists andmusicians. Inspired by the landscape, and through a set o workshops, collaborative projects, concerts and exhibitions we hope

to stoke the creative spirit. And as indicated below, we are honoured to be winning awards or tour program innovations.

wo historical fgures will be commemorated in 2009. We will celebrate the li e o New oundland’s own Captain Bob Bartlett,the world-renowned Arctic explorer and historical icon. It was Captain Bartlett that commanded Sir Robert Peary’s amed 1909North Pole expedition. Te ocus on the pole and the issues o the opening o the Northwest Passage are never ar rom theheadlines these days and our high Arctic itineraries provide a frsthand look at the changes and possible commerce in the northand the impact this might have this ragile ecosystem.

While each o our itineraries o ers a general ocus – wildli e, photography, art, historical exploration or Inuit culture - past andpresent, our programming remains multidisciplinary, with a team o expert resource sta on each sailing. We celebrated the

ounding o Nunavut in 1999 and we are delighted to o er our clients a 10 th anniversary program in 2009.

Experience the magic and mystery o the ar north as we combineits landscapes, people and communities into our rst high Arctic

adventure o the season. We begin in Kalaallit Nunaat (From theKalaallisut: Home o the Greenlanders), a land o awe-inspiring beauty.Greenland is a place where the ice comes alive in iridescent blues, jag-ged peaks reach or the heavens, delicate tundra owers nestle in tiny crevasses, towns are a brilliant montage o colour and much o the land-scape seems untouched by human hands. Tis sel -governing provinceo Denmark is the largest island in the world, covering nearly 3.5 mil-lion km 2, more than 80 percentis covered either by the ice cap orsmall glaciers.

Greenland has long been animportant destination as a stag-ing point or Arctic exploration.From the most early inhabitants, to the Vikings,through the age o exploration, and now withmodern-day travellers, the islandhas been a base, a stepping stoneand a nal target. Greenland’smost amous son is explorerKnud Rasmussen. A championo the Inuit people (his motherwas o Inuit descent), Rasmussen established an Inuit settlement atTule, northeast Greenland in 1910, with the aid o the DanishMissionary Society; he set up a code o laws or local government, andinstituted social services. “Tule” is rom the Latin word with the samespelling meaning “northernmost part o the inhabitable world.”

2009 marks the centennial anniversary o Sir Robert Peary and his team

o hearty explorers’ remarkable assertion, that a er twenty-three yearsand eight attempts, they nally reached the geographic North Pole. On

our journey we will head north in the ootsteps o Rasmussen and Peary while learning exciting tales o hardship, determination andcompetition that drove Peary and other explorers like him to pursue the vast unknown, acing countless trials along the way.

We will venture along the majority o the west coast, exploring the smallcommunities, walking alongside glaciers and cruising among the

icebergs. From Tule,we will travel as arnorth as ice and time

allows into SmithSound, be ore crossingover to Ellesmere Islandand into the mouth o the amed NorthwestPassage.

Troughout the voyage we have ampleopportunities to viewand photograph theunique wildli e thatcalls the Arctic home.Narwhal, beluga, polar

bears, and the rare and immaculately white Ivory Gull are all oundhere. Nesting colonies on Coburg and Prince Leopold Islands host tenso thousands o Tick-billed Murres and Black-leggedKittiwakes. We are also likely to encounter shorebirds, Dovekie,Northern Fulmar, and, with luck, Gyr alcon. At each stop, we board

zodiacs to go ashore, or position ourselves or the best views orphotographs o the wildli e, owers, icebergs and landscapes.

Kangerlussuaq (Søndre Strøm ord)Arriving rom Ottawa, we will board the Clipper Adventurer via Zodiacand prepare to steam out o one o the longest ords in the world with168km o superb scenery! Although the ord crosses the Arctic Circle,the waters here do not reeze, making this part o Greenland a year-roundcentre or shing and hunting.

Sisimuit CoastBetween Kangerlussuaq and Illulissat, the west Greenland coastline is arich tapestry o shing communities, myriad islands and complex coastalwaterways. Te human history in this area dates back 4,500 years.

Ilulissat250 km north o the Arctic Circle we nd the astounding coastalcommunity o Ilulissat. Ilulissat translates literally into “iceberg”, andthere couldn’t be a more tting name. Our visit wil l include time in thecolour ul town and a chance to hike out to an elevated viewpoint wherewe can observe the great elds o ice. We will also cruise in our eet o zodiacs in the UNESCO World Heritage Site o the Ilulissat Ice ord. Te

Ice ord is where we nd the Sermeq Kujalleq Glacier, one o the mostactive and astest moving in the world at 19 meters per day and calving

more than 35km 3 o ice annually. Te glacier has been the object o scienti c attention or 250 years and, because o its relative ease o accessibility, has signi cantly added to the understanding o ice-capglaciology, climate change and related geomorphic processes.

Qimusseriarsuaq (Melville Bay)In Qimusseriarsuaq, ormally known as Melville Bay, the Greenland IceCap reaches or the sea. Large icebergs, calved rom Sermeq Kujalleq Gla-cier, are carried north here by the West Greenland Current be ore headingwest to Ba n Bay. In the days o wooden ships, the bay was dubbed “thewrecking yard” by British, Dutch and American whaling eets due to thedamages caused to many a vessel’s hull. oday Qimusseriarsuaq is stillstrewn with icebergs, but global warming is taking its toll. TeGreenlandic government has created a shoreline reserve to protectsummer beluga and narwhal populations as well as breeding polar bears.

Kap York Te rugged coastal environment at Kap York is rich in wi ldli e and is parto an extensive network o traditional hunting grounds. During the spring

and summer months the skies and clifs are dotted with millions o birds,primarily auks and murres. Tis district boasts the largest seabird

population in northwest Greenland. Whalers and explorers o en enteredthese waters and later Admiral Robert Peary’s amily raised a monumentin honour o his achievements on the cape. Sailors’ and ships’ logsrecord multiple climbs o the cape in order to survey the ice conditions inQimusseriarsuaq. We will hike the tundra landscape and enjoy our ownmagni cent vistas.

QaanaaqIt is in Qaanaaq, the world’s most northerly municipality, that you can getclosest to what many people think o as the original Greenlandic huntingculture. Originally located 100km to the south, the present day community o Qaanaaq was relocated to accommodate the American Air Force baseextension at Tule in 1952. Te region, however, has a much more lengthy history, with archaeological evidence suggesting habitation over the past4,000 years. It was rom Qaanaaq that seven o Knud Rasmussen’sexpeditions set out, and it was a lso rom here that the American explorerRobert Peary embarked on his journey to reach the North Pole in 1909.Te inhabitants, Inughuit, are ne artisans and beauti ul small carvingsand jewellery can be purchased.

Karey IslandsTe Karey Islands straddle the border between Greenland and EllesmereIsland and support Dovekie colonies that breed in this area.

Smith Sound (2 days)We will spend a couple o days exploring north into this abled body o water that served as the main route or explorers and adventurerssearching or the North Pole. Adolphus Greely, Sir George Nares andElisha Kent Kane all travelled these waters with varying degrees o success. Te Sound was named by William Ba n a er Sir Tomas Smythe,promoter o voyages to nd a Northwest Passage. Only 48-72km wide and88km long, it is o en packed with ice and provides avourable conditions

or wildli e viewing.

Cape Norton, Ellesmere & Philpots, Devon IslandTe area comprising Devon and South Ellesmere is one o ew knownbreeding sites o the elusive Ivory Gull. Tey inhabit the rock outcropssticking through ice sheets, known as nunatacs. We’ll be on the lookout orthese beauti ul gulls as we pick our way through the ice into Jones Sound.

Cobourg IslandCobourg Island is 65% covered with ice, but the remaining ragged landis a haven or wildli e. Clif ledges are lled to capacity with 30,000pairs o Black-Legged Kittiwakes and 160,000 pairs o Brunnich’sGuillemot (Tick-Billed Murres) among other seabirds. As we tour thearea, we will keep our eyes peeled or the rare Ivory Gull and Northern

Fulmars also known to breed in the area.

Aujuittuq (Grise Fjord)Aujuittuq means “place that never thaws,” and at 1,150km above theArctic Circle, it is Canada’s northernmost civil ian community. Witha population o 165, we will be welcomed into this peace ul and warmhamlet. Our activities will center around the school where we willhave a chance to meet members o the community and learn abouttheir way o li e.

Devon IslandTe largest uninhabited island in the world supports signi cant con-centrations o wildli e, including 26 species o seabirds and 11 specieso marine mammals. At Dundas Harbour we nd the lonely remainso an RCMP station dating rom the 1920s. We have also spottedwalrus, polar bear, muskox and caribou here. At nearby Croker Bay,we have a chance to Zodiac cruise through this scenic bay and marvelat icebergs, reshly calved rom the glacier at the head o the bay.

Prince Leopold, Somerset IslandTe dramatic 244m limestone and sandstone clifs o Prince Leopold ishome to close to 375,000 migratory birds. Seabirds nest on the ledges

rom May to late September. Te entire island is a haven or birds andis included in the 311 km 2 Prince Leopold Bird Sanctuary.Species ound here include: Tick-billed Murre, Northern Fulmars,Black-legged Kittiwakes, Black Guillemots, Atlantic Brant, ParasiticJaegers, Common Eider, Common Raven, Glacous Gull and SnowBunting. Weather permitting we will cruise under the clifs in ourzodiacs or a better view.

Beechey IslandO particular interest to history bufs, Beechey Island is a “must visit”

or any Arctic traveller. A site o tremendous signi cance in Arcticexploration, it was the protected harbour o Beechey Island thatinclined Sir John Franklin to over winter here at the onset o his search

or the Northwest Passage. Over a century and a hal later the remains

o Franklin’s camp, including three graves, were discovered by searchparties looking or the lost men. Te island served as a search andrescue base in the years to come. oday our headstones and cairns are

ound rom the Franklin era.

Qausuittuq (Resolute Bay)Arriving in Resolute in early morning, we disembark Clipper Adventurer today. We will say our arewells to captain and crew be oreboarding our charter ight south to Ottawa.

From his success with the famed 1909 Peary Polar Expedition to his countlessFar North adventures and voyages, Bartlett is one of the true heroes of exploration in the 20th century.

Celebrating Bartlett 2009 is a program of events and projects to bring Bartlett’sstory to new generations. It will shine light on the legacy of the man whoseperseverance and strength symbolize the spirit of Newfoundland and Labrador.

A Life to ExploreBorn in the shing village of Brigus, Newfoundland in 1875, ‘Captain Bob’lived on the doorstep of the North Atlantic. Embracing the traditions of hismariner ancestors, Bartlett devoted his life to revealing the Arctic’s hiddenriches. For 50 years he fought the Arctic’s tense grip becoming the greatestIce Captain of the 20th century and one of North America’s last heroes of exploration.

He earned his place in history when he brought Admiral Robert Peary to the topof the world in the renowned North Pole trek of 1909. From this famousadventure and beyond, Bartlett continued to claim the Arctic - navigatingmore than 640,000km over 40 journeys.

On the 1914 Karluk expedition, he trekked 1,100km across the Arctic in 37 daysto rescue the survivors of this doomed journey. His bravery was recently de-scribed as “the nest feat of leadership in Canadian marine history.” Armed withexpertise and determination, Bartlett symbolized the Newfoundland and Labra-dor spirit of adventure and became a household name across North America as aleading Arctic explorer.

In addition to his exploration work, Bartlett dedicated the last 20 years of his lifeto scienti c research. His contribution to our understanding of the North is stillrecognized by many North American institutions. Celebrated as a CanadianPerson of National Historic Signi cance and honoured with a special USCongressional Medal and the National Geographic Society’s Hubbard Medal(awarded to notaries such as Neil Armstrong and Ernest Shackleton), Bartlettstands with our time’s great discoverers.

A Year to Celebrate

Celebrating Bartlett 2009 isan opportunity to embracethat great era of Arcticexploration.

Experience the worldthrough Bartlett’s eyes whenone of the last of the Arcticexpeditionary schooners,the Bowdoin, travels toports around Newfoundland

and Labrador to tell thestory of Far North explora-tion through interpretation,drama, exhibition, and enter-tainment.

During this year-longcelebration, engage intravelling exhibits,educational programs, artsprograms, historical reenactments, ceremonial activities, and

public boarding and sailing opportunities. On the centennialof his great voyage to the Pole, we’ll celebrate all of Bartlett- from stories of adversity and determination to adventures of glory and achievement.

Step into an era of discovery - a time when the Arcticcaptured the imagination of the entire world. Join us forCelebrating Bartlett 2009 and travel back to a time of rsts, atime of discovery - the time of Captain Bob Bartlett.

Captain Bob Bartlett Intrepid Arctic explorer. World-renowned mariner. Icon of North American history.

he quest or the Northwest Passage has occupied some o thebest minds o Western civilization or hal a millennium. TeEnglish called the hypothetical route the Northwest Passage,

while the Spanish called it the Strait o Anián. Te desire to establishsuch a route motivated much o the European exploration o bothcoasts o North America. In 2009, Adventure Canada will celebrateits 21st anniversary with the most coveted o Arctic itineraries, two journeys through the Northwest Passage. Beginning in Resolute,Cornwallis Island, we venture through the heart o the passage as we

ollow the Canadian mainland out toward the edge o the Beau ortSea. Troughout the Canadian Arctic waterways, history mani estsitsel as we pass straits, islands and peninsulas bearing the names o the men who charted this orbidden coastline.

During the rst journey, we sail through Rae Strait, the nal link inthe Passage as discovered by John Rae in 1854. We stop atUqsuqtuuq (Gj øa Haven), an Inuit settlement named a er the Gj øa,in which Roald Amundsen became the rst to navigate the Passagein 1904-06. We also pass Point urnagain, where in 1821, during

his rst overland expedition, John Franklin began a desperate (andtragic) overland ight or survival. During the second journey,historical highlights include a visit to Kugluktuk (Coppermine),where in 1771, a er trying and ailing to prevent a massacre atnearby Bloody Falls, Samuel Hearne became the rst European toreach the Arctic coast o the continent. And conditions permitting,we sail through Prince o Wales Strait, where in 1850, while trappedin what was then impassable ice, Robert McClure went sledging andclaimed that he had discovered the Northwest Passage. Join us in

tracing the “ atal passage” that conjures a history at once tragic andinspiring, a history encompassing hardship and death, but also cour-age, determination, and superhuman endurance.

Qausuittuq (Resolute Bay)Arriving in Resolute early a ernoon, we embark the Clipper Adventurer .

Beechey IslandIn 1845 Sir John Franklin took his expedition o 129 men in two ships intothe Wellington Channel. Not a soul returned rom the doomed expedition.It was two years be ore search parties were launched. Aside rom the bodieso three souls buried here, only relics were ound as clues to thedisappearance. Until recently, the three graves had le no clues as to the

ate o the rest o the men on board.

Prince Leopold, Somerset IslandSir James Clark Ross, perhaps the greatest polar explorer o the 19thcentury, was based at Prince Leopold in 1848-49. Ross’ expedition insearch o the Franklin party was overwhelmed by weather conditions andsufered much greater losses than Franklin’s during their rst winter. It wasalso here that Sir John Ross (James’ uncle) escaped in 1833 a erabandoning his vessel Victory ollowing our harrowing winters stuck astin the ice at Somerset Island. Te tall clifs o Prince Leopold Island areone o the top birding sites in the high Arctic both during the breeding andsummering seasons.

Bellot StraitBellot Strait separates Somerset Island rom the Boothia Peninsula,marking the northernmost point on the mainland o North America. Tecurrent in the strait can run at up to 8 knots and o en changes itsdirection. Te 2km-wide passage was discovered in 1852 by CaptainWilliam Kennedy, then commanding an expedition in search o Sir JohnFranklin. Te passage was named or Joseph René Bellot, a French navalo cer and arctic explorer who was Kennedy’s second-in-command whodied in the Arctic a year later, aged 26.

Fort RossIn 1937, the Fort Ross trading post was established by the Hudson’s Bay Company at the southeastern end o the Somerset Island, shortly a erScotty Gall became the rst captain to cross Bellot Strait in the HBC Ship, Aklavik. Only eleven years later, however, it was closed, as the severe iceconditions rendered it uneconomical and di cult to access. Tis le theisland uninhabited. Te ormer store and manager’s house are still used asshelters by Inuit caribou hunters rom aloyoak.

Ross) was originally named ‘King William Land’ or the reigning BritishKing, William IV. A number o other polar explorers, while searching orthe Northwest Passage, spent their winters at King William Island. JohnFranklin’s expedition was stranded in the sea ice northwest o the island andtwo o his crew are buried at Hall Point on the island’s south coast. Teisland is known or the large populations o caribou that summer therebe ore walking south over the sea ice in the autumn.

Uqsuqtuuq (Gjøa Haven)

In 1903, explorer Roald Amundsen, while looking or the NorthwestPassage, sailed through the James Ross Strait and stopped at a naturalharbour on the island’s south coast. Unable to proceed due to sea ice, hespent the winters o 1903-04 and 1904-05. Tere he learned Arctic livingskills rom the local Netsilik Inuit, skills that would later prove invaluable inhis Antarctic explorations. He used his ship Gjøa as a base or explorationsin the summer o 1904, sledding the Boothia Peninsula and travelling to themagnetic North Pole. Amundsen nally le , a er 22 months on the island,in August 1905. Te harbour where he lived is now the island’s only settlement, Gjøa Haven, which he called “the nest little harbour in the

world.” oday the population has blossomed rom 110 in 1961 to 1,064 in2006.

Queen Maud Gul Te Queen Maud Gul Migratory Bird Sanctuary contains the largest variety o geese o any nesting area in North America. Te Sanctuary is one o the

ew nesting areas or both the Atlantic Brant (Brant bernicla hrota) andPaci c Brant (Branta bernicla nigricans). Almost the entire population o Ross’ Goose (Chen rossii) nests here. It was named by Norwegian explorerRoald Amundsen in 1905 or Maud o Wales, the Queen o Norway. TeAhiak Caribou calve along the Queen Maud Gul coast in Nunavut andspend the summers here.

Inuinnaqtun (Bathurst Inlet)Te rst Europeans known to have visited the area arrived as part o the rstexpedition o John Franklin in 1821. Tere was little outside contact until1936 when both the Roman Catholic Church and the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) arrived. Although the Hudson’s Bay Company abandonedthe site in 1964, Inuit remain in the area and continue a traditional li estyle.

Coronation Gul Te Coronation Gul is host to several hundred islands and small islets.

Major groupings include the Duke o York Archipelago, the Jameson Islandsand the numerous small islands ound in the southwest. Te mainland south

o the gul may have substantial diamond and uranium deposits. Early explorersre erred to the people o this area as the “Copper” Inuit because o the copperreserves in the area, which they used or tools and trade. Te language o theCopper Inuit is more closely related to that o the people living around theMackenzie than it is to that o the people o Hudson Bay to the east.

Kangiryuar (Prince Albert Sound)Found on the west side o Victoria Island, Te Hudson’s Bay Company post atPrince Albert Sound was opened in 1923, moved to Walker Bay in 1928 and nally to Ulukhaktok (Holman) in 1939. Te large bluf that overlooks Ulukhaktok was thesource that provided the slate and copper used to make ulus and give thecommunity its name. Ulukhaktok is also the location o the most northern gol course in the Americas and hosts the “Billy Joss Open Celebrity Gol ournament”every summer.

Iqaluktuuttiaq (Cambridge Bay)With a population o just under 1,500, Iqaluktuuttiaq means “good shing place.” Itdraws its English name rom Prince Adolphus, Duke o Cambridge, and is a hamletlocated in the Kitikmeot Region o Nunavut. It is the nal resting place o theBaymaud captained by Roald Amundsen. Here we disembark Clipper Adventurer and make our way back to Ottawa.

Iqaluktuuttiaq (Cambridge Bay)Here we explore the Inuit settlement and ormer Hudson’s Bay Company postat Cambridge Bay. Local landmarks include a picturesque stone church and theremains o the three-masted schooner, Maud , a second ship built by Admundsen

or Arctic exploration. Tere is time to shop or local carvings and art. More than50 species o shorebirds can be ound here and muskoxen are o en seen near thecommunity.

Umingmaktuuq (Bay Chimo)Umingmaktuuq, meaning “like a muskox”, is a community at the site o a desertedHudson’s Bay Company post, which was ormed by Inuit amilies who elected

to lead a more traditional li estyle. Te hamlet is one o the smallest permanentcommunities in Nunavut, with less than two dozen residents. Electricity is pro- vided solely by portable generators, and a satellite phone is their only link to theoutside world.

Coronation Gul Separating Canada’s mainland the Arctic archipelago is the Coronation Gul .Named by Sir John Franklin in honour o coronation o King George IV, the Gul receives the Coppermine, ree, Rae and Richardson rivers. It is host to severalhundred islands and small islets.

Kugluktuk (Coppermine)Situated on the amed Coppermine River, the hamlet o Kugluktuk is home to1,200 residents. Te proximity to the treeline make this area particularily rich in

wildli e. Wolverines, moose, muskoxen, caribou, oxes, wolves and grizzly bearsare all resident species. Te people o Kugluktuk rely heavily on their traditionaleconomy o hunting and shing to eed and clothe their amilies or cultural andnutritional well being.

Amundsen Gul Te Amundsen Gul was explored and named a er the Norwegian explorerRoald Amundsen who visited between 1903 and 1906. Few people live along theshores o the gul , but there are a ew settlements, including Ikaahuk, Ulukhaktok,and Paulatuk. (birthplace o amed Inuit artist and Adventure Canada resourceperson, David Ruben Pictoukun).

Diamond Jenness PeninsulaTis peninsula is named or one o Canada’s pioneering anthropologists, andrecipient o the Society’s Massey Medal, documented Aboriginal li e in Canada’sNorth and in First Nations communities across the nation. He joined the rstmajor scienti c exploration o Canada’s Arctic rom 1913–16 with the CanadianArctic Expedition, led by explorer Vilhjalmur Ste ansson. While Ste ansson,Diamond and our others were ashore hunting caribou, ocean currents carriedaway their ship the Karluk. Surviving expedition members were orced toabandon her when it was subsequently crushed by ice. Jenness spent the nextseveral years becoming uent in Inuktitut and recording hundreds o drum dancesongs, poems, legends and stories on wax phonographic cylinders. We’ll visit theAlbert Islands here.

Ikaahuak (Sachs Harbour)Te traditional name Ikaahuk (“where you go across to”) re ers to both themovements o people rom Victoria Island to Banks Island to hunt, and thelater seasonal use o the Island or ox trapping. Te English name, SachsHarbour, comes rom the Mary Sachs, a ship in the Canadian Arctic Expedi-tion o 1913. A permanent settlement was established in 1929 when three Inuit

amilies moved here to trap. In 1953, the RCMP set up a detachment. Situatedon the southwestern coast o Banks Island, 122 people make up this lone per-manent settlement on Banks Island.

Prince o Wales Strait

Prince o Wales Strait is part o the Arctic Ocean, extending northeastward or275 km rom the Amundsen Gul to Viscount Melville Sound and separatingBanks and Victoria Islands. It was discovered in 1850 by Robert McClure, theIrish explorer, who came within sight o the Viscount Melville Sound be oreheavy ice orced him to turn back. It was named a er Albert Edward, then thePrince o Wales. It was not navigated until the RCMP patrol o Sgt Larsenin1944. It has since become the pre erred route o large vessels making the pas-sage.

Banks IslandHome to two thirds o the world’s population o Lesser Snow Geese, two

ederal Migratory Bird Sanctuaries were ounded in 1961. Te island is hometo Barren-ground Caribou, polar bears, muskoxen, and birds such as robins

and swallows. Te rst grizzly–polar bear hybrid ound in the wild, was onBanks Island in April 2006 near Sachs Harbour. Muskoxen, with a populationo about 40,000, are the most striking o the abundant wildli e on the island. Itwas named Banks Island in 1820 by Sir William Parry in honour o ventrilo-quist Sir Joseph Banks.

Winter Harbour, Melville IslandMelville Island was rst visited by British explorer Sir William Parry in 1819.Not only did he discover the island, ice orced him to spend the winter in 1820at what is now called “Winter Harbour”. Te island is named or Robert Dun-das, 2nd Viscount Melville, who was First Sea Lord at the time. Melville Island

is one o two major breeding grounds or a small sea goose, the Western HighArctic Brant. DNA analysis and eld observations suggest that these birds may be distinct rom other brant stocks. Numbering only 4,000-8,000 birds, this isone o the rarest goose stocks in the world.

Bathurst IslandGood soil conditions and a rare wetland environment produce abundant veg-etation here, making Bathurst a major calving area or the endangered Peary Caribou. Here we also nd Polar Bear Pass National Wildli e Area, a migratory route or polar bears rom March to November. Te north hal o the island isthe proposed uktusiuqvialuk National Park. Tere is a long human history onthe island, with evidence o Dorset and Tule habitation as early as 2,000 BC.

Beechey IslandIn 1845 Sir John Franklin took his expedition o 129 men in two ships into theWellington Channel. Not a soul returned rom the ate ul expedition. It was twoyears be ore search parties were launched. Aside rom the bodies o three soulsburied here, only relics were ound as clues to the disappearance. Until recently,the three graves had le no indication as to the ate o the rest o the British party.Such is the interest in this story, the Canadian government recently announced anew initiative to locate the missing Franklin vessels.

Devon IslandSailing through Lancaster Sound we will explore one o the large bays along thesouth coast o Devon Island. We’ll search out scenic icebergs, walrus and polarbears, as well as birdli e. Likely sightings are dovekies, and black guillemots, aswell as one o the largest ulmar colonies in the eastern Canadian Arctic.

Mattimatalik (Pond Inlet)We will sail through Milne Inlet, a narwhal breeding ground, enroute to PondInlet. Tis bustling Arctic community is surrounded by one o the most beauti ullandscapes in the Eastern Arctic. We will have a chance to explore the town, aswell as take in a cultural presentation at the Nattinnak Centre.Northeast Ba n Fjords & Buchan Gul We’ll investigate the rugged coastline and ords o the Buchan Gul and North-east Ba n by Zodiac. Virtually unknown to modern travellers, these ords areknown or dog-tongued glaciers and mountains that have been sculpted by theancient Laurentian ice sheet which once covered North America.

Crossing Davis StraitWhile crossing Davis Strait, we’ll relax and enjoy onboard lectures andopportunities to watch or wildli e rom the ship’s decks.

Ilulissat (Jakøbshavns Is ord), GreenlandSnapping ice, growling glaciers and the howl o sled dogs – all sounds we willhear as we enter the Ilulissat harbour in the shadow o the nearby ice cap. Ex-ploring the town reveals why this stop is a avourite or visitors rom all over the

world. Venturing a little urther out o town on the tundra to the hills beyondrewards the wanderer with spectacular views o the Jacøbshavn ice eld. Icebergscalving rom this eld travel as ar south as New York.

Itilleq (Itivdleq)Living in a small town that relies primarily on shing or its existence, Itilleq’sresidents are closely tied to the land and its resources. Beauti ully colouredhouses speckle the rocky landscape as the town’s children play reely in rocky

elds. We’ll engage the local soccer team in a riendly match.

Kangerlussuaq (Sondre Strom ord)

Lying at the head o the longest ord in western Greenland, Kangerlussuaq hasone o the most stable climates in the region though temperatures can rangerom –50C in the winter to as high as 28C in summer. From the Greenlandic,

Kangerlussuaq, which means ‘Te Big Fjord,’ at 168km long. Departing the shiphere, we will make our way home.

Your Itinerary For the Inuit, the north represents their chosen landscape or survival and is home to their rich artistic and cultural legacy, which isalive and responsive to the new challenges o the twenty- rst century. Our Heart o the Arcticprogram celebrates this legacy, as we

will continue an enriching program o exploration, cultural immersion, art and archaeology with a host o outstanding resourceguides and exceptional guests. As a special treat, we have commissioned an exclusive, original print rom Pangnirtung Artist Jolly Atagooyuk which will be complimentary or each couple booked on this voyage.

Our journey begins as we sail up Kangerlussuaq Fjord, West Greenland’s longest and most captivating. We will compare and contrastGreenlandic communities with the Canadian territories o Nunavut and Nunavik. Visiting hamlets, engaging in sports and cultural eventswe arrive at a deeper understanding o our neighbours to the north.

As well known Arctic archaeologist and author Bob McGhee has written, “our southern vision o the Arctic is so enticing that it cannot beentirely submerged in reality.” Te arts o the Inuit have in ormed southernaudiences or the last 60 years with visual imagery that has red our imaginations.Trough sculpted orms, prints and drawings and magni cent weavings we only glimpse this spectacular landscape. We now have the privilege o experiencing

rst hand, their reality.

Kangerlussuaq (Søndre Strøm ord), GreenlandArriving into Kangerlussuaq, it is possible to see the largest ice cap in theworld rom your airplane window. Boarding the Clipper Adventurer in thea ernoon, we will make our journey down spectacular Sondre Strom ord.

Itilleq (Itivdleq)Itilleq’s claim to ame is it’s the home o the largest sheep arm in all o

south Greenland. Excellent pasture lands make it ideal or haymaking,keeping the sheep o Itilleq in odder over the winter months. Also knownas ‘the place to cross over’, Itilleq is a small town o 140 with colour ulbuildings that charm visitors as we engage the local soccer team in oursemi-annual, and consistently unsuccess ul match.

Ilulissat (Jakøbshavns Is ord)With a population o just over 4,000 people, Ilulissat is Greenland’s thirdlargest town. Te harbour is a picturesque mishmash o icebergs, sh-ing boats, hovering gulls and riendly aces. Once ashore we will learnabout the inhabitants o Ilulissat and West Greenland at the museum andcultural centers. Art lovers can look or their very own upilak, a small

carving, characteristic o the area, meant to ward of evil spirits. A er ourcommunity experience we will walk to the ridge o the Ilulissat Ice ord, anawe inspiring setting where we can hear the ast moving glacial ice-streamand grumbling as the massive icesheets and bergs make their way out intothe harbour set on a course or New York, and beyond.

Crossing Davis Strait

While crossing Davis Strait, we’ll relax and enjoy onboard lectures andopportunities to watch or wildli e rom the ship’s decks.

Pangnirtung (Cumberland Peninsula)‘Pang’ is situated at the oot o one o the most spectacular backdrops o the Canadian Arctic. Mount Duval, at 850m, casts brilliant shadows andclouds over the boats moored in the bay, creating an ideal photo-op orshutterbugs. We’ll visit the print shop and tapestry studio at the Uqqur-miut Art Centre. Pangnirtung is a major Ba n arts community. In honouro the print shop’s 30th Anniversary, we have commissioned anexclusive print rom Pangnirtung Artist Jolly Atagooyuk which willbe complimentary or each couple booked on this voyage.

Kitigtung (Lady Franklin Island)Here we will be on the lookout or aseasonal walrus haulout where large groupso them can sometimes be ound, loungingon the rocks.

Kimmirut (Lake Harbour)Te population o Kimmirut isapproximately 400. Once theadministrative centre o south Ba n, itis now one o the smallest communitiesin the region. An Anglican mission wasestablished here in 1909, ollowed closely in 1911 by the rst Hudson Bay Company trading post in the Ba n Region. Te RoyalCanadian Mounted Police establishedtheir rst detachment in the Ba n regionhere in 1926. Elders here remember artlegend, James A. Houston, newly marriedto his rst wi e, Alma, passing throughby dogteam in the early days o 1951, enroute to Kinngait (Cape Dorset). oday,the economy thrives on harvesting ma-rine mammals, sh and land game. Many residents are renowned carvers whose art issold and collected around the world.

Kinngait (Cape Dorset)Along the northwest shore o Dorset Island,surrounded on one side by rocky hills and on the other by Hudson Strait,lies the community that art built. Between 1950 and 1962, Kinngaithosted a historic collaboration between local Inuit and James and AlmaHouston – the collaboration that launched Inuit art onto the world stage.In the distance are the jagged outlines o islands, and the inlets o Ba nIsland’s southern coast. Like most other settlements in Nunavut, Kinn-gait is a modern community, with winding gravel roads, small woodenhouses, schools, stores, hotels, a nursing station, government o ces andchurches. But it is the outstanding artists, printmakers and carvers thathave made Cape Dorset the Inuit art capital o the world.

Kangiqsujuaq (Wakeham Bay)Kangiqsujuaq, is snuggled in the hollow o a splendid valley surroundedby majestic 500m high rocky hil ls. In a rocky pinching o the bay, knownas “the narrows”, we will have an opportunity to examine the base o whatwere, 1.80 billion years ago, Himalayan-scale mountains. Located in theregion o Nunavik the population is almost 500. In 1884, members o the Canadian Hudson’s Bay Expedition, aboard the steamship Neptune,arrived in the area anxious to establish a commercial route to Europethrough the Hudson Strait. An ice observation and meteorological stationwere built at nearby Stupart Bay (known as Aniuvarjuaq). Inuit began totrade requently with observers posted at the station: sealskin mitts andboots or tobacco and gunpowder. Wakeham Bay takes its name romCaptain William Wakeham who, in 1897, led an expedition to determinewhether the Hudson Strait was sa e or navigation.

Ungava Bay Located on the northern coast o Quebec, in the region o Nunavik, andopening out to the Hudson Strait and Labrador Sea, Ungava Bay canco-claim the highest tides in the world, tied with the Bay o Fundy in Nova Scotia. Ungava Bay reezes during the winter but at summerbreakup, ice loes with seals, polar bears and walrus can be ound

loating southward into the bay.

Kangirsuk Kangirsuk, meaning ‘the bay’ in Inuktitut, is located on the north shoreo the Payne River, inland rom Ungava Bay. he village lies between arocky cli to the north and a large, rocky hill to the west. henumerous lakes and rivers o the area are wel l known or their arcticchar and lake trout. he strong tides that occur on the Payne River makeit an extraordinary place or mussel harvesting. he richness o wildli eand lora o the surroundings o Kangirsuk is also impressive. On theislands o Kyak Bay and Virgin Lake located to the east and northeasto Kangirsuk, respectively, important colonies o eider ducks nest every year. Inuit women collect the precious down o those birds to make thewarm parkas that protect Kangirsumiut (residents o Kangirsuk) romthe biting, winter cold.

KuujjuaqBe ore it was named Kuujjuaq, early

ur traders knew this region as FortChimo. A mispronunciation o

saimuk, which means ‘Let’s shakehands’, ‘chimo’ was o ten used towelcome early ur traders to the post.

oday Kuujjuaq, theadministrative capital o the Inuitterritory o Nunavik, is a

lourishing community combiningtraditional Inuit culture with the con- veniences o modern day li e. From

here we will board the charter lightback to Ottawa.

http://slidepdf.com/reader/full/2009-canada-greenland-and-the-arctic 27/44

Our story begins in 1987 when we rst set out to explore the wilder places o Canada,those areas whose remoteness alone made them special. On our travels and in ourdaily li e we promote a philosophy o respect or the natural and cultural world. Webelieve by giving access to sensitive areas and sharing this philosophy with travellers,we can help to promote a wider and greater respect and understanding orenvironmental and cultural issues here in Canada and around the world.

In 1993 we undertook our rst “Voyage o Discovery” with a mandate to continue ourexploration while bringing a contextual ormat to the itinerary. Over the last severalyears our “Environmental Discovery Voyages” have become increasingly popular,taking us to polar opposites in the Canadian Arctic and the Antarctic, Greenland andIceland, exploring the Celtic ringe o Western Europe, and unlocking the secrets o British Columbia’s great coastal rain orests. Most recently, we have added Ecuador &the Galapagos Islands, A rica and New Zealand to our oferings. We mostly travel by small expedition ship, the best-suited mode o transportation or remote coastalexploration. Te number o passengers on our voyages runs between 16 and 118,

depending on the ship we choose. We believe that these small vessels are superior tolarge cruise liners, as they not only allow us to gain access to places not accessible by larger vessels, but our eet o Zodiac landing cra permit us to visit some o the mostremote places imaginable - the key to expeditionary travel.

In addition to our voyages each year, we ofer a series o specialized departures thatocus on the art and culture or the natural history and photography o an area under

our Art is Adventure™and PhotoWild!™ programs. Tese programs are speci cally cra ed to allow time or in-depth exploration and discovery with the guides selected

or each.

For most activities, a relatively low level o exertionis required. Our program eatures activities such aswalking, wildli e viewing and Zodiac cruising. Youwill need to climb into and out o Zodiacs (assistanceis provided) or excursions onshore, and some o ourlandings will be ‘wet’, requiring waterproo boots. Areasonable level o mobility is required to ully enjoy thistravel program, and all participants must have a ormcompleted by their physician to join. Wewill also ask you to provide some personalin ormation well in advance o your departure. We havedesigned shore excursions to accommodate both thosewho wish moderate strolls and those who pre er moreactive hikes. A ew o the excursions may have roughterrain, with rocky beaches.

In the seasons we travel, temperatures will vary depending upon our altitude on land, or ourship’s position at sea. Flexibility is a must, asitineraries are subject to change without prior notice,and landings may be tidal or weather dependant.

We will provide you with a complete list o recommended clothing, essentials to bring, and asuggested reading list upon registration. One monthprior to departure, we supply you with our

Pre-Departure Briefng : a detailed booklet to helpprepare you or your adventure. It includesin ormation on the wildli e, culture, landscape, ship,your guides and a brie history o your destination.

Meals are a great opportunity to meet new riends andrecount the days’ adventures, and special diets can beaccommodated with advance notice.

Everyone travels or diferent reasons, however, onecommon element is a thirst or knowledge and authen-tic experience. It is this desire that drives us to ensurethe highest quality learning experience on our trips, by taking the time to care ully design each trip we ofer.

About Our Style of Travel...

It is our desire to bring to you a top-notch team o resource and expeditionary staf. Weregularly travel with resource teams o 12 or more on a 100-passenger ship, meaning you getmore time and personal interaction with the specialists. Tis also allows us to cover a widerrange o subjects, which makes or a more complete understanding o the areas we travelthrough. Calling on major notable writers, artists, musicians, scientists and culturalists to journey with us, we take the time to explore our destinations rom a cultural perspective. Wedelight in the local exchange o ideas with Inuit and other First Nations societies and venture rom time to time into the ancient realms o the old world. On every departure, we

have on staf local inhabitants rom the places we visit. While all the research in the worldmay explain certain aspects o a place, no one can tell you about that place and its culturelike someone who lives and works in it everyday.

McLellan StraitAt the northernmost tip o Labrador, between the mainland andKilliniq Island, the entrance to the Hudson Strait is marked by anincreased chance to view wildli e. Te area attracts marine mammalssuch as polar bears, whales and seals due to the mixing o ocean currents

rom the Labrador Sea.

orngat Mountains National Park Reserve (3 days)From the Inuktitut word orngait , meaning “place o spirits”, the

orngat Mountains have been home to Inuit and their predecessors orthousands o years. Venturing south into the bays and ords along theNorthern Labrador Coast we notice the change in environment as lush

ora so s the sharp spikes o the orngat Mountain Range. Te ordshere reach well back into the depths o the orngats as we are

orngat National Park Reserve.

HebronTis is the site o a Moravian Mission Station, constructed in 1833complete with church, classrooms, administrative o ces and livingquarters. In the 18th century, the rst Europeans to settle north o Hamilton Inlet were missionaries o the Moravian Church and their mainconcern was the spreading o Christianity. Now undergoing a majorrestoration, the site o the old mission is set against a backdrop o spectacular scenery. Tis site is an excellent starting point or hikes o varying degrees o di culty.

HopedaleOriginally called Agvituk meaning ‘place o whales’, Hopedale was rstestablished in 1782 by Moravian Missionaries. oday the community is amix o Inuit and settler populations. raditional Inuit practices remainstrong and most o the six hundred plus residents are members o the Lab-

rador Inuit Association. Te Hopedale Mission is considered to be the old-est wooden- rame building east o Quebec and has been declared a NationalHistoric Site. Tere is a wonder ully run museum located by the Mission.
