June at The Floe Edge

June is a month of great change in the Arctic as the long days usher in a flurry of activity. Life returns to the land as wildflowers begin to blossom and tundra birds set up nesting territories. Life at sea also changes as the thick ice which has beset the waters for months yields to the sun’s warm rays and begins to break up. The Polar Bear remains as long as it can upon the ice along the breaks, while the break-up allows whales and seabirds to return to summer feeding grounds. The edge of ice and open sea – the floe edge – becomes a wildlife highway.

On this inaugural tour for wilderness lovers, we travel to the boundaries of ice and open sea at the very top of Hudson Bay. Starting at the village of Naujaat on the Arctic Circle (formerly called Repulse Bay), we make our way over the ice by snowmobile to the floe edge where we will set up camp and spend the coming days in a wonderful setting. Polar Bears may course atop the ice’s edges nearby. Narwhal, Beluga, and Bowhead Whales, pushing their boundaries into the thawing sea, may pass before us and stunning Arctic birds such as the gorgeous King Eider also push forth. We’ll feel the pulse of the Arctic spring as it takes place around us in serene surroundings. Photographic opportunities will be numerous. Our expert local guides will monitor the changing conditions, always on the lookout for all wildlife, and we’ll move about accordingly.

If you particularly enjoy the prospect of discovering Canada’s remote regions, then consider joining us for this inaugural tour of discovery at ‘the edge’.
