Arctic Land Expedition Overview
Why an Arctic Land Expedition: These unique land-based expeditions are highly personalised adventures which give you a taste of what it is like to live in the Arctic. Learn from Inuit guides and travel by traditional Inuit sled, crossing stunning icy landscapes of mountains and glaciers.
Climate: The Arctic is warmer than Antarctica due to much of the area being ocean rather than land. Temperatures usually hover around or just above zero but can vary widely depending on the season, the location, weather conditions and wind chill factor. Riding behind a snowmobile can be very windy and cold. Still, sunny days can be surprisingly warm so you need to be prepared for all conditions.
Combine With: A holiday in Canada or Alaska. Visit Newfoundland, explore the Rockies, go grizzly bear viewing on Canada’s west coast or take a cruise through the beautiful Inside Passage. See our Canada & Alaska program for more details or download our brochure.
Getting There: Fly from Ottawa in eastern Canada to Igloolik, Iqaluit, Arctic Bay or Pond Inlet on Baffin Island, depending on where your expedition departs. On arrival to the starting point, you are met by your guides and transported by Inuit sled and snowmobile to your campsite.
