Day 1 IQALUIT
Board the M/V Polar Star in the Inuit capital of Nunavut.
Day 2 BAFFIN ISLAND
As we sail down Frobisher Bay we visit a new archaeological site thought to be of Viking origin, and then Zodiac cruise by the islands at the mouth of the bay where there is a good chance of seeing Polar Bears.
Day 3 AKPATOK ISLAND
Akpatok Island lies in Ungava Bay in northern Quebec, Canada. The isolated island has towering cliffs and is known as a sanctuary for cliff-nesting seabirds, polar bears and fossils. Numerous ice floes around the island attract walrus and whales, making Akpatok a traditional hunting ground for native Inuit people.
Day 4 NORTHERN LABRADOR
Our first dramatic view of the mainland is the Torngat Mountains, 3,000 feet above the sea.
Formed from some of the earth's oldest rock, the Torngat Mountains stand to attention as a natural frontier between the Labrador Sea and the Ungava Peninsula. Images of rugged, wind-swept peaks and untamed valleys, where caribou, wolves, black bear and ptarmigan are undisturbed by human visitors. Enjoy and experience the rich cultural history of the Inuit, the evidence of ancient cultures, Pre-Dorset, Thule and the present day Inuit, who maintain a deep relationship with the land as hunters and fishermen. We plan landings at Saglek Bay and Hebron.
Day 5 HOPEDALE
Farther south we come to this charming community where we will land to explore the remote community and area.
Day 6 BATTLE HARBOUR
We spend a lovely afternoon ashore learning about the bygone era of the Labrador schooner fishery in this preserved and reconstructed village.
Day 7 ST. ANTHONY & LANSE AUX MEADOWS
St. Anthony is home to Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a philanthropic physician and missionary. In the afternoon, we visit LAnse aux Meadows, a UNESCO world heritage site and only authenticated Viking settlement in North America as well as the reconstructed Viking village site of Norsted.
Day 8 BONAVISTA & TRINITY
We visit Bonavista with the Matthew replica and a traditional lighthouse, then the Random Passage film set and historical community of Trinity.
Day 9 ST. JOHNS
We steam by Signal Hill and enter the fine naturally sheltered harbour of St. Johns, north Americas oldest city.
