Morocco A New Destination As African Travel Inc. Launches 2024 Brochure
Spending the Holidays in Puerto Vallarta
Think you've missed polar bear season for the year? Think again. Canadian tour operator Arctic Kingdom is offering an all new tour, Spring Polar Bears and Icebergs of Baffin IPhoto Safari, the first tour of its kind to explore Polar Bears in their natural habitat during the spring season.
"Canada's high Arctic is one of the most special places on the planet to see polar bears and possibly even cubs," said Graham Dickson, Arctic Kingdom founder and president. "While Churchill is renowned for polar bears in fall, Baffin Island is the Arctic's hidden jewel with year-round polar bears. We are thrilled to share this incredible location with the world and make travel here in early spring possible for the first time."
With tour departures through March and April 2017, Arctic Kingdom offers adventure travellers the chance to see polar bears venture onto the sea ice and the area's towering icebergs, an activity that is typically only seen by seasoned Inuits.
Now guests, led by Inuit guides, will embark upon a journey that utilizes both snowmobiles and qamutik (traditional Inuit sleds), that will lead them deep into the Arctic. The destination-an Arctic Safari Camp located on more than 2.5 metres (8 feet) of solid sea ice-is a spectacularly remote piece of the earth, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, giant icebergs and regular appearances of the Northern Lights.
"More adventurous than ever before, this is a true high Arctic experience. Being immersed in the world of the polar bear, out on the sea ice in spring and surrounded by the raw, untouched beauty of the Arctic landscape; it is polar bear viewing at its best," said David Briggs, Arctic Kingdom senior expedition leader and photographer. "There are unrivaled opportunities for award-winning photography at every turn. From seeing polar bears far above the treeline climbing on icebergs, to the dramatic land and icescapes, and awe-inspiring Northern Lights at night, this expedition is quite simply a wildlife and landscape photographer's dream."
Arctic Kingdom, which offers polar bear viewing tours all year long, has built deep-rooted relationships with local Inuit communities, providing a truly local perspective on life in the Arctic. In addition to polar bears, guests can often spot narwhal, bowhead whales and walrus. The most intrepid adventurers can even try their hand at polar diving.
