Floe Edge Adventure Basecamp

Floe Edge Adventure Basecamp

From the community of Pond Inlet, we will travel by snowmobile and qamutik (wooden sled) towards the floe-edge, an area known as the "line of life". Guided by highly qualified Black Feather guides as well as Inuit guides, ice conditions and weather will determine our exact route and location of our comfortable base camp. The base camp will serve as a hub for the expedition and the various activities that will be undertaken. This trip will focus on exploring the Floe Edge and surroundings by cross country ski and (conditions permitting) sea kayak. These will be optional short outings. Your safety will be the number one priority as we explore, film and photograph this, one of Nature's most amazing and variable landscapes. No other company in the world has the same experience organizing and running this type of adventure. The experience and knowledge of the local guides is unmatched. Combined with top quality customer service and attention to detail, this is truly one of the classic Arctic adventures. Full advantage will be taken of the endless days to explore and learn more about this incredible environment and area. During this expedition we have a chance of seeing polar bears, a variety of species of sea birds, narwhals, seals and possibly the massive bowhead whale.

Black Feather's Floe Edge trips have been designated a “Canadian Signature Experience” by Destination Canada. In addition to these dates, we will also offer a wildlife viewing and a photography oriented version of this trip in 2021.

"This was a fabulous experience and the memories will last a long time. Thank you for a great trip”,  Monika, B.C., Canada
