Black Feather’s Floe Edge trips have been designated a “Canadian Signature Experience” by Destination Canada. 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 and local 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.

Your safety will be the number one priority as we explore, film, and photograph one of nature’s most amazing and variable landscapes. Full advantage will be taken of the endless days to explore and learn more about this incredible environment and maximize on opportunities to see polar bears, a variety of species of sea birds, narwhal, seals, and (possibly) the massive bowhead whale. Depending on the conditions, there will be the opportunity to explore the area by ski or sea kayak.
