Glaciers. Polar bears. Arctic Fox. Whales. We all know and love these icons of the Arctic. For the few of us who have been fortunate enough to visit the Arctic, this is a life-changing experience. The stark beauty of the Arctic’s white ice in contrast with its deep blue water, provides a soothing sense of peace (at least until you hear a glacier suddenly calve in front of you with a big splash)!
National Geographic released Before the Flood this fall, a documentary film featuring Leonardo DiCaprio which focuses on climate change around the world, how it affects our communities, and what we can do about it. The first place that DiCaprio visits in this National Geographic film is Baffin Island, a remote, rugged island in Canadian territory of Nunavut within the Arctic Circle. The film segment features the polar bears, bowhead whales, and glaciers found on and around the island, and shows the rapid pace at which the ice is melting. The film is available for free for a limited time on some National Geographic channels; we recommend watching it!
The Arctic ice is melting at an alarming rate, and Baffin Island will likely change significantly as a result of this melting. We wanted to share this unique, stunning island with you in its pristine, rugged state, so we are offering a once-in-a-lifetime exclusive AdventureWomen trip to Baffin Island in August, 2017. You’ll get to experience the long days and twilight of the Arctic summer, searching for polar bears by land and searching for whales by boat. Cruising in small boats allows you to get up close with the Arctic’s polar bears – a remarkable and unique wildlife experience. Spend your evenings in a premium safari-style tented camp with a backdrop of spectacular Arctic scenery.
If seeing polar bears is on your bucket list, you should join us on Baffin Island in 2017! Call us today!
