Overview

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. Once a suitable area has been chosen, a comfortable base camp will be created.
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. The experience and knowledge of the local guides is also 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. This year we have added optional ski and kayak tours. These activities will depend on the conditions. The floe edge of North Baffin Island is a must-see place for wilderness photographers, birders, and wildlife observers. This base camp expedition is perfect for any outdoor enthusiast seeking a one-of-a-kind adventure in a most unique landscape!
