Daylight breaks the evening silence. After a long winter’s darkness, spring promises an arctic world teeming with life and renewal. With increasing daylight and moderate temperatures, animals and people come alive in the vastness of the north. Geese, swans, snow buntings, eider ducks and other bird species return to nest in the eastern Arctic.

Inuit families go out to live in spring camps along the coast. Join us for an Inuit spring camp adventure.

From Cape Dorset we will take you 80 kilometres on snowmobiles and qamutiks across vast stretches of sea ice and snow covered shorelines to Iqalugaaqjuk Camp at Andrew Gordon Bay.

At the camp you can stay in the comfort of a heated cabin, or you may choose to sleep in a traditional tent on the tundra. Jig for arctic char through the ice at the fish lake.

Experience the lure of the land during the arctic springtime; come along with us as we return to our spring camp.
