Whether it’s the Inuit culture of the Canadian North, the incredible wildlife along the fringe of the ice, or the riveting exploration history that captivates many a reader, the Arctic has an allure that grips many adventurers.  A parallel of latitude located at about 66 degrees and 33 minutes North, the Arctic Circle marks the southernmost latitude where the sun stays above the horizon for 24-hours on the Summer Solstice.

Baffin Island is the largest island in Canada, and forms part of the Canadian Arctic archipelago.  It is home to a variety of Arctic wildlife, including Arctic fox, Arctic hare, Arctic wolf and walrus.  Many species of whale summer off the coast of Baffin Island including Beluga, Narwhal and Bowhead whales.

Hudson Bay is the second largest bay in the world. The relatively shallow waters of Hudson Bay create a rich marine environment where a wide variety of animals is found. In addition, this area gives a whole new perspective on life in the Arctic as this part of Hudson Bay has a lengthy list of expedition mysteries and tragic stories.
