T ravelling to the High Arctic is like stepping into a different world. You enter the home of incredible wildlife: polar bears, walrus and narwhal, to name a few. With dramatic landscapes including soaring icebergs, majestic moun- tains and thousands-of-years-old glaciers, there are wonders to see at every turn. BUCKET LIST EXPERIENCES From viewing rarely seen animals up close in a vast wilderness to kayaking among ice- bergs under the midnight sun, the Arctic is the place to go for amazing experiences you can't get anywhere else. Feel the exhilaration of gliding across the sea ice by snowmobile and qamutik (Inuit sled) to the floe edge where the land-fast ice meets the open water and wildlife come to congregate. View the shimmering northern lights after a day spent photographing polar bears. These are all experiences you can cross off your bucket list with Arctic Kingdom. UNIQUE WILDLIFE Witnessing the majesty of the rare, mythical narwhal—the unicorn of the sea—is simply moving. The 24 hours of daylight in spring and spectacular ice formations make encounters even more awe inspiring. Observing polar bears above the tree line on the sea ice, climbing icebergs or swim- ming is a sight that few people get to experience first-hand. While they can be spotted in Nunavut almost year-round, the key is to know where to see them at ideal times of the year. Arctic Kingdom is the only operator to offer opportunities to see polar bears during every season. THE BEST OF THE ARCTIC Take it all in without worry; Arctic Kingdom trips let you explore this remote destination in safety and comfort. Guided by Inuit, these exclusive small-group trips allow the chance to safely view and photograph majestic Arctic animals up close. Days of discovery are only enhanced by comfortable safari camps set up in ideal locations and gourmet meals prepared by professional chefs. With almost 20 years of experience in the Arctic, you can rest assured you're in good hands at the top of the world. Nothing can compare. You'll leave the Arctic with a different perspective on the world and incredible memories. Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
