We asked her a few questions about her experience with her first expedition on board the RCGS Resolute If you had to choose one word to describe your first…
Expedition cruises showcase the breathtaking wilderness of Canada’s High Arctic and Canada’s East Coast. Wildlife is a major draw card and throughout the voyage we visit largest migratory bird sanctuaries, a number of locations where encounters with polar bears are frequent and Sable Island, home to wild horses. Sightings of puffings, seals, whales and narwhal are also common.
History is a major drawcard on our expeditions through Canadian water such as the stories of that ill-fated expedition by Sir John Franklin more than 170 years ago is central to our voyage. Franklin made his last heroic foray into the Arctic in 1845 with two ships and 129 men, never to be heard from again. The fate of the expedition remained a mystery – until September 2014 – when one of the vessels, HMS Erebus, was discovered in a remarkable state of preservation in the frigid waters of Victoria Strait. We will also visit other locations of significant history interest such as Beechey Island, Thule camp sites, Viking settlements and much more.
