This voyage links numerous historic locations on Canada’s East Coast before we journey northwards from the more temperate climate found in the Maritimes onto higher latitudes. Subtle changes to vegetation and wildlife species can be noticed and our expert guides will interpret and explain these changes throughout the journey. The region features strong cultural diversity and we encounter the Nunatsiavut people in small communities along the coastline of Labrador. Numerous wildlife species are found along this coastline including bears, seals, whales and both migratory and resident birds.
Please Note: This trip commences in the historic port of Louisbourg (Cape Breton). Access is via Sydney
(Nova Scotia). We recommend you arrive in either Sydney or Louisbourg at least one day prior to the voyage departure date. This gives you a buffer in the event of any unexpected travel delays. There are group transfers from Sydney to Louisbourg (approx. 45 minutes) on the day of embarkation. At the conclusion of the trip, we fly from Kangerlussuaq (Greenland) back to Ottawa on a charter flight. This flight arrives in the early evening and we advise staying the night in Ottawa and making your onward travel plans for the following day.
