Get an extreme understanding of arctic wilderness survival as only the Inuit know.

On arrival in Cape Dorset you will be given a warm northern welcome with a community tour. It will be followed by an intimate and relaxing home cooked dinner, featuring delectable northern fare.

The following day, we review participants’ gear, load the boat and set sail down the south Baffin coast to Saqpak Bay where we will camp at our favourite summer fishing spot. Located 160 kilometres east of Dorset, this remote fish river abounds in arctic char that swim along the coast and at the river mouth during the summer season.

Nature will decide if we overnight en route at Iqalugaaqjuk Camp, as the tides and currents at various passages determine travel times. In the north, the land often chooses your schedule.

At Saqpak, we will work as a team to set up the tent camp. Fishing at the river will be best when the tides are coming in. You can hike with Inuit guides and search for caribou inland or cast for char along the coast.

We usually take a boat trip into the deep inlets of Saqpak Bay, past rugged untouched coastlines searching for wildlife.

Join us for the joy and thrill of an authentic arctic wilderness experience.
