Back from the Arctic!

We are back from an amazing 6 weeks in the high arctic on Devon Island. We were helping to facilitate a program for Arctic Kingdom Expeditions and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to experience the Inuit culture and incredible landscape.

We were camped at the toe of the Devon Ice Cap in Croker Bay. The landscape was vast and seemingly barren. That is until you started to look closely. Polar Bear prints, Musk Oxen droppings and Snowy Owl feathers appeared and it was clear this land was rich in life.

We were guided and kept safe by the very skilled and amazingly welcoming Inuit guides that know this land as if their lives depend on it (which is does). We heard stories of their yearly Narwal and seal hunting and how it’s their favorite time of the year.

We only scratched the surface of Arctic Bay and the learning we can do up there. We will definitely be back there and hope to continue learning from the beautiful people of the land.
