THIS IS A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!!
Explore the arctic in the most capable and knowledgable hands. It is the ultimate way to appreciate the mostly unexplored regions of Canada's northern point, an area which the Weber family are heroically familiar with. Many years of experience cater for an expert understanding of the climate, the landscape & everything there is to offer in this incredible part of the world.
Run and owned by a family of 3 generations, it is the most northern point to Heli ski with an operation in the world. Their hotel has 8 bedrooms (and they only take a group of max 8 skiers at one time, so small groups which is great for the skiing) The community is predominantly Inuits, it is very very remote and still true inuit living so hugely interesting culturally too, you hang out with them, its a community.
There is so much more than the heli skiing (which alone is insane, where you can still ski first decents & name a mountain) such as dog sledding & watching polar bears in the hotel garden. (Early May is the best time for Polar Bears. They have recently emerged from their dens and live in the fiords that you ski, before heading out to the floe edge for the summer).
Experience the world’s most northern helicopter skiing as you explore the Arctic Cordillera range of Baffin Island - the most dramatic mountains in the Arctic icefields with tumbling glaciers, deep fjords and the world’s tallest sheer granite walls. See polar bears and other Arctic wildlife, discover Clyde River’s vibrant Inuit culture, and enjoy gourmet meals prepared by Weber Arctic’s private chef.
Adventure and Wildlife at 74° North. Witness unique Arctic wildlife from polar bears, muskoxen, arctic fox and a wide array of birds; watch beluga whales frolic a few metres from shore; go rafting, paddle boarding or kayaking on the Cunningham River; hike through the Badlands; bike on the tundra; visit 1,000 year-old archaeological sites; check out spectacular waterfalls and canyons; ATV the Muskox Ridge trail; and fish for arctic char.
