More than 36,000 islands make up the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the beautiful frozen wilderness north of mainland Canada, where the lands seems as though it's melting into the sea. Characterised by its deep fjords, steep cliffs and mountains stretching well into the horizon, this Arctic wonderland is home to spectacular sights, iconic wildlife and fascinating exploration history.
Despite claiming three of the largest islands in the world, the Canadian Arctic is largely uninhabited by humans, but the same can't be said for its wildlife. With huge populations of polar bears, whales, arctic foxes, caribou and musk oxen all to be found roaming across and amongst these thousands of islands, wildlife spotting is unsurprisingly a big draw when visiting this part of the world. But the centuries of historical exploration, the rich Inuit culture and fascinating settlements that can be visited, and of course, the outstanding scenery, from the steep iced cliffs to the green lowlands and scenic bays, all make an expedition through the magnificent archipelago a truly rewarding and inspiring adventure.
If you want to explore other highlights of this captivating part of the world, having come this far, there are many cruises that take in multiple destinations on the one voyage, with Greenland, and the Northwest Passage being popular destinations to combine with the Canadian Arctic.
