Overland Track

Our guides Victor & Matt made the trip – we were novice long distance walkers & inexperienced campers but their patience and understanding was greatly appreciated and has encouraged us to look forward to future treks. Thanks so much for making our 29th Wedding Anniversary so memorable.

We have relived our Tassie walk many times over – in fact each time we‘re back in the bush memories flood back from our trip Thanks once again to the staff for a fabulous adventure.

Northwest Passage East to West

Commencing with a monumental cruise along one of Greenland's longest fjords, this voyage of discovery delves into the heart of the Northwest Passage. Sailing out to Davis Strait we cross into the Arctic Circle and head north, stopping along the Sisimiut Coast, where we encounter colourful houses set on the treeless tundra, and meet the friendly locals to share in their culture. In Ilulissat, we marvel at vast icefields and visit the vibrant fishing community there. A hike through the tundra at Karrat Fjord provides opportunities for grand vistas and encounters with the local wildlife. Crossing from Greenland to the Canadian Arctic, we will continue our journey as conditions permit, exploring legendary locations swathed in ice and bathed in northern light, among them: Smith Sound, the Beaufort Sea, Prince of Wales Strait, Amundsen Gulf and Melville Island. Lancaster Sound is famous for its beluga whales and other marine mammals. Beechey Island holds the graves of the ill-fated Franklin expedition. Our trip concludes in the Canadian town of Kugluktuk.
