To visit this remote art of Canada to view polar bears and other Arctic creatures was one of the most outstanding trips we have taken anywhere. And to pack it all into one day on the very user-friendly Canadian North Airline and in that accommodating...More

Found this company via online search, and glad I did. We did the tour out of Calgary, and it was outstanding all around. Easy on/off the plane at both ends, the guides are all very friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner are all included, and the food...More

I realize the cost of getting into such an isolated community and the fact that a person just can't go on their own, however, the rickety school buses after a grueling 6-7 hour ride on a bouncy, slow tundra buggy was a definite disappointment. The...More
