In mid August, the ice of Eclipse Sound breaks up for its brief summer season - and we go kayaking in search of adventure and the elusive narwhal.

Our Pond Inlet trip starts with a 5 hour boat trip to Koluctoo Bay where narwhal often congregate to feed.

We will spend a day erecting our folding kayaks and doing a ‘shake down’ trip to the Robertson River - a spawning place for Arctic char. With luck, we’ll have fresh char for dinner. From Koluctoo Bay, we head north. As we paddle by fantastic headlands, secluded coves and barren shorelines, we are constantly watching and listening for the telltale ‘blow’ of the narwhal’s breathing.

We will come across stark reminders of the harsh past of the area: abandonned Inuit camps, rocky graves, stone and sod house remains. We’ll marvel at the challenges of their everyday life and be glad of our ‘modern’ gear ... expedition tents, gas burning stoves, excellent food, warm, weatherproof clothing and satellite communication! In arctic conditions, expect to be windbound for a couple of days. We will spend these off days exploring on foot. This trip is designed for keen sea kayakers with a taste for the unexpected in the high arctic.
