Small-ship expedition travel specialist Adventure Canada, is hosting a FAM for select travel advisors on its 2020 High Arctic Explorer expedition. 

Qualified advisors are invited to submit an application before 31MAR, 2020 to join this life-changing journey for the FAM rate of US$3,175, a 75% savings off the retail rate. 

Travelling aboard the 198-passenger Ocean Endeavour, advisors can explore Canada’s Arctic on a 12-day adventure from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, to Qausuittuq (Resolute), Nunavut. 

Among the highlight activities:

 

  • Watch icebergs calving from Greenland’s glaciers
  • Hike on Devon Island, the largest uninhabited island on Earth, and marvel at the tundra in summer bloom. 
  • Enjoy an Inuit cultural welcome at Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet)
  • Spot wildlife in Tallurutiup Imanga (Lancaster Sound), Canada’s largest and newest Marine Protected Area, and visit the Franklin Expedition graves at Beechey Island.

 

Adventure Canada says the FAM follows the success of the 2019 High Arctic Explorer, when 19 advisors climbed on board the Ocean Endeavour to experience one of the company’s flagship expeditions.

“[Adventure Canada] really [does] know how to look after their guests and make every day unique and special,” said Kerryn O’Neal, a travel advisor with Australia’s Dreamlines. “Their knowledge of the destinations and the educated resource team made for an incredible journey, one I will never be able to top.”

For the FAM rate selected advisors will receive a berth in a category 3 shared cabin, charter flights from Ottawa and returning to Toronto, a complimentary expedition jacket, special access permits, entry and park fees, guided activities, sightseeing and community visits, interactive workshops, all shipboard meals, and more. 

 

Pre- and post-tour hotels, travel insurance, gratuities, onboard expenses, and optional excursions are not included.
