Canadian Arctic – Top places to travel to in 2020

Written by: Travel Inn

The Canadian Arctic is “the world’s last and most pristine wilderness, with places man has not walked upon for over 500 years,” says Tessum Weber, a member of the esteemed family of explorers that runs Weber Arctic. It’s the ultimate destination for travelers, with a certain starkness that only polar regions can provide—though it’s rapidly losing its battle with the ever-rising tides. “Climate change is affecting the Canadian Arctic at more than twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth,” Weber says. “Simply put: The North is melting.” Ironically, the dramatic ice melt has made it easier for cruisers to transit the entirety of the Northwest Passage. Last year, Eyos Expeditions had three small ships complete the journey. “Twenty or 30 years ago, it would have been a rarity for several vessels to make it through in a season—a new record,” says captain Ben Lyons, Eyos’s CEO, who plans to run more routes in 2020 and encourages his guests to notice the changes to the landscape as they sail through. The cracking of the ice has also provided travelers on Adventure Canada’s ships the opportunity to glimpse the wreckage of the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror from Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated expedition through the Northwest Passage. The Canadian Arctic also delivers on culture in ways that few far-flung destinations can. Small businesses based out of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories and Iqaluit in Nunavut offer indigenous experiences as readily as their trademark wildlife- and aurora-watching. And both Adventure Canada and Arctic Kingdom have bridged fair-trade relationships with a variety of local communities, offering unscripted insight into Inuit life during their group excursions. —Brandon Presser
