 I'm looking forward to guiding a couple of back to back Floe Edge trips this coming spring near Pond Inlet Nunavut.  Both trips are base camp based and last about nine days.  The first one is the Sea Kayak & X-C Ski trip where we explore both ice and water by either means and return to our base camp nightly.  The second trip is the straight up floe edge base camp trip that suits birders and wildlife fanatics alike.

  In either case, whether you opt for the more adventurous kayak & ski trip or the pure base camp trip there is always the option of opting out of any activity and just doing your own thing in camp.  Whether you want to come for adventure, Inuit culture, the experience of camping over 500' of sea water or hoping for the chance of a lifetime sighting of a Polar Bear or Narwhal, North Baffin in the spring is the best place in the world for it.

To join me, Steve Ruskay and Mark Scriver this spring go to www.blackfeather.com
