SKIING EXPEDITION - POND INLET
The circular route chosen for this incredible trip will showcase some
of the best landscapes and scenery North Baffin Island has to offer.
In this beautiful and challenging environment, clients will have the opportunity
to ski over frozen lakes and streams, through narrow canyons, past enormous
glaciers and down frozen river systems. One of the highlights of this
unique trip is passing through an amazing unnamed lake system. Surrounded
by high mountains and glaciers, this is a place few people have ever ventured.
A massive calving glacier spills into a lake - creating icebergs, every
year creating something different. At this time of year the lake is completely
frozen and the icebergs are safely locked in the ice. As we make our way,
under constant daylight, through the valleys and lake systems, we will
camp beside the icebergs, using them as an extra source of fresh drinking
Support drop off and pick up will be provided by snowmachine and komatik
(sleds) and clients will pull small gear sleds behind them. On the homeward
bound portion of the trip, we ski across a glacier, then negotiate our
way down a frozen river system before returning to Pond Inlet.
