Introduction

The ice-encrusted wildernesses of Canada’s Arctic are beguilingly unique, from the midnight sun to the majestic Northern Lights. Beluga whales swim through the waters of the Northwest Passage, while polar bears and muskoxen are poised on its shores. Caribou migrate through the icy plains by Nunavut’s Ennadai Lake, and wolverines and eagles are forever on the lookout. Discover the epic landscapes of the region, hiking from great canyons to dazzling waterfalls, soaring above the ice in a helicopter and kayaking through crystalline waters.

What people are saying

“We recently travelled to Barcelona and Mallorca with the expert help of Oroko and will never book a holiday any other way again! The staff were so friendly and knowledgable and made the process of booking extremely easy. The travel pack was very impressive with our luggage tags, complimentary treats for the airport, and comprehensive guide to both areas with recommended restaurants which didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t speak highly enough of our experience with this company and would highly recommend to friends.”
