    Default Journeying through Arctic lands

    Staggering scenery, rich history and abundant wildlife define the Arctic region between western Greenland and eastern Canada. Left, tourists on an eco-adventure with Lindblad Expeditions sail through the Ilulissat Icefjord, the most active glacier in the Northern Hemisphere

    The harbor town of Sisimiut, Greenland, is a good base for hiking, sailing and kayaking. The local tourist office organizes a number of outings

    Fishing boats in Sisimiut, Greenland. The town used to be a major whaling port, but now its economy is centered on shrimping

    Coastal Greenland is lined with massive icebergs and walls of glacial ice

    A bottlenose whale in the Davis Strait, located between western Greenland and Baffin Island, Canada

    A polar bear on the remote rocks of Monumental Island, Canada. The region's polar bear population is at risk because warming temperatures are melting the sea ice they use as hunting platforms

    Walruses on Akpatok Island, Canada

    Hiking in Cape St. Charles, Canada

    My ass freezes just looking at that, although Sisimiut Greenland looks like a cute little town.
