Ellesmere Sea Kayaking – Alexandra Fiord

Alexandra Fiord is found high above the Arctic Circle at nearly 80 degrees north latitude, and only 30 kilometers from the west coast of Greenland. Tidewater glaciers calve icebergs into a magnificent fiord system, ringed by the highest mountains in eastern North America. Extreme isolation and harsh weather conditions are present for much of the year, but each summer, for a brief period beneath the midnight sun, the temperature moderates. The snow melts from the rugged mountain peaks, and the sea ice breaks up. This provides a brief opportunity to explore this amazing place by kayak. The islands and fiords are rich with wildlife. Some of the best-preserved artifacts and ruins from Thule, Dorset, and Viking cultures dot the shorelines. The fiord is also home to muskoxen, walruses, narwhal, Arctic foxes, and polar bears.   This is an excellent trip for the experienced paddler wishing to have an amazing Arctic adventure.
