Foxe Basin is located between Baffin Island and Melvin Peninsula and is known for its nutrient-rich waters, which are important for nearby bird habitats, walrus herds and bowhead whale migration. This adventure, based out of Igloolik – the oldest and most traditional Inuit community in Nunavut with over 4,000 years of history – immerses travelers in Inuit life and culture on both land and sea.
Spend your days boating in search of marine mammals, including walrus families, spy-hopping bowhead whales and bearded seas. Enjoy hikes around the islands, locating and learning about shore birds, plant life and the immense cultural history unique to Foxe Basin. Led by a seasoned nature photographer, this tour offers wonderful photography opportunities.
The Elu Lodge Adventure was chosen in 2009 as one of National Geographic Traveler’s 50 tours of a lifetime.
