Six years after visiting my first polar region, Svalbard, I reached full circle with my fifth, Canada. Instead of travelling by ship, staying in a hotel or a ranger's hut, on this occasion we travelled out by skidoo towing the inuit qamutik (sled) to camp on the sea ice between Baffin Island and Bylot Island. The main purpose of the trip was to see migrating narwhal who swim in a channel close to the edge of the ice, and polar bears. More is written in my blog. Please note:- there are pictures in this set which may upset some visitors (an ancient human skeleton and a polar bear eating a narwhal carcass).
