FUN-photos: Northwest Passage – Part 2 – Cruising Canada

November 8, 2022 by  

With Greenland having massive amounts of ice cruising Canada felt disappointing. We had hoped to see more glaciers and animals plus someone brought COVID aboard and a total of 11 passengers had to quarantine!

That limited our stops of being able to experience the culture and people in the Inuit villages. The other land excursions we had were at the settlements of the early explorers and Thule archaeological ruins.

We would ONLY recommend this trip if you have an “undying urge” to be an explorer and walk in the footsteps of Sir John Franklin and Roald Amundsen.

FUN-fact: Smoking Hills in Franklin Bay – Underneath the rocks are layers of combustible sulphur-rich lignite – brown coal. And when they are exposed by erosion and landslides, they ignite and throw sulphurous gas into the air – the smoking effect.
