In 2016 we were proud to accommodate photographer & explorer Joanne Chow Winship on a wildlife expedition to the tundra of Nunavik, Canada. Joanne traveled all the way from her home in California for this trip, and joined two 'Musk-ox, Autumn Colors & Aurora' expeditions back-to-back for ten days. She saw lots of musk-oxen, incredible displays of northern lights, had a special close encounter with an Arctic fox; and even got in some quality fishing time!

This is what Joanne had to say about her northern experience with us:

"The Autumn Musk Ox and Northern Lights adventure was a magical experience..."

"I went in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights, and was delighted on my first night to have them come out and dance across the sky."





"It was an amazing welcome to the camp where the next 10 days were filled with new discoveries."





"I didn't expect the tundra to be such a microcosm of plant life. It was carpeted with many varieties of wild berries. We picked blueberries, cranberries, cloudberries and treated ourselves to making blueberry pancakes. The soft bounce of the tundra put on a new twist to hiking!" 




"One of the many highlights was coming across a fox den with a curious young cross fox who couldn't keep his eyes off the two of us."

After we passed by, I looked back and his head was peaking over the bushes with his gaze still following us.  That was such a sweet encounter with wildlife, not one of fear but curiosity." 




"We had other thrills; coming across the musk ox, a bear, "and bringing in lake trout for dinner. The food was plentiful, but there was something special about being in the wild and being able to gain sustenance from it."



"the dramatic sunsets, the Northern Lights..,"




"The wildlife, stunning vistas, "the pure air and water...,"



"and the very competent and friendly staff made it a truly magical adventure." 






"This is Inuit territory and we were fortunate to touch their world."
